Balvarran Mill Cottage,
Balvarran Mill Cottage in Perthshire, a cottage for wildlife not nightlife, stands on its own, very peacefully in lovely countryside, a short drive off the quiet A924 country road that winds its way over the moorland, past sheep and heather, from Pitlochry on the A9 (11 miles) to Kirkmichael (1 mile) and then to Blairgowrie (15 miles) in central Scotland.
An attractive, very old stone cottage with part of the ancient mill barn (now empty) at its side, its grass garden is bordered by the River Ardle just yards from the front door, and here tenants (only) can enjoy a week or more's free fishing on the 1 mile private beat.
Pitlochry to the west (easy access to Inverness, the Moray Firth, and the West Coast) has shops and all facilities; Kirkmichael nearby has a pub, a good restaurant, a PO/General Store, a riding-centre and excellent walks - while to the north and east there are good road connections to Braemar and stunning Royal Deeside (Balmoral and other Castles), as well as to the Angus Glens and sandy coast.
Heating is by oil-central heating included, open-fires (logs included) and electricity. Bed-linen and towels are included. Pets are welcome. Telephone for incoming calls.Read the Visitors' Book
