Standing in Chrissie Waller’s beautiful, light-filled kitchen it seems unbelievable that a century ago a horse would have spent its days powering a threshing machine in this same room.
Loch Tay glisters and gleams as sun, cloud and rain dance across it. There’s a well stocked bar and a full size snooker table in the living room. If I didn’t have to go back to work I could enjoy a very good afternoon.

Given that 1 Cidhmore has a huge 350sqm of internal space, I can only wonder at just how massive the original house must have been before it was divided into five properties.

The black and white photograph shows happy young farmers holding a bucket as a young calf dips her head in to guzzle what treats are in there.
I’ve picked a good day to visit Balbeuchley Steading. The sun is blazing and the afternoon heat has burned off the haze that had floated above the Tay all morning.
