About this property

  • Loch Tummel House was constructed in 1972 and is an example of cutting edge architecture of its time. A cantilever roof construction features ventilated, knot-free yellow pine ceiling finishing and similar vertical shutters that add to the character of the property. Even today, the layout of the house would suit modern lifestyles with an open plan kitchen / dining / living room forming the main accommodation and a glazed southerly wall framing the loch view. The house was designed with practicality in mind. The accommodation, which is arranged on one storey, consists of three bedrooms at the east end of the house served by two bathrooms and with plenty of built in storage and shelving. The principal bedroom, sitting room and kitchen all have stunning southerly views across Loch Tummel. All windows are double glazed. The living room opens to the kitchen and allows for open plan living with an expanse of south facing windows filling the rooms with light. The house has an integral garage/ workshop and utility space. Over the last 10 years the property has been kept warm and dry but has not been lived in and it is ripe for modernisation or re-development.

    In the last decade two proposals have been approved for the re-development of Loch Tummel House (12/02106/FLL and 16/01816/FLL) although neither of the schemes were built out.

    Garden and grounds
    Loch Tummel House is set in just over 20 acres of grounds which are mainly woodland although there is a terraced garden at the front of the house with fantastic views and a grass paddock which stretches down to the woodland. The property is approached by a gated driveway which winds through the woods to a parking area beside the house. A grassy path leads from here through the woodland to the lochside where an old summer house sits above the water's edge. There is a shingle beach where there was once a jetty. With some landscaping and clearing much more could be made of this pretty section of shoreline. The grounds around Loch Tummel House are a haven for wildlife, and red squirrels, roe deer, ospreys and pine martens are all regular visitors.

    Site of Special Scientific Interest.
    An area of ground on the western side of Loch Tummel House has been designated an SSSI by NatureScot due to the rare vegetation that grows there.

    Outbuildings
    Double garage, log store, greenhouse and summer house (all in need of repair).

Local information

  • Loch Tummel House is situated in a secluded position on the south facing slope of the north shore of Loch Tummel. The house has outstanding views over the loch and to the hillside on the south shore of the loch. The property is within striking distance of some of Perthshire's most beautiful natural landmarks and towns: Pitlochry, Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Dunkeld, Blair Castle, The Queen's View, Ben Vrackie and Schiehallion to name a few.
  • Although Loch Tummel House feels wonderfully remote, it is just a quarter of a mile from the Strathtummel Inn and approximately 4 miles to the nearest shop at Tummel Bridge. It is 10 miles from Pitlochry, which has professional and health services as well as a supermarket, a variety of independent shops, restaurants and an acclaimed theatre. The town also has a train station with daily services to Inverness and London.
  • Loch Tummel House could hardly be better placed for those who enjoy the outdoors. With approximately 250m of loch frontage and hidden shingle beaches, there is scope (subject to obtaining the relevant planning consents) to build a jetty and boathouse. Quite apart from the fun there is to be had from land belonging to Loch Tummel House, there are any number of opportunities for boating (there is a sailing club at Loch Tummel), wild swimming, fishing, walking and cycling in the surrounding countryside.
  • All distances and travel times are approximate.

Additional information

  • Directions: Heading north from Perth leave the A9 just north of Pitlochry and join the B8019. After about 1.5 miles turn left towards Tummel Bridge and Kinloch Rannoch. After about 4 miles pass the Queen's View car park and the entrance to Loch Tummel House is about 2.7 miles further along the road, on the left hand side.
