Rural bliss near Dunkeld

A detached farmhouse not far from Dunkeld needs a bit of work but has potential to become a stunning rural retreat.

Fungarth Farmhouse is a traditional countryside property in one of the most sought after areas of Perthshire with the opportunity to put your stamp on it.

Just 1.5 miles from Dunkeld, Fungarth occupies an idyllic situation with views across farmland and Dunkeld and Birnam Golf Course towards the Loch of the Lowes nature reserve – famous for its visiting ospreys.

The main three-bedroom house, while needing some modernisation, is a good size and includes a kitchen, pantry, sitting room, sun room and porch on the ground floor with the bedrooms, bathroom and linen cupboard on the first floor. The property also includes a ground floor annexe  containing a shower room, sitting room/bedroom and boiler room.

Outside there’s a detached timber clad garage and a stone-built former pump house with slate roof.

“In all, Fungarth is an extremely attractive property and is superbly located to benefit not just from the great views but from easy access to the villages of Dunkeld and Birnam and the A9 as well as the nearby train station at Dunkeld,” said Rebecca Boswell, senior rural surveyor with selling agents Bidwells.

“It would make a fantastic country residence in the hamlet of Fungarth which provides easy access to many outdoor pursuits and the great choice of independent and specialist shops and restaurants in Dunkeld and Birnam.”


Fungarth Farmhouse is on sale with Bidwells for offers over £310,000.
