Spacious 5 bedroom "Eco Home" bounded by two burns and woodland

Aros was the culmination of a long-held ambition of the current owners to design their own "eco-home", drawing inspiration from Swedish design philosophy. Situated above Loch Tay in a south facing, sheltered position, Aros has been finished to a high specification and sits within established gardens full of colour, enjoying extended views of the Lawers Burn. The house is very energy efficient and benefits from a 12kW wood burning stove, ground source heat pump providing background underfloor heating and hot water, with a mechanical ventilation system and heat exchanger. There is also a large lofted double skin detached garage building with two solar panels to supplement the "heat store". Aros offers a wonderful opportunity to a buyer as either a family home or a holiday home.

Situated below the Kenmore-Killin road (A827), it was constructed in 201. The two-storey house is of double insulated timber frame construction, NorDan double glazed windows and doors and a combination of solid oak and tile flooring. The open plan kitchen-dining-sitting room with a cathedral ceiling and wood burning stove is at the heart of this home. The floor to ceiling windows flood this area with natural light and enhance the dual aspect views. The mezzanine above the sitting room with fabulous views of the Lawers Burn and surrounding countryside.

Aros is situated in a sheltered, south facing position above Loch Tay with varied rural views within the hamlet of Lawers that includes the Lawers Hotel.

Lawers is midway between the picture postcard village of Kenmore (8miles east) and Killin (9 miles west) with the famous Falls of Dochart. The journey along the north side of the Loch provides many and varied panoramic views across Loch Tay. Both villages have a range of local services and community activities, including restaurants, coffee shops and outdoor activities equipment hire outlets with Killin also have a Co-op food store.

The town of Aberfeldy, about 14 miles east, offers a comprehensive range of shops and services including a larger Co-op supermarket, the excellent Birks cinema and award-winning Watermill Bookshop, petrol station and various primary health services. The Breadalbane Campus has a swimming pool, gym and library.

Local schooling includes a primary school at Kenmore with Breadalbane Academy in Aberfeldy catering for pupils from nursery through to the end of secondary school. The wider area also has several boarding schools (Strathallan, Ardvreck and Glenalmond).


The Tay Valley and wider Perthshire region has an established reputation as a leading outdoor playground including opportunities for hill walking, water sports, cycling, fishing, golf and wildlife spotting. Aros sits at the east end of the Ben Lawers horseshoe ridge walk that includes five "Munros". The local area is also rich in history including Old Lawers Village, Scottish Crannog Centre and Castle.

Edinburgh and Glasgow are equidistant from Loch Tay and, in addition to the cultural, academic and shopping opportunities they provide, both have international airports which can normally be reached in under 2 hours.
