Closest in terms of local services and amenities is the Royal Burgh of Newburgh, which is just a five minute drive from the house and is situated on the southern shores of the Firth of Tay. Newburgh was granted its royal charter by Alexander the Third in 1266 and its picturesque centre is a conservation area. The thriving community provides an excellent range of local facilities and amenities including a doctors surgery, vet, post office, bank, garage, primary school, shops, pubs and cafes together with beautiful walks along the waterfront and in the park and surrounding hills.Lindores is situated close to the Fife/Perthshire border at almost the mid-point between Cupar and Perth, which between them offer a superb range of shops, facilities and services.

Edinburgh airport is about one hour to the south whilst the regional airport at Dundee offers a good selection of short haul flights.DESCRIPTION The original part of the house was built in 1907 as the station house for Lindores Railway Station. The station ceased to exist when this section of the railway line closed in 1951 and since then the house has been extended at various times including to the east side where a single storey addition was added in the 1980s. The house has been completely modernised in more recent years and now offers a comfortable energy efficient detached two storey house, which benefits from double glazed windows and a newly installed air source heat pump. The air source heat pump was installed in February 2022 and qualifies for a renewable heating incentive. This is paid quarterly for 7 years, starting at the date of installation and will continue to be paid to the new owners of Station House.
