Situated on the south-eastern fringes of the village of Kirkmichael, Tarka enjoys an attractive rural setting. Perthshire is renowned for its picturesque landscapes and there are a wealth of opportunities for outdoor pursuit enthusiasts with a number of trails for walking and mountain biking. Shooting, fishing and stalking can all be taken locally and the ski slopes of Glenshee are only a 30 minute drive away. Kirkmichael itself provides a village store and Post Office as well as a petrol station, church, primary school and hotels. Tarka is situated equidistant between the towns of Pitlochry and Blairgowrie. Both Pitlochry and Blairgowrie offer secondary schooling and provide an excellent range of day-to-day amenities including banks, hotels, restaurants, library, health care and individual specialist retailers. The cities of Perth and Dundee lie to the south and south-east respectively and offer a wide range of local and national retailers as well as train stations and an extensive range of city amenities.

Sitting within 0.6 acres, Tarka is a Norwegian log cabin sitting under a turf roof. The property was commissioned by the film writer and director Charles Crichton renowned for the ever popular Ealing comedies and more recently for "A fish called Wanda". Very much the heart of the house is the open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, this bright spacious room is ideal for modern family living with large patio doors and windows making the most of the stunning scenery surrounding the cabin. A door in the kitchen area leads to the utility room which with its wall and base units and door to the garden provides a useful space to kick off those muddy boots after a day out enjoying Perthshire countryside. There are two double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes as well as a single bedroom currently used as a study, a family room to the east which offers options to be used as an additional bedroom or family room. Within the grounds of Tarka there is a traditional stone built building which is currently utilised as a wash house and store, however subject to gaining the necessary planning consents this building may offer development potential into additional accommodation.

The garden at Tarka is predominantly down to lawn with a range of mature trees, shrubs and bushes, there is a sizeable gravelled area providing ample parking.
