However, in recent years the loch has not been utilised, with the southern end now showing a build-up of silt. Presently the current area covered in water is approximately 0.5 acres. This has provided a number of reed beds which are favoured by the local wildlife. The pond offers purchasers the opportunity to expand and further develop this bio-diverse space, or alternatively steps could be taken to recover the pond for fishing. At the southern end of the pond there is a boathouse, which although in need of some refurbishment, presents an opportunity to be developed, subject to obtaining any necessary permissions. The pond is bound by a number of mature and semi-mature trees which affords a great deal of privacy.ACCESSAt present there is pedestrian access only to the pond, with a formal right of access through the woodland to the rear of Blebo House.DIRECTIONSFrom Cupar take the B940 signposted Pitscottie and turning left signposted Kemback.

Follow the path through the wood and the pond will become visible on your right.POST CODEKY15 5TZWHAT3WORDSTo find this property location to within 3 metres, download and use What3Words and enter the following 3 words:SAUCEPAN,CROAKING.FISTS
