Full description


For full details please request a copy of the brochure.

Pleasance Farm is located on the south side of the country town of Coupar Angus in the famed Vale of Strathmore, about half way between Perth and Forfar. The Sidlaw Hills lie to the south and the Grampian Hills to the north. For a relatively small town, Coupar Angus is well serviced. It has a supermarket, post office, banking and legal services, a primary school, medical centre and a large play park. The nearest larger town is Blairgowrie, only 4 miles away, which has a wider range of services with cottage hospital, secondary
schooling and championship golf course at Rosemount.

Perthshire is well-placed to access all parts of Scotland and it is renowned as an attractive place to live and work. The cities of Perth and Dundee and their surrounding areas are rich in history and culture and they both offer a wide range of shops,
amenities and services, including a choice of supermarkets, retail and industrial parks, museums, music and theatre venues and cinemas.

Sporting and outdoor opportunities abound with local sports clubs and leisure facilities, golf, curling, cycling, adventurous and equestrian activities and country pursuits such as fishing, shooting and stalking.

There are a number of private schools within 25 miles including Craigclowan, Strathallan, Kilgraston, Glenalmond and Dundee High School.

The A94 from Coupar Angus links eastwards to the A90 at Forfar providing easy access north to Aberdeen and westwards to the M90 and A9 at Perth. There are railway stations in Perth and Dundee; the nearest major airport is on the west side of Edinburgh with a smaller one closer in
Dundee serving London City.

There is a good selection of agricultural contractors and suppliers in the district, including East of Scotland Farmers in Coupar Angus and Earnvale Tractors at Balbeggie, and the nearest livestock auction mart is United Auctions, Stirling.
