Outstanding sporting estate in Scotland

The Stenton Estate is a classic all-round estate with 305 acres, a wonderful Victorian property and five further cottages all set in some of the most attractive countryside in Scotland. The main property is a stunning Victorian mansion with the original Laird’s house forming the family rooms. The property has been refurbished with flair and imagination.

Originally dating from the 18th century, the house has a magnificent south facing aspect. Built of stone under a slate roof the house was then altered and added to in Victorian times including the addition of a dowager house. The heart of the property is the spacious kitchen/breakfast room with its conservatory and small sitting room, but there are impressive reception rooms off the main hall including a stunning double dining room and drawing room with stunning views.

There is also an extremely private principal bedroom suite which has two dressing rooms and two en suite bathrooms. In addition to six further bedrooms and four further bathrooms there are a number of secondary bedrooms which could be adapted to a self-contained flat in the attic.

The gardens and grounds cover six acres and have been carefully laid out to give both interest and privacy with formal gardens to the east and impressive lawns sweeping down to the woodland and the River Tay. There are greenhouses and storage as well as a hard tennis court and a private arboretum. The land also includes an ancient Pictish fort on a rocky outcrop called Kemp’s Hold which has been scheduled as an ancient monument.

Stenton also offers a superb and comprehensive range of sport including a beat on the productive middle section of the River Tay which has exclusive double bank fishing for half a mile during the season, as well as trout fishing and duck flighting on Stenton Loch; the estate has also been developed as a testing pheasant shoot and includes resident populations of roe and fallow deer.

The farming land on the estate extends to over 200 acres and provides the basis for a useful livestock enterprise. There are five cottages attached to the estate, some of which are let and some vacant; one is currently inhabited by the gamekeeper.

The estate lies 15 miles outside the county town of Perth and 50 miles south of Edinburgh airport and Dunkeld is just a few miles west and has a good range of local amenities. Local sporting opportunities are also fantastic with further shooting, stalking and fishing to be found nearby.
