Around East Lodge

Built by the present owner's great-grandfather as the gate lodge of the east drive to Dunalastair House in 1892, this house has spectacular views across the river to Schiehallion mountain.  The drive is no longer in use as it is finishes a few hundred yards along the river at a spectacular dam.  It makes a beautiful riverside walk. 

You can walk from the cottage through the pine woods along the riverside in both directions. To the east a few hundred yards away are some attractive falls amongst the boulders and pine trees. By the house there is a stretch of the river known as the Queen's Pool where you can fish for trout and you can sometimes see salmon. Legend has it that this was where Robert the Bruce ferried his queen across the river.

For larger parties of up to 12, there is another cottage, Tuim, a few hundred meters across wild garden ground that could be rented together with East Lodge.

The area around the cottage is unfenced but the grass in front is mown.

Free trout fishing is available in season.  See Fishing for details.
