About the neighbourhood
Within 300 metres of Glenvarloch is a part completed 'Broch' - an ancient dwelling house. The property is within strolling distance of Loch Lubnaig and a short drive brings you to the Falls of Leny, Bracklinn Falls and Callander. The spectacular Falls of Dochart at Killin to the north also feed off the sometimes inclement weather - so any rain has a positive effect ! Fishing is available in the nearby Balvaig River (permit from the local shop) and at numerous locations nearby. There are a number of excellent Golf courses nearby including St. Fillans, Comrie, Callander and Gleneagles is only 52 km away The village of Strathyre has an Inn and a Restaurant, with the nearest 'The Inn at Strathyre' being less than 200m away.
