Facilities

The Big Shed is a bright, modern building with excellent facilities, sitting in a beautiful spot adjacent to the Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve, with views over Loch Tay. You’ll find a sandy lochside beach, natural woodlands, large open spaces and mountains, all rich in flora, fauna and archaeological heritage.

About the space

On the ground floor, the Big Shed has a main hall, a kitchenette/small social space, a small well-equipped commercial kitchen and an unfurnished workshop.

There is a live/work creative studio on the first floor and a 35m x 25m grassy area outside the building.     

Our water comes straight from the mountain directly above the Big Shed, via a UV filtration plant, which treats without adding chlorine, leaving it tasting lovely.

The building has wireless broadband.
