Holiday Rental House
Ptarmigan is one of the most popular properties on the Portnellan Estate. With breath taking views to the East I often see people taking in the amazing sunrise from their private balcony. With a spacious open plan kitchen, living and dining area the property benefits from large double glazed windows leading to a private balcony with garden furniture, offering unrestricted East facing views over Glen Dochart, the river, Loch Iuibhair (pronounced Ewar) and the surrounding mountains. A truly magnificent Highland setting and a view that will be hard to beat from a self catering holiday property in Scotland. With all the comforts from home (and more) the Ptarmigan is equipped to a 4 star standard with a king size double bed in the master bedroom and large single beds in the twin bedroom with ...Ptarmigan is one of the most popular properties on the Portnellan Estate. With breath taking views to the East I often see people taking in the amazing sunrise from their private balcony. With a spacious open plan kitchen, living and dining area the property benefits from large double glazed windows leading to a private balcony with garden furniture, offering unrestricted East facing views over Glen Dochart, the river, Loch Iuibhair (pronounced Ewar) and the surrounding mountains. A truly magnificent Highland setting and a view that will be hard to beat from a self catering holiday property in Scotland. With all the comforts from home (and more) the Ptarmigan is equipped to a 4 star standard with a king size double bed in the master bedroom and large single beds in the twin bedroom with separate bathroom, bath with shower over. 4 star treats include soft Egyptian cotton bed linen and white fluffy towels. We pride ourselves on the comfort of our beds. A holiday would not be a holiday without a good night's sleep. Also included is WiFi. The Ptarmigan is situated on the Portnellan Estate high on a hillside and is one of the most tranquil and privately located chalets on the Portnellan estate. Ptarmigan has a magnificent setting with a true Highland landscape all around. Often complimented by the abundance of bird and wild life that can be seen on the estate it is not unusual to see the deer meandering off the hill and passing nearby the chalet. The Portnellan Estate has been privately owned by the same family for well over 35 years and offers fantastic facilities to include fresh run salmon and trout fishing on the estate lochs and river, mountain bike hire with plenty of trails on and off road for all abilities. Canoes and rowing boats on the nearby river and loch can be used free of charge. Clay pigeon shooting can also be arranged. Wifi is available throughout the estate as well as BBQ hire, DVD library and a large selection of board games. We can even offer fresh eggs from the chickens on the estate and a selection of organic meat products fresh from a farm locally. perfect for the BBQ or home cooking. The Ptarmigan is so centrally located for exploring Central/West Scotland with known landmarks only a short distance away. Oban 45 mins, Stirling, Fort William and Glasgow just over an hour. Edinburgh 1.5 hours. Glen Coe and all it beholds is less than 40 mins drive and the bonnie shores of Loch Lomond are 20 mins by car. Other areas include the truly beautiful Glen Lyon and Loch Tay, Glen Etive, Glen Lochay and Glen Orchy all within the local area. Whether you are looking for the adrenaline rush of adventure or lazy days on your doorstep, out and about on the many hills in the local area or exploring one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland, Portnellan and the Ptarmigan offers the warmest welcome on your return. General features: Double glazing, fitted carpets, leather lounge suite, dining table and chairs, electric heating, 37' LCD TV with DVD and Freeview SKY package (SKY box with package can be hired at £20 per stay), vacuum cleaner, iron, ironing board and clothes horse.
