Chalet
Pinemarten is a stunningly beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom chalet that can sleep up to 4 people in absolute 5 star comfort which has recently been completely rebuilt from the ground up and is our newest addition to the Portnellan holiday accommodation offering. The exterior is finished in Scottish Larch with a wood treatment that defines the wood affect and showcases the natural grain. A composite decking ramp leads from your private car park to the rear of the chalet to a front door leading into a utility room with coat rack, boot rack, washing machine and separate tumble dryer. Walk through to the open plan living, dining and kitchen area and you will be immediately struck by the beautiful views captured through the ceiling to floor windows. A truly magnificent Highland setting.

The exterior is finished in Scottish Larch with a wood treatment that defines the wood affect and showcases the natural grain. A composite decking ramp leads from your private car park to the rear of the chalet to a front door leading into a utility room with coat rack, boot rack, washing machine and separate tumble dryer. Walk through to the open plan living, dining and kitchen area and you will be immediately struck by the beautiful views captured through the ceiling to floor windows. A truly magnificent Highland setting. The interior has been designed by the owner Lucy Taylor and is beautifully styled, light and fresh although in keeping with what you would expect from a chalet in the Highlands of Scotland, Pinemarten is warm and cosy. The soft furnishings in all rooms have been upholstered in hand chosen quality fabrics and are colour coordinated with Farrow and Ball wall colours complimenting a theme of 'Flora, Fauna and Feathers' The equipment available within the chalet will cater for all the needs of a luxury holiday chalet. A fully fitted galley kitchen with Bosch and NEFF appliances including mid height double oven, microwave, extractor fan, dishwasher, under counter fridge, separate freezer and Nespresso coffee machine. Sit in the comfort of your deep sunk sofa with an abundance of scatter cushions to snug into and watch your favourite programme on the LCD wall mounted TV, Blu Ray DVD or online stream with your dedicated WiFi router. Leading from the living area are patio doors opening onto a large private composite decking area with BBQ and garden furniture. From here you can marvel at the elevated position Pinemarten has on the Portnellan Estate providing you with sensational views across Loch Iuibhair (pronounced Ewar), Glen Dochart, the famous Ben More and the surrounding mountains. A view that will be hard to beat from any self catering holiday property on mainland Scotland. Walk through to the bedrooms and Pinemarten has a master king size double bedroom with ensuite shower room. The bedroom has been designed with twin built in mirrored wardrobes and bedside tables. Bedside sockets have USB charging points. The bespoke hand made solid Oak sink unit in the ensuite shower room is fitted with twin sinks and an illuminated, vanity mirror with demister pad and socket. The shower cubicle is fully tiled with hand cut glass tiles in Rainforest Green, a slimline shower tray with Jaquar designed centre rose and hand held shower head. The second bedroom is a twin with 2 large single beds with 'under the bed' storage, a built in mirrored double wardrobe. There is a separate bathroom with large bath and power shower over. The bathroom is styled with light pink butcher block tiling as well as a bespoke hand made solid Oak sink unit fitted with Jaquar twin sinks, illuminated vanity mirror with demister pad and socket. 5 star treats include Messentex treated goose down duvets (synthetic available upon request) and soft Egyptian cotton bed linen. We pride ourselves on the comfort of our beds and Pinemarten is no exception with hotel grade, 2000 spring, pocket sprung bed mattresses with Cashmere top. A holiday would not be a holiday without a good night's sleep. Soft white fluffy towels, bathrobes, slippers and Arran Aromatic toiletries are supplied free of charge Situated on the Portnellan Estate high on a hillside with commanding views over Glen Dochart, Pinemarten has a magnificent setting with a true Highland landscape all around. Often complimented by the abundance of bird and wild life that an 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 nearly 40 years and offers fantastic facilities including fresh run wild salmon and trout fishing on the estate lochs and river, mountain bikes with plenty of trails on and off road for all abilities, a games room with table tennis, table football, pool table and a small gym. Canadian canoes, kayaks and rowing boats are free to use on the river and loch. Clay pigeon shooting can also be arranged. Portnellan Estate is the perfect base for exploring Central/West Scotland with known landmarks only a short distance away. Oban 45 minutes, Stirling, Fort William and Glasgow just over 1 hour and Edinburgh a 90 min drive. 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. More

The view alone was worth coming to Portnellan for, and the lovely chalet was the icing on the cake. Such attention to detail, from quality bed linen to comprehensive instructions with maps for places to visit. Ideally placed for touring the area, Loch Lomond, Callendar...More

About the neighbourhood
Having grown up at Portnellan I know of some great hidden gems in the area. Without giving too much away before you have visited there are a number of great adventures to be had at Portnellan. Towering above the estate is the famous mountain, Ben More. It is the highest of all the mountains in the Southern Highlands and is well over 1100 metres in height. Loch Dochart has an island which can be paddled out on the canoes and kayaks where you will find a traditional castle ruin to explore. Loch Iuibhair boasts good fishing and is a great loch for open water swimming. Ben More burn that runs through the Portnellan Estate has some great waterfall pools that can be enjoyed both in and out of the water.
