These two lovely properties (refs SDDL and SRRR) are surrounded by outstanding Perthshire countryside. Sitting within a quiet woodland setting, spacious Earnbank Cottage ref SRRR offers comfortable living, with lovely river walks within the grounds. Just along the road, Glenbuckie House ref SDDL is a wonderful detached family house set within beautiful extensive gardens bordered on one side by the River Lednock. It is very tastefully appointed for gracious easy living and boasts a wealth of modern conveniences yet retains the character of a large country home ideal for relaxing and entertaining. Both properties lie on the edge of the very popular village of Comrie, the gateway to the Highlands, which nestles in the Vale of Strathearn amidst spectacular scenery in an area of great natural beauty. Centrally located for exploring this wonderful region, there is much to enjoy with good walks from the doorstep. Auchingarrich Wildlife Park and historic Dunblane, or further afield the dramatic scenery of the Trossachs, are easily reached. The world famous Gleneagles is just 12 miles for excellent golf as well as numerous other courses in the vicinity including Comrie itself. Watersports can be enjoyed on Loch Earn and shooting is available by arrangement. The county town of Perth is only 25 miles with an extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities and the village provides a good selection of shops and eating places all within walking distance of the holiday homes. Shops, pubs and restaurant 20 yards.
