The Owl House is a cosy retreat, five minutes from historic Fortingall. This former outbuilding has been lovingly renovated and commands beautiful views over the glen. At night, add some logs to the wood-burning stove, sit back, and enjoy listening to the owls hooting. Glen Lyon, Ben Lawers, Schiehallion, Aberfeldy, Drummond Hill and Loch Tay are just a stones throw away. Well-behaved dogs welcome.

The space
The Owl House comprises an open plan kitchen / dining / sitting room on the ground floor with a wood burning stove and modern kitchen with fridge, electric hob, electric oven and washing machine. Patio doors to the front open onto a paved terrace with views over Drummond Hill. Stairs lead to the first floor bedroom with adjoining en suite shower room with underfloor heating. Everything is provided for a peaceful, relaxing break - towels, linens, tea, coffee, Highland Soap Company shower products, and a log store stacked full of wood for the fire.

After living outside of the UK for 18 years - 15 years in the USA and then 3 years in Colombia - we decided it was time to return home with our young family . We are so happy to have found our perfect nest in the heart of Highland Perthshire, just minutes from historic Fortingall, Loch Tay and Glen Lyon. We love the landscape, wildlife, and lifestyle, and we're excited to be able to share it with other people.
