Ochil is a delightful house within an exceptional steading development lying a short distance to the east of the small town of Newburgh in Fife. Quietly positioned within the attractive courtyard, the house faces south-west and offers charming accommodation of a high quality. Within comfortable walking distance of the town, Newburgh is becoming known as a centre for creative arts and offers an excellent range of local facilities and amenities as well as a thriving small close-knit “village” community. Standing virtually mid-way between Perth and Cupar which between them offer a comprehensive range of shops, services and facilities, the ancient and historic university town of St. Andrews which is no more than a half hour drive to the east. The main M90 motorway network runs close by to the west and offers speedy access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen. The resurgent city of Dundee is no more than a twenty minute drive to the north-east.
The Parkhill development occupies a charming elevated position on the southern banks of the River Tay and is surrounded by some particularly fine countryside. With a lovely mix of farmland, hill and river the result is an excellent choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling, riding, sailing and golf all readily available. Golfers are especially well catered for with Newburgh affording rapid access to the likes of St. Andrews and Ladybank in Fife as well as Gleneagles to the west. The Old Course at St. Andrews and the Championship Course at Carnoustie both regularly host the British Open. In terms of days out the beautiful hills of highland Perthshire and pretty Angus glens are well within striking distance, and for skiers Glenshee is just over an hour to the north. There are excellent sandy beaches at St. Andrews, Elie and Tentsmuir with the pretty fishing villages of Fife’s East Neuk about a forty minute drive to the south-east.
State primary and secondary schooling is available locally with independent schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews as well as a number of highly rated schools in and around Perth including Glenalmond, Strathallan and Kilgraston. There are railway stations in Perth, Ladybank and Cupar with Edinburgh airport about one hour to the south. The regional airport at Dundee offers a good selection of short haul flights.
