This stunning semi-detached Scottish cottage is superbly located in the beautiful Perthshire countryside, near the historic town of Blairgowrie. Patio doors to the rear of the cottage on to a decked area, providing the ideal place to relax with a drink, catch up on the day’s events and enjoy the panoramic view over the surrounding countryside. There is a cosy wood burner in the living room where you can relax with a book on cooler days; a perfect location to be enjoyed throughout the year.
It is situated on a working farm dating back to the 1800’s which started out as a dairy farm with the majority of fields being grass for grazing. As well as grassland, Rosemount grew cereals, potatoes and turnips. In the cottage is a very interesting book written by one of the people who used to live and work on the farm, which gives you a real insight into farming at Rosemount at the turn of the century. Although Blairgowrie, the town where the farm is situated, has been known as the ’Berry Toon’ for many years, Rosemount Farm did not actually begin to grow soft fruit until the early 2000’s.
This is the perfect spot for friends or families seeking quality time together in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland. From your front door you can enjoy leisurely walks or cycle rides on quiet country roads and paths and there are many and varied activities available in the area. Good golf is in abundance in the town and locally including Rosemount and Lansdowne courses, and Gleneagles, St Andrews and Carnoustie are within an hour’s drive. You can visit Glamis Castle, home of the late Queen Mother, with its fascinating history, and Scone Palace, home to the Stone of Destiny and also the base for Perth Racecourse. Slightly further afield are the bustling towns of Pitlochry and Aberfeldy. The area is also ideal for those who like country sports, with deer stalking, and pheasant and grouse shooting all readily available locally. Trout and salmon fishing on the nearby rivers and lochs are also available (licence required). Blairgowrie is well worth a visit with a great variety of shops, eating places and cafes. It is one of the largest towns in Perthshire, on the banks of River Ericht where you can take scenic walks. The Cateran Trail starts from the town and follows around the historic drove roads used by cattle rustlers. Glenshee, Scotland’s largest skiing area, caters for sports activities all year round and is within 25 miles. The cities of Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen and Edinburgh are all within easy driving distance.
