The whole area is steeped in history, with Blair Castle forming an impressive gateway to the Highlands for the last 700 years. Slightly further afield, Pitlochry provides additional quality independent shops, galleries and small supermarkets as well as great places to eat and drink.

In Blair Atholl, there is a golf course and Blair Castle and Gardens which are open to the public and host a range of events throughout the year including the Blair Horse Trials. There is a primary school in Blair Atholl with a high school in Pitlochry and various highly regarded private schools within the wider Perthshire area.

An Cro is a traditionally constructed stone cottage under a pitched timber framed slate covered roof. While requiring a degree of internal modernisation, the property has the potential to provide a comfortable home and currently consists of two double bedrooms, a family bathroom, sitting room and kitchen.
The roof space has been used as additional accommodation in the past. However, there is currently no stairway or ladder to access this area, but this could be reinstated following some reconfiguration of the floor layout on the ground floor.
The property currently extends to approximately 50.8m2 (over one floor) and includes the following:
Kitchen 3.8m x 1.9m
Bedroom 1 3.5m x 2.6m
Bedroom 2 3.7m x 2.7m
Sitting Room 3.7m x 3.4m
Bathroom 2.4m x 1.6m
The property benefits from an enclosed lawn to the side and rear (west and north) of the house, with a small parking area to the front (south). The shed and ground beyond the fence to the rear of the property are not included in the sale.
The property is double glazed on the ground floor, with single glazing in the attic. It benefits from mains water and electricity, with drainage to a private septic tank. There is an oil-fired central heating system, as well as a woodburning stove in the living room for additional space heating.
