Traditional steading in an elevated setting with self contained annexe and building plot


Keltneyburn is a small community around the banks of the Keltney Burn, amidst very picturesque scenery.

Aberfeldy is the nearest main centre with all essential services to hand, including a new medical centre and a cottage hospital; banking, veterinary, optical and dental practices; a varied selection of quality shops, and schooling at the well regarded Breadalbane Academy which provides nursery to sixth year secondary education. Pitlochry, about 22 miles away, is home to the famous Festival Theatre and has a mainline railway station. The pleasant county town of Perth is 37 miles to the south.

The area provides ready access to a wide range of recreational pursuits including golf on a number of nine and 18 hole courses, water sports on lochs and rivers, climbing and walking, with several munros nearby. The Aberfeldy Recreation Centre has a 25m swimming pool and squash courts amongst its facilities. There are also many clubs and organisations catering for an extensive range of interests.

The main attraction of the area, however, is the beautiful scenery, with some of the most famous beauty spots in Scotland here, 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. Just beyond the property a Special Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI) begins, which includes the Keltneyburn Wildlife Reserve of Balachroich Meadow.


The Steading is a fantastic property which was converted into residential use in 1973. In more recent years the current owners have made some excellent alterations to the accommodation to create extra bedroom and bathroom space. The main house is currently arranged with four bedrooms and has a one bedroom self contained annexe (The Knock) at the east end of the house. The property is extremely well set up for family living, with a holiday letting business on the side (The Knock) or for holiday lettings in both properties with space for expansion on the plot. The elevated rural setting provides outstanding views over open countryside to the hills beyond. The mature grounds surrounding The Steading include extensive gardens, a courtyard, chipped driveway with parking for several vehicles, a double carport and a log / garden store.

The front door to The Steading is partially glazed and opens up into the reception hallway.

The sitting room has a vaulted ceiling, exposed stone walls and a large log burning stove. The generous windows take full advantage of the beautiful southerly views. A French door opens to the courtyard and front garden. The dining room is open plan to the sitting room. It has an oak floor. A flight of stairs leads up to the games room / study which has a Velux window and a door out to the rear garden.

The kitchen has a large window to the south east, solid oak base and wall mounted units and oak block worktops. The breakfast bar also houses a 1½ bowl sink with mixer tap. There are tiled splashbacks, concealed lighting and a slate floor. Integrated appliances include a double oven, microwave, ceramic hob and a large free standing fridge freezer. The Rayburn stove is for aesthetics but could easily be re-commisioned for use.

A separate utility / laundry room also has base units with oak block worktops, and inset Belfast style sink, plumbing for a washing machine, floor mounted oil fired boiler and hot water tank. There is ample space for larger appliances, and storage space for coats and boots.

The first bedroom is situated just off the passageway from the hall. It has a store in one corner and is close to the shower room situated just off the hallway. The second bedroom on the ground floor has its own en suite shower room and views out to the south.

There are a further two bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with separate shower and bath. The fourth bedroom has its own bathroom which is situated just off the landing.
