A rare opportunity has arisen to acquire a very impressive Victorian villa in the heart of rural Perthshire. Strathardle Lodge is being sold with the benefit of 5 letting rooms and substantial owners’ accommodation. The premises are fully licensed giving the new owners the opportunity to take the business in a number of directions; from reopening the bar and restaurant to non-residents or focussing on the multiple outdoor activities and pursuits that are available on the doorstep. Alternatively, they could partner with the adjacent Cake School that runs residential courses throughout the year, who need rooms for their guests to stay. There are multiple opportunities available for this lifestyle business and early viewing is highly recommended to appreciate what is on offer.
Strathardle Lodge occupies a prominent road side position on the edge of the charming and picturesque village of Kirkmichael in the heart of rural Perthshire at the foot hills of the Cairngorms National Park. With a thriving local community Kirkmichael has the benefit of a community run village shop, a popular bar and restaurant and village hall. In addition, it’s also hosts the Strathardle Highland Gathering in August each year.
Blairgowrie (13 miles) has supermarkets, independent shops, and restaurants, professional services, and medical centres. Pitlochry (12 miles) has the much loved Festival Theatre and a mainline railway station with direct links to London and Inverness. For a more comprehensive selection of shops and professional services, Perth is 29 miles south. Dundee Airport provides flights to London, while Edinburgh Airport operates a wide range of domestic and international flights.
Strathardle Lodge is surrounded by some of Scotland’s most beautiful scenery. There is enormous scope for walking and cycling locally and the 65 mile long ever popular Cateran Trail runs through Kirkmichael. There is salmon fishing on the rivers, Ericht, Ardle, Blackwater, and Tay, with shooting and stalking readily available on nearby estates. Strathardle Lodge benefits from its own fishing rights along a stretch of 100m of the rive Ardle. Golfers can enjoy the championship courses at Blairgowrie and the 18 hole course at Pitlochory as well as courses at Alyth and Glenisla to name a few. Both the ski centre at Glenshee and the Cairngorm National Park are only a few miles north.
