Morenish Mews is set in four acres of private grounds in a wooded hollow beneath Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve and is surrounded by rolling farmland. Our three acres of loch shore frontage on Loch Tay is an excellent spot for secluded picnics or some free trout fishing.
The pretty village of Killin with its shops, restaurants, hotels, post office, bank and other facilities is less than three miles away and there are a number of other hotels and restaurants in the Breadalbane area where one can dine out.
Morenish Mews is situated some three miles from Killin on the north side of Loch Tay on the A827 road to Kenmore and Aberfeldy. Our Ordnance Survey Grid Reference is NN 6005 3525 on Landranger Map 51 – “Loch Tay and Glen Dochart”.
To find us, if you intend to approach through Killin arriving from the south or west, drive through Killin on the Aberfeldy road (A827) and after about 2.5 miles (4km) you will see a yellow signpost telling you that Morenish Mews is 100m further on, on the right.
If you approach from the east on the A827 from the Aberfeldy end of Loch Tay, you will see the yellow signs for Morenish Mews on your left about one mile after you pass the Cruachan caravan site (also on your left).
Rail. The only rail transport close to the Killin area is the West Highland Line from Glasgow Queen Street station. At Crianlarich station (14 miles / 22 km from Killin) the line splits, with trains going to Oban through Tyndrum Lower station while the trains to Fort William and onwards to Mallaig (connecting with the boat to Armadale on Skye) pass through Tyndrum Upper station. Between Crianlarich and Bridge of Orchy the railway line follows the long-distance West Highland Way walk so it is possible to walk the Crianlarich – Tyndrum – Bridge of Orchy sections of the West Highland Way and return to your starting point by train.
