A STUNNING house with its own loch and 65 acres of countryside has gone on the market – for the same price as a city centre flat.

Idyllic Loch Cottage, in Kirkmichael, Perth and Kinross, is on sale for £250,000.

The two-storey cottage has beautiful, uninterrupted, views of the nearby luscious woodlands which span almost 50 acres.

It has historically been used as a holiday let, but in recent years the house fell into disrepair and estate agents, Galbraith, said it requires substantial renovation.

The popular Cateran Trail, used for walking and mountain biking, passes within metres of the cottage, and the ski slopes of Glenshee are just a 30-minute drive away.

The River Ardle lies within the property’s acreage and potential buyers would have their own fishing rights for brown trout and salmon.

The ground floor has two front rooms, a kitchen and a larder, and on the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom.

A traditional stone byre is also attached to the cottage.

The advert for the property said: “Loch Cottage offers purchasers an ideal opportunity to create their ideal rural retreat.”

It said the closing date for offers on the property is Thursday.
