Auchyle Farm is affectionately known as Scotland's smallest grouse moor.
Auchyle Farm lies in the shadow of the Menteith Hills, in some of Scotland’s most splendid scenery, with the Achray Forest and the Trossachs a short distance away and the magnificent Inchmahome Priory on the Lake of Menteith on the doorstep.
Affectionately known as Scotland’s smallest grouse moor, Auchyle Farm occupies 385 acres including moorland and several acres of supporting heather. Woodcock and grouse have been shot on the land and Red and Roe deer are also regular visitors.
Built circa. 1800, Auchyle Farm is a good example of an unaltered period farmhouse. The traditional 2-storey, 3-bay farmhouse is built of stone and slate and is grade C listed. Outwardly stout and strong to resist the weather, but modernised inside to reflect the needs and amenities of modern living, Auchyle Farm boasts a wonderful open fire as well as oil central heating.
The property features well proportioned rooms. On the ground floor the accommodation comprises a reception hall, a spacious lounge with an open fire, a dining room, a fitted kitchen, a utility room, a rear hall and a shower room. Upstairs, 3 bedrooms and another shower room can be found, plus a large floored attic on the upper level accessed via a fixed staircase.
Set on the east side of the village of Port of Menteith, Auchyle enjoys a prime position within The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Port of Menteith amenities include a primary school, a church, a hotel with an excellent restaurant and plenty of surrounding countryside ideal for outdoor pursuits. The city of Stirling is 14 miles away and offers additional shopping and leisure facilites. Edinburgh (51 miles) and Glasgow’s (41 miles) amenities and international airports are also easily accessible via the M9 / M80 motorway network.
