Good Thursday morning! A rural thatched cottage in Scotland with additional B-listed cottage to be restored!
This little property has me dreaming of a cozy country life in Scotland. Beautiful rural scenery, but still accessible to schools and conveniences. One hour’s drive from Perth. While living in the snug Garden Cottage, you could slowly restore the West Cottage back to livable condition. I imagine one of the cottages could become an office (maybe an architect’s office?) or you could turn it into a countryside guest house to rent to those looking for some tranquility.
From the listing on Country Life:
Garden Cottage and West Cottage are situated in a hamlet once known as the ‘fermtoun’ of Tullicro. There are just four other inhabited properties in the group, three of which are arranged around a neat triangle of grass affectionately known as the village green. The neighbouring properties are generally of traditional stone construction which have been sympathetically developed and extended. The Garden Cottagehas a studio living room with kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, utility room, store room and attic. The adjacent West Cottage has store rooms, is B-listed and in a derelict condition.
Garden Cottage and West Cottage have a beautiful rural setting just to the west of Aberfeldy. The surrounding countryside is a picturesque mixture of rolling fields, woodland and spectacular heather-clad hills. Aberfeldy is the nearest main centre and has a full array of services. The town has a great selection of independent shops, cafés and restaurants, a cinema and medical practice. Breadalbane Academy provides nursery to sixth year secondary education.
The south facing cottages are situated in an enviable rural location, yet easily accessible. In addition to a nine hole golf course at Aberfeldy, there are courses at Kenmore, Dunkeld and Pitlochry. Various water sports take place on nearby lochs and rivers, with a renowned canoeing course at the Grandtully rapids. There is also a purpose built water sports centre at Loch Tay. A haven for outdoor enthusiasts with numerous opportunities for hill climbing and walking nearby. Fishing is available on the rivers Lyon, Tummel and Tay, and shooting and stalking can all be taken locally.
A stunning area of spectacular scenery boasting some of Scotland’s most famous beauty spots, namely: Glen Lyon, the conservation village of Fortingall, the Falls of Dochart at Killin, Kenmore on Loch Tay, The Queen’s View at Loch Tummel and the spectacular munros of Schiehallion and Ben Lawers close by.
The cottages enjoy all the benefits of a highland location, while remaining very accessible: Perth is only 36 miles away, while Edinburgh and Glasgow are both within about 80 miles. Pitlochry railway station (about 20 miles) also has direct links to Inverness and London.
