Glenfernate's "low" ground consists of rough permanent pasture, rising to heather moorland drained by the Fernate burn, a tributary of Scotland's largest river, the Tay.
Herds of wild deer are common, together with grouse, ptarmigan and other game.
Our accommodation provides a superb base and an excellent opportunity to enjoy the peace and quiet of a get away from it all holiday for a range of outdoor pursuits including hill-walking, bird-watching, in the most magnificent surroundings this area has to offer, and brown trout fishing on our private loch, which includes its own fishing hut and rowing boat. Wildlife is also prolific here in the forests and moorland but access to the hills may be restricted in certain areas in October.
