Chamberbhan sits on the banks of Loch Tummel, and the house's 34 acres lie in the middle of the famous Queen's View. The road that leads you to Chamberbhan is referred to in the old Scottish song 'The Road to the Isles' and by those bonny banks you can fish and swim.
This area of Perthshire is known as the 'Heart of Activity Scotland' and the 'Heart of Big Tree Country' featuring the Tayforest Park with its extensive walking, wildlife and heritage. There are battlefields (Killiekrankie), castles (Blair and Menzies), cathedrals (Dunkeld) and historic houses and gardens to visit.
This is a 'go-to spot' for cyclists especially in May when Chamberbhan is on the route of the Caledonian Etape. The rivers and lochs allow for extensive water based activities (white water rafting, kayaking) and of course there are many golf courses both small and local and large and world famous.
The nearest town is Pitlochry, home of the wonderful Pitlochry Festival Theatre where you are able to see six plays in six days! Further up the road is Blair Atholl with its working watermill, the Falls and the shopping destination, House of Bruar.
The Inn at Loch Tummel is a traditional and stylish country inn offering delicious food and just a five minute walk from the end of the drive.
