Built in the style of a grand traditional Scottish Laird’s country house, this is a modern eco house with the luxury for today’s holiday expectations. Its “green” credentials include geothermal pipes in the ground to extract heat to provide hot water and under-floor heating, as well as its own private borehole providing pure mineral water. The property includes a flatscreen TV in each bedroom, a games room, a hot tub and a heated outdoor courtyard swimming pool.

On reaching the house, access via a steep private road of about a mile long, the views over Auchterarder and Gleneagles are stunning. On entering, there is a dining room which seats up to 18 people, large drawing room, even larger kitchen with dining area and living space, utility room, games room with snooker table and shower room. The accommodation is all upstairs on two floors and includes a master double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, three double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, one double bedroom, two twin bedrooms, one bunk bedroom for four children and two bathrooms. Please note that a caretaker resides in a flat to the rear of the building.

The house is situated between Perth and Stirling (and only an hour’s drive from either Edinburgh or Glasgow). Stirling is well known for the imposing Stirling Castle that sits above the town, as well as the Wallace Monument. There is excellent hill walking on the Ochill Hills or there is the more mountainous range Ben Lawers, one of the highest in Scotland, which is a haven to ramblers. The breathtaking landscape and calming atmosphere is what this area is known for, but for the more adventurous visitor, mountaineering, climbing and off-road biking also prove popular.

The world famous Gleneagles Hotel and resort is nearby, with its famous golf courses, as well as horse riding, falconry, shooting school, restaurants, quad biking, fishing and clay-pigeon shooting which are all also available here or elsewhere.
