Karelia Lodge offers bright and spacious holiday accommodation all on one level in the heart of highland Perthshire, with stunning views over the River Tay and surrounding countryside. Situated on a working farm, this is a great year-round location for a rural escape for couples, friends or a family to relax and explore this most picturesque area. From your door there are miles of footpaths and cycle tracks on quiet roads and through the countryside to follow.
There is much to do in this wonderful Highland area, just 3 miles along the road at the end of Loch Tay is the pretty conservation village of Kenmore, where guests can enjoy riverside walks, water sports, take a boat trip on the Loch or stop off at one of the several excellent places to eat. Kenmore hosts events throughout the year, and in January has a ceremony to mark the opening of the salmon fishing season, and a firework display at New Year.
Aberfeldy is less than 10 minutes’ drive away and is well worth visiting, with a good selection of quality places to eat, local independent shops and a supermarket, galleries, book shops, an Art Deco cinema and a whisky distillery.
There are ample opportunities for walker of all abilities with the 7 Munros circuit within 10 miles, including Ben Lawers (Perthshire’s highest mountain) and Schiehallion. Follow mountain biking trails through the forest, or enjoy white water rafting on the River Tay, bungee jumping and horse riding, all available close by. Golf enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with numerous 9 and 18-hole courses in the area. The lodge is in an ideal location for exploring further afield, including Perth, Stirling, Pitlochry, Oban and Glencoe, all within a comfortable driving distance, as are the ski slopes at Aviemore and Glenshee
By prior arrangement the owner can provide crafting and knitting experience packages (at cost), or arrange for a sewing machine in the lodge for your own use. The River Tay is one of the finest angling rivers in Scotland and a licence for two rods is included. After a busy day exploring, Karelia Lodge offers a peaceful place to return to. Enjoy a barbecue on the large decked area or watch the stars in the evening. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
