Shoreside is 3 miles from the beautiful conservation area of Kenmore and 9 miles from Aberfeldy. The area offers easy access to golf, fishing, horse riding, water sports, walking, climbing - the list is endless. Shoreside sits on the edge of Loch Tay in the village of Fearnan and has its own private beach and slipway as well as fishing rights on the loch. The scenery in this stunning area is simply breathtaking. From the balcony of the Quaich enjoy exceptional, uninterrupted views of Loch Tay and the surrounding countryside and hills.

Kenmore village offers a hotel, restaurant and bar, bistro, deli, gift shop, Post Office and general store. There are dozens of walks in the area from gentle riverside strolls to Munro climbing as well as mountain bike trails. Hill walkers are spoilt for choice with many outstanding walks and seven Munros within ten miles, including Ben Lawers and Schiehallion. The Loch Tay Forest Park is also close by and provides a variety of trails, which are perfect for more leisurely walks, mountain biking and horse riding.

Glen Lyon, Scotland's longest and loveliest glen, is nearby; Fortingall village is only 3 miles away, which houses Britain's oldest tree and a very good restaurant in the Fortingall Hotel. The House of Bruar at Blair Atholl, known as the Harrods of the North, is a perfect day out for keen shoppers - combine a shopping trip with a walk up Bruar Falls! Golfers will be in their element - there are 2 golf courses in Kenmore and another 4 within a 30 minute drive.
