Property Description

J&H Mitchell are delighted to bring to market this charming cottage, nestled in a picturesque location on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park.

This characterful home is situated on a quiet side road close to Killiecrankie village, within beautiful native woodlands and adjacent to open fields that allow views up to Ben Vrackie.

The cottage benefits from recent upgrades that are sympathetic to its age, including traditional column radiators, braided cord pendant lights and bakelite electrical switches. It also boasts original features such as 4-panel interior doors, fireplaces and high ceilings.

The cottage consists of an attractive, bright living room with painted wooden floorboards and dual-aspect windows, one of which has a window seat with views across the garden. There is also a newly installed Morso ‘Squirrel’ multi-fuel stove with full-height recessed shelves on either side.

The kitchen, located towards the rear of the property, has white wall and floor units with a wood-effect worktop. There is space for a cooker, washing machine and fridge.

There are two bedrooms, both of which retain the old fireplaces and original wood flooring as features. The shower room consists of a shower cubicle with an electric shower, WC and WHB.

Externally, there is a stone-built lean-to with two separate spaces, one providing ample storage and the other housing the oil-fired boiler.

The large garden is partly laid to grass with flower borders and raised beds. There is also a woodland garden all around the house, with beautiful native trees on slightly elevated ground and cut pathways.

The cottage is a Grade C listed building. This listing is usually applied to buildings of special architectural or historical interest which are good examples of a particular period, style or type. In this case a C listing does not prevent alterations, it simply requires that listed building permission must be sought in advance. Further information is available from Historic Environment Scotland.

Just a short walk away are the Killiecrankie Visitor Centre and Cafe, the historic Soldier’s Leap, Killicrankie House Hotel and Restaurant, as well as an extensive network of footpaths and cycleways.

Blair Atholl, three miles to the north, has a village shop and cafes, while Pitlochry, four miles to the south, has schools, shops, cafes, hotels, a highly acclaimed theatre and a train station with regular services to Inverness, Glasgow and Edinburgh and the Caledonian Sleeper to London.

From Pitlochry‚ head north through the town on B8019 for approx 3.5 miles passing the turn off to Tummel Bridge. Just after you reach the Killiecrankie visitor centre, there is a turning to the right. Follow this road going under the bridge and onwards round the corner. Old Faskally Cottage is on the right.

Pitlochry, Kenmore

HIGHLAND Perthshire is widely acknowledged to be among the most scenic areas Scotland has to offer, acting as the gateway to the Cairngorm National Park, where development is strictly controlled.
Pitlochry lies in the shadow of 2759 feet Ben Vrackie and has long been a key halt on the north-south route linking the Lowlands with the Highlands, with her railway station dating back to the Victorian era.
Villas and the occasional extravagant tower dot the hillside and while it thrives as a year-round holiday destination encouraged by the Theatre in the Hills, The Etape Caledonia and The Enchanted Forest, a strong sense of community endures.
Like Pitlochry, the nearby town of Aberfeldy boasts a distillery and its own secondary school, along with an impressive recreation centre. Poet Robert Burns Birks o Aberfeldy helped put the town on the tourist map.
Kenmore, a village which can justifiably lay claim to be the prettiest in Perthshire, is tucked between the expanse of Loch Tay and the river which emerges from it en route to the North Sea.
Dunkeld is instantly identifiable thanks to its 1809 Thomas Telford designed, seven arch bridge linking with Birnam on the southern bank of the Tay, a medieval cathedral and the cluster of restored whitewashed cottages around The Cross and ornate Atholl Memorial Fountain.
Properties in both Dunkeld and Birnam, which were by-passed by the A9 in the 1970s, tend to generate immediate interest when they come onto the market.
Many of them date back to 18th Century reconstruction demanded after all but a handful of older homes were destroyed by a battle in 1689.
Set within a National Scenic Area, theres no shortage of trails to explore, with The Hermitage and its magnificent trees and folly just a few miles up-river.
The railway station on the outskirts of Birnam provides an alternative to road links with Perth and the Royal School of Dunkeld can trace its history back 450 years and more.
Both villages have a thriving cultural scene and a visit to the pioneering Community Orchard near the bridge is always fruitful in the autumn months.
Stanley, near the River Tay, is one of the Big Countys planned villages, dating back to the 1780s.
It was developed on the back of the nearby six-storey cotton mills which provided local employment for nearly 200 years before finally shutting down in 1989. These listed buildings have been transformed from industrial heritage into in-demand apartments.
Nearby villages like Luncarty, four miles north of the Fair City, have been mushrooming - with the commute to Perth promising to be made even easier with ongoing A9 improvements.
