On your arrival at Ballinreoch, high on the hillside overlooking the valley of the Tay, 8 miles from Pitlochry in Highland Perthshire, you may well feel that you have discovered the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
The house is accessed by about half a mile of track, and when you arrive you are rewarded by what must be arguably one of the most spectacular views in central Scotland, as you look across the valley of the Tay to the hills beyond. Outside, there is plenty of parking, and the house stands in a grass garden (furniture) which forms a kind of Dress Circle for the panorama beyond.
There are makeovers and makeovers, but few can have been so thorough and spectacular as the one which has taken place at Ballinreoch. The large main sitting room has picture windows to the front, an open fire, and is L-shaped to the dining area and finally the superb new kitchen. There is a further sitting room with TV and stove. A utility room and cloakroom complete the downstairs accommodation.
Stairs rise from the main sitting room to the first floor where there are four bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate shower room. (One of the bedrooms is more suitable for children). The whole house, with its smoked oak flooring, has been finished and furnished to the highest of standards. The heating is electric throughout, underfloor downstairs and with radiators upstairs.
The area is just perfect for all manner of active pursuits. In addition to walking, climbing and fishing, there is white water kayaking at the bottom of the drive at Grandtully. Aberfeldy has a leisure centre, golf course, and all facilities, while Pitlochry is famed for its Festival Theatre and fish ladder. And with the A9 just a 10 minute drive from the end of the drive, you can be in the Cairngorms, Grampians, or even Inverness in just over an hour.
The first £20 of electricity and bed linen are INCLUDED and towels may be hired. One well behaved dog by arrangement (sorry no cats) which must be kept under control at all times due to livestock in the surrounding fields. Smoking is not permitted in the cottage. Water is from a private supply (UV filtered). A refundable householder's deposit will be required.
