Pitlochry is just 4.5 miles to the north where the mainline railway station provides regular services to Inverness, Perth, Edinburgh and Glasgow as well as the Caledonian sleeper service to London.
Despite these convenient transport links, the relatively isolated nature of the property offers a rarely available degree of privacy in what is an extremely sought-after area.
Croftlea is accessed by private estate track suitable for most standard road vehicles. The track leads up to, and terminates at, the property.

The garden extends to the east of the property where the second area of garden ground extending to 0.2 of an acre.
