Glenmarkie Lodge, by Blairgowrie

Situated in its own private Glen, with views down towards Glenisla, Glenmarkie is a quintessential shooting lodge. The beautiful Glenisla Forest provides the property with considerable shelter and creates a stunning backdrop with the moors and mountains of the Cairngorms National Park rising behind.

Glenisla is a picturesque valley offering a wide range of leisure opportunities including three golf courses at Alyth and a championship course at Rosemount. The prestigious courses at Carnoustie, St Andrews and Gleneagles are all within easy reach. Low and high ground shooting and salmon and sea trout fishing are all available nearby as well as skiing in Glenshee during the winter months.

The lodge itself is late Victorian and has been sympathetically restored over the last eight years to become one of the finest properties of its type. Elegant and spacious reception rooms overlook the grounds and a loch stocked with trout for fishing. There is a modern kitchen, stylish dining room and swimming pool and sauna on the ground floor and upstairs there are eight bedrooms, all with bathrooms.

A gravelled courtyard with two garages is attached to the house and kennels, workshops and stores are all located nearby as well as a wooden stable block. There is a grass tennis court and croquet lawn and a partially enclosed vegetable garden. The land, which comprises of paddocks and pine, spruce and birch extends to approximately 163 acres.

Glenmarkie Lodge is offered on the market by Savills at an asking price in excess of £1,250,000. For more information please call +44 (0) 1356 628628.
