Fin Glen is one of two houses set in woodland in the hills to the south of Loch Tay. The properties are adjacent to Brae Lodge which was formally a residential outdoor activity centre.
The surrounding scenery is breathtaking with woodland around the loch and mountains including Ben Lawers rising above. This area is popular for hill walking with The Rob Roy Way passing Fin Glen. It is home to a rich variety of wildlife, with many species of birds, including ospreys, and red squirrels. Otters are sometimes seen on the loch shore. Loch Tay offers sailing, boating and fishing. Other attractions include the Falls of Dochart and Dewars Distillery.
Killin and Kenmore are the local villages at either end of Loch Tay, each with their own primary school. Killin has local shops, pubs and hotels and the Falls of Dochart is a much-photographed beauty spot. Kenmore has a hotel and pub, caf�, local deli, shop, post office. There are nine hole golf courses in both villages, and Taymouth Castle is an 18 hole course. Aberfeldy has more extensive restaurant and retail opportunities, a leisure centre and secondary school. Private schooling is at Glenalmond College, Morrison's Academy and Ardvreck (preparatory), all in or near Crieff.
Despite its highland setting, Brae Lodge is centrally located and accessible. Perth is 46 miles and both Edinburgh and Glasgow are within 80 miles. Pitlochry railway station is on the mainline from Inverness to London and served by the ScotRail sleeper service. The A9 is the main access route into the Highlands and links with the M90 south to Edinburgh. Edinburgh Airport is on the near side of the city.
Fin Glen and neighbouring Seon na Glen were built in circa 1990 as staff accommodation for neighbouring Brae Lodge. There was an HMO licence for this purpose.
The house is of modern cavity wall construction with harled walls and a pitched slate roof. It has wooden double glazed windows and oil fired central heating.
The accommodation is arranged off a central hall with a WC beside the front door. The living accommodation comprises a sitting room and fitted kitchen with a utility room at the back door. There are six bedrooms in all, two on the ground floor and four on the first floor where there are also two bathrooms.
Planning permission was granted in May 2021 for change of use from staff accommodation to residential dwelling house. Stirling Council reference 21/00180/FUL.
The grounds with Fin Glen extend to about 0.3 acres. There are gravelled parking areas to the front and side of the house with shrubs around. Wooden steps and a low wooden fence lead up to the house. The remainder of the grounds are open woodland with grass below.
