“Quality of Life” property for sale Pitlochry

From the first gaze through the window, each morning, I feel uplifted and energised by the sheer beauty I see. A nip into the garden to peg out the overnight wash fills my ears with birdsong and my head with that beautiful northern light for which Scotland is so famous. The scenery in every direction is stunning and the craziness that seems to be gripping the world seems just something you see on TV. Here, there is balance and serenity. Could you really offer anything of greater value to your family?

The town is small, well-kept and characterful with small independent shops and characterful cafes, a fabulous theatre, golf course, stunning countryside, great sporting and cultural facilities. A friendly buzz permeates and folk have time to stop and chat.

 

Pitlochry (1)

I run a busy business and stress can be relentless, at times. However, it only takes a walk with the dogs through any of the miles upon mile of woodland that surrounds us in every direction and a grounded peace of mind returns. A stint of pottering in my beautiful garden has the same restorative effect. You only need to observe nature getting it right time and time again to remember that there IS order in the world.

Transport Links from Pitlochry

When looking at Property for Sale Pitlochry, or any rural location, transport links to the “rest of the world” are of vital importance. Pitlochry strikes high scores in this arena because we’re 1/2 a mile off the A9, the main north-south arterial road in Scotland and rail services, from Pitlochry station, include one direct train to London daily and services to Edinburgh, Inverness and Glasgow. Edinburgh and Inverness airports are 90 minutes away and Glasgow just a little further.

Below, we have included a brief idea of the quality of life offered by a home in Pitlochry

Pitlochry Festival Theatre

Pitlochry Festival Theatre is a magnificent facility set in stunning surroundings. Set along the river amidst leafy woodland, the theatre looks up towards the splendid Ben Vrackie mountain and the hillside setting of Pitlochry.  throughout the Summer season, a fabulous cast of actors perform, play, sing and dance through a cyclical repertoire of 6  plays and a musical each week.

Performance standards are exceptionally high, as reviews will attest. This excellent Theatre experience may be supplemented by the experience of visiting the facility, itself. Furthermore, visitors may enjoy stunning views of Pitlochry’s hillside canvas, with an endearing mix of greenery and stone stretching up to the slopes of Craigower Hill and Ben Vrackie Mountain.
