Property Round-Up: Encouraging Pictures

As we gear up for the traditional prime Spring selling period, the latest statistics suggest "an encouraging picture" for the Scottish property market. And there are plenty more pictures in our property round-up of the week!

Escape to River Cottage

A cottage in a beautiful spot by the side of a river is many people's idea of the ideal place to get away from it all.' Enjoying a delightful scenic setting close to the River Earn, River Cottage is a charming home near Auchterarder and is new to the market this week. While it could of course be a perfect holiday home to escape to for a few weeks in the year, it is conveniently located within commutable distance of Perth, Dundee and Edinburgh meaning you could escape to River Cottage every day

Old School Living Space

Located in the picturesque burgh of Strathdon on the outskirts of Bellabeg village, Old Schoolhouse is a traditional cottage attached to what was formerly the Old Forbestown Female Public school. It's the former classroom that is of particular note, coming complete with tall gothic wood-mullioned windows, traditional wood flooring and high ceiling beams. Double height and triple aspect, it provides a fantastic living space which could be put to excellent use as a spacious lounge, an artist's studio, a hobby room or a space for entertaining.
