Liangarstan House revels in the stunning scenery off Scotland's, Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, set back from the A85 in wide and tranquil Glen Dochart, surrounded by the majesty of Scotland's Highland landscape. The Glen runs from Crianlarich in the west, to Killin and Loch Tay in the East. The River Dochart, a fishing river of note (Salmon and Trout), runs through the Glen from the small but lovely Loch Dochart near Crianlarich to Killin where it plunges spectacularly into the river Tay, at the Falls of Dochart. Sheltered by the foothills and slopes of the surrounding Munro's (>3000ft) Corbett's (>2500ft) and Grahams (>2000ft) all overlooked by the magnificent peaks of Stob Binnein, Ben Mhor and Sgiath Chuil, Liangarstan House offers breath-taking views of the rugged and romantic scenery, once home to 'Rob Roy' MacGregor
Built in 1643, Over its ≈400 years, Liangarstan House has fulfilled the role of farm steading, Estate House, Water Mill House, Drovers Inn and family home.
The location is accessible By road from Scotland's business sector and central belt, Glasgow is an hour away (M90 or A82) and Edinburgh (M90) 15 minutes more, with respective airports a little less than this. The main train line north from Glasgow stops throughout the day, at nearby Crianlarich, 9 miles to the west. The cities of Perth and Stirling are respectively 36 and 44 miles.
Our local town of Killin (5 miles) provides all that is necessary for weekly shopping, with supermarket, shops, post office, police station, garage, petrol station and outdoor activity facilities, all year round And a wonderful choice of quality restaurants and hotels to cater for the hungry and thirsty, local or visitor alike.
Approach to the property is west of Lix Toll, 2 miles along the A85, then turning off via independent slip road loop. Setback, elevated and safely isolated from the main thoroughfare, the access road is around 250m long and facilitates deliveries/refuse collection to your door, while providing secluded parking for a considerable number of vehicles.
The spectacular north view from the front of the House overlooks the 'Colin Burt' nature reserve and to the grazing on both sides of the river Dochart, then to the Auchlyne hills and (Munro) Sgiath Chuil beyond.
Liangarstan House can form one very large property or could be used as main house and self-contained cottage or self-catering/rental prospect. Currently used as the former, but lockable double internal communicating doors isolate the cottage easily if the latter is preferred. The Cottage has its own front entrance porch as well as patio doors to the generous rear garden.
Externally, the owners have proactively maintained the whole fabric and facade of the building, but kept the period appearance, including the 'Ballachulish Slate' roof. It all results in very pleasing presentation.
