Drumcroy provides purchasers with a rare opportunity to acquire an individual holiday lodge from a successful business in a magnificent Highland Perthshire setting enjoying views across the Strathtay Valley, all within approximately 90 minutes drive of both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The wider Drumcroy site previously formed part of the neighbouring farm and was initially developed as a diversification to that business before coming under the current proprietors ownership in 2015. During their period of tenure, the Drumcroy lodges have been renovated in a modern Scandinavian style to provide minimalist yet comfortable accommodation from which to explore and enjoy the surrounding countryside and partake in the myriad of outdoor opportunities the local area provides.
Extending to approximately 1.12Ha (2.75 acres) in total, the Drumcroy development comprised 6 recently refurbished holiday lodges in an elevated location with magnificent views.
The other 5 lodges have all now been sold in quick succession, with Rannoch being the final lodge still available
Nestled amongst the undulating foothills of the Highland fringe at approximately 135 metres above sea level, Drumcroy benefits from a primarily northerly outlook which provides Rannoch Lodge with largely unobstructed views of the adjacent bank of the River Tay and into the Strathtay Valley to the east.
Located approximately one mile east of the town of
Aberfeldy, which is a 20 minute walk or a short drive away, Rannoch Lodge enjoys easy access to local services which include a supermarket, petrol station, health services, bank, post office, veterinary surgery and dental practices.
Further to the south east lies Perth, which is the major urban hub in the region and provides the full range of commercial, professional and leisure services one might expect from a city. Perth can be easily accessed by road via the A827 which links directly onto the A9 (the arterial road link between Inverness and the south) at the Logierait/Ballinluig junction, eight-and-a-half miles to the east.
There are also mainline railway stations available at
Pitlochry (14 miles to the north east) and Dunkeld
(17 miles to the south east), both of which provide
regular services to Inverness, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The sleeper service to London is also accessible on this line.
Rannoch Lodge was built in the late 1990s and is of timber framed construction under pitched tile covered roof. Following a series of (mainly internal) renovations in 2015, which included the installation of new bathroom and kitchen, as well as a programme of internal painting and refurnishing, Rannoch is in good condition.
Rannoch comprises an open plan kitchen/diner and living room with French doors opening onto a small deck area which is sheltered to the north by mature trees and herbaceous undergrowth. From the patio, Rannoch looks north east beyond Tummel Lodge and down into the eastern Strathtay Valley. There are two double bedrooms, a well-appointed family bathroom with WC, sink and electric shower over the bath.
Double glazed throughout Rannoch benefits from mains water supply (partially delivered through private pipes) and shared drainage by way of septic tank, while heating is provided by a combination of wall mounted electric panel heaters and a wood burning stove in the living room.
Rannoch has a current EPC rating of G.
Outside, Rannoch is neighboured by Lyon Lodge to the south and Tummel Lodge to the east. There are small areas of lawn to the front and rear with mature trees bordering to the north. The woodland area recently underwent some thinning increasing the amount of sunlight received by Rannoch and greatly enhancing the views.
The shared access road leads directly past Rannoch and there is a dedicated parking space immediately to the south.
The common areas, including the access to the site from the south west which is suitable for standard road vehicles, are maintained by the current owners on a proportionate/user basis along with the individual lodge owners and neighbouring farmer.
A deed of conditions governing maintenance and legal responsibility for the common areas within the site boundary post-sale has already been put in place by the sellers solicitors following the sale of the other five lodges. This will be available to review as part of the due diligence process following receipt of a note of interest or formal written offer along with further details about indicative occupancy levels and turnover when Rannoch formed part of the holiday business if required
Rannoch Lodge would be ideally suited to someone who wanted to secure a weekend escape from the city and make the most of the ease of access which it provides to the abundant outdoor pursuits available across wider Highland Perthshire
