The Loch Tay region

Wester Lix is a wooded area within the Loch Lomond National Park and designated as area of outstanding natural beauty. Yet only 2 miles from the village of Killin. The remoteness of the area encourages the wildlife and if you are lucky you may see around the cottage Deer, Hare, Rabbit, Pine Martin, Red Squirrel and for the bird watchers Golden Eagle, Osprey, Red Kite, Hen Harrier and even the occasional White Tailed Sea Eagle!

If you enjoy cycling we are a few hundred yards from the National Cycle Route 7 which runs between Glasgow and Inverness and our area is considered the most stunning!

One of the journeys worth doing is just a 40 minute drive across Rannoch Moor to Glen Coe as the scenery is breathtaking. Another journey we do regular is to Oban which is around 60 minute drive and then get the ferry as a foot passenger across to The Isle of Mull. The sea journey takes around 45 minutes and depending on the time of year you may see porpoise, dolphin or even whale!

On the return journey we always stop at Tyndrum and get Fish and Chip supper from the Good Food Cafe (Best Haddock Ever).

If you are a water-sports addict like me, I can arrange fishing, waterskiing, speedboat rides or Sailing on the beautiful Loch Earn home of the early water skiing pioneers.
