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 Raven is equipped to a high 5 star standard with a king size double bed in the master bedroom with ensuite, large beds in the twin bedroom with separate bathroom with large bath and power shower over. 5 star treats include Messentex treated goose down duvets and soft Egyptian cotton bed linen. We pride ourselves on the comfort of our beds. A holiday would not be a holiday without a good night's sleep. Soft white fluffy towels, bath mats, bathrobes, slippers and Arran Aromatic toiletries. Also included is an entertainment system with 37' LCD TV with Variety with Sports SKY package, Blu Ray DVD, Nintendo Wii and unlimited WiFi. The Raven is situated on the Portnellan Estate high on a hillside with commanding views over Glen Dochart. Raven 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 well over 35 years and offers fantastic facilities to include fresh run salmon and trout fishing on the estate lochs and river, mountain bikes with plenty of trails on and off road for all abilities. Canoes and rowing boats on the river and loch. Clay pigeon shooting can also be arranged. Unlimited Wifi is available throughout the estate as well as BBQ, DVD library and a large selection of board games. We can even offer fresh eggs from the chickens and a selection of organic meat products fresh from a farm locally. perfect for the BBQ or home cooking. The Raven 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 Raven offers the warmest welcome on your return.More
