Pitlochry is a popular Victorian spa town with a range of individual shops. There are three banks, a post office, a supermarket, a petrol station, new medical centre, two dentists and a well-respected High School. Pitlochry also has a Festival Theatre, a salmon fish ladder, two distilleries and several popular hotels and restaurants.

Balarchibald Steading is within easy driving distance of some of Scotland's best private schools including Craigclowan, Strathallan, Kilgraston, Glenalmond, Ardvreck and Morrison's
Academy. The A9 is about 2.5 miles away and Pitlochry train station has regular direct services to Inverness, Edinburgh, Glasgow and a London sleeper service.

The River Tay is well known amongst salmon fishermen and there is trout fishing in local lochs. Stalking and pheasant or grouse shooting are available on nearby estates. In addition to rafting and canoeing on the Grandtully rapids, a variety of watersports take place on Lochs Tay, Earn, Rannoch and Tummel, and for golfers there are local courses at Strathtay, Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Pitlochry and Taymouth Castle.

The countryside surrounding Ballechin has some of the most famous beauty spots in Scotland including Glen Lyon, The Falls of Dochart, Kenmore on Loch Tay, The Queen's View at Loch Tummel, the Pass of Killiecrankie, Schiehallion and Ben Lawers. Ben-Y-Vrackie and Schiehallion are amongst several nearby hills popular with hill walkers.


Balarchibald Steading dates from the 1800s and is a traditional barn which was totally renovated and extended in 2003. The property retains many typical vernacular features. It is partly of traditional stone construction with stone clad walls to the extension and has double glazed timber windows and a pitched slated roof. Internally there are modern comforts for everyday
living with good quality fixtures and fittings and a bespoke hand crafted kitchen including a four oven Aga.

An outstanding feature of the property is its elevated position with panoramic south facing views over open countryside, hills and the River Tay.

Square Footage: 3,709 sq ft
