Productive livestock unit with a range of farm buildings in the ‘Big Tree Country’

Extending to about 149.53ac is Duallin Farm, Ben Lawers, Aberfeldy, Perthshire. It includes a traditional farmhouse, a contemporary house and a range of farm buildings.

Duallin Farm is located about six miles from the village of Kenmore, which plays host to an array of amenities for everyday needs.

Killin is around 10 miles away, while Aberfeldy is 12 miles and Perth is 43 miles.

Perthshire, the land known as ‘Big Tree Country’, is well-served by agricultural merchants and dealers.

It has a successful local machinery rink available to provide additional resources as and when required. There are two livestock markets in Stirling and a market in Forfar.

Mixed land

The land, which extends 149.53ac, is set out with 12 good-sized enclosures; all are serviced by water from burns and are down to grass.

The land is classified principally as Grade 4(2) and 5(3) by the James Hutton Institute, with the fields having a sloping southerly aspect.

They are contained within a ring-blocked unit intersected by the public road A827.

Duallin Farm holds a Heritable Right to graze up to 300 sheep on the East Ben Lawers section of the National Trust for Scotland’s (NTS’s) Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve.

The land over which the grazing rights are held is situated immediately to the north of the farm. The grazing is currently shared with one other active grazier.

The NTS land is designated as a site of special scientific interest. The grazing rights are available to purchase separately.

Duallin Farm has a number of buildings all lying immediately to the west of the farmhouse and sitting around a good-sized yard to the south.

The farm buildings comprise:

  • Two cattle courts;
  • A tractor shed with a lean-to;
  • An implement store; and
  • A general purpose shed.

Duallin houses

Duallin farmhouse is a traditional, three-storey house. The lower ground floor comprises: a family room; a shower room; and a store room.

The ground floor includes: a utility room with a WC; a dining kitchen; a sitting room; and two bedrooms.

The first floor comprises: a bedroom with a nursery room off; three further bedrooms; and a shower room.

The separate Duallin Croft is a contemporary house recently completed and finished to a very high standard and is currently run as a successful Bed & Breakfast.

The Croft has six bedrooms (three en-suite) and an attractive kitchen-dining-room-sitting-room, with views over the loch.

Emma Chalmers, partner with Galbraith, said: “The new home offers the potential to continue or expand the bed-and-breakfast business.

“In addition, planning permission has been granted for the construction of three holiday chalets, offering great potential for the future.

The lifestyle on offer at Duallin is wonderful, in an exceptionally pretty and popular part of Highland Perthshire. The opportunity to continue and further expand the tourism business is significant and this would provide an additional revenue stream for the purchasers.

Duallin Farm is for sale whole. The guide price is for offers over £975,000.
