*Closing Date set Wednesday 16th June at 12noon* A charming and historic cottage by Dunkeld
Niel Gow Cottage is a B Listed traditional stone and slate cottage believed to date from the early 1700s. Originally it was two semi-detached thatched cottages and over the years it has been sympathetically extended and modernised. A plaque fixed to the exterior of the house is in memory of Niel Gow, the celebrated Scottish fiddler who lived at the cottage from 1727 1807. His son and grandson were also brilliant fiddlers and continued living at the cottage after he died. The 17th annual Niel Gow Festival will take place in Dunkeld and Birnam in March 2022.
The main entrance to the cottage is via a bright porch which opens to a hallway running the length of the property. The main rooms in the house all face south and overlook the garden. At the west end of the house a dining room with fireplace is connected to the sitting room with double doors. The two rooms make a lovely space for entertaining. The sitting room also has a fireplace and French windows opening to the garden. The kitchen has a two oven AGA and there is space for a small dining table. At the east end of the house the principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom and walk in wardrobe. Two further bedrooms share a shower room. In addition there is a small single bedroom which would make an ideal office and has a door to the garden.
Niel Gow Cottage comes with about 0.47 acres of which 0.44 acres is the garden laid out to the front of the house and 0.03 acres is situated on the north side of the property and provides space to park opposite the main entrance door. The garden is elevated, south facing and private. It is currently mainly down to lawn enclosed by a beech hedge but there is plenty of space to create herbaceous borders and plant a vegetable garden. There is also a garden shed.

I love the fact that the cottage is just a footpath away from two glorious rivers, The Hermitage woods and a coffee in Dunkeld.Stephanie Clarke
