Drumbauchly lies close to the village of Methven, in a popular location within easy commuting distance of Perth. Methven is a thriving community which has a number of local amenities including a post office, general store, pub, restaurants, a filling station and garage and playing field with sports facilities. Primary schooling is available in the village. Perth, around 6.5 miles to the east, has an excellent range of high street shops, supermarkets and professional services, and is in a pivotal position, with motorway and dual carriageway connections to all the major cities of central Scotland. Perth also has a railway station with services to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness. Edinburgh International Airport lies 48 miles to the south while Dundee Airport is only 29 miles east and has regular flights to London Stansted. In addition to secondary schools in Perth, there are well regarded private schools in the area including Glenalmond College, only 2.5 miles away, Ardvreck and Morrison's Academy, both in Crieff, and Strathallan, Kilgraston and Craigclowan Preparatory School. Recreational and cultural opportunities in and around Perth are excellent, with facilities including the Concert Hall, Perth Racecourse and Scone Palace, one of Scotland's finest stately homes. The Perthshire countryside offers an abundance of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts, such as hill walking and cycling. For country sports enthusiasts there is plenty of game shooting and stalking, and some of the finest salmon and trout fishing available on the county's rivers and lochs. There are numerous golf courses nearby including Murrayshall at Scone, Ferntower at Crieff, and the famous championship courses at Gleneagles, around 19 miles.


The land at Drumbauchly is located off a quiet country road, to the north west of the village. It comprises approximately 6.8 acres of ground, bordered to the south by College Road and to the north by the Carse Burn, and surrounded by lovely open views of the surrounding Perthshire countryside.

On the site is a derelict, traditional, stone built former mill with adjacent brick chimney. Planning permission has been granted for the conversion of the mill to create a three bedroomed detached house over two levels. Details are available via the selling agents or can be viewed on the Perth & Kinross planning portal under Application Number 16/00438/FLL.

The design, by The Denholm Partnership, incorporates the original stonework of the former mill, retaining the character and style of the building, complemented by an additional contemporary extension. The plan allows for use of modern finishes complemented by traditional materials, in sympathy with the surroundings.

The layout has incorporated living accommodation at the upper level, to take advantage of the local topography and surrounding views. It includes an entrance hall leading to a dining kitchen, sitting room, living room, shower room and utility room. At the lower level are three bedrooms complemented by a bathroom and shower room. Outside living space is provided by way of a roof terrace with a garden room.

The land extends to circa 6.8 acres in total, It comprises grazing and amenity land enclosed by fencing and hedgerow, interspersed with mature trees. There is a former water supply building adjacent to the mill.

This is a wonderful opportunity to create a bespoke prime residential property, with the benefit of adjoining amenity land, in a sought after location in rural Perthshire.
