    About this property

    • Bardmony House was originally a staging post for monks and the earliest parts of the house date from the 15th century. In 1830, an attractive neo-classical Georgian house front facade was added.

      The Georgian part of the house has a lovely hallway with a beautiful drawing room off. There are two further reception rooms off the front hall with a kitchen, playroom and stores off the back hall.

      In 1991 the house was extended to the west to create accommodation for a relative. The new wing also has a lovely drawing room and dining room with a kitchen, study and cloakroom behind. This wing is linked to the main house but can be divided off by locking doors.

      The 9 bedrooms can be used all together for a house party or split with 5 bedrooms, a dressing room and 5 bathrooms in the main house and 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in the wing.

      To the east of the house, with a secondary access off a farm lane, is a gardeners cottage, a range of outbuildings and a walled garden.

    Local information

    • Bardmony House has a private setting in 5.9 acres of its own grounds on the edge of the Vale of Strathmore, the fertile plain that lies between the Grampian Mountains and the Sidlaw Hills, on the county border between Perthshire and Angus.
    • The property is well placed for modern communications. The A94 connects Perth to Forfar and the main Dundee to Aberdeen road (A90). Perth is only 22 miles away and has a motorway connection to Edinburgh. Dundee Airport has services to London City Airport, Birmingham and Belfast and a railway station on the main east coast line.
    • Alyth has good local facilities including a golf course which is just along from the house. Blairgowrie and Forfar provide a more extensive range of shops and professional services while the larger towns of Perth and Dundee are within easy reach. There are a number of public schools in the area including Glenalmond, Strathallan, Kilgraston (girls), Dundee High School and St Leonards. Prep schools include Craigclowan, Ardvreck and St Leonards-New Park.
    • The recreational opportunities in the area are excellent. There is grouse shooting and stalking on nearby estates and fishing on the rivers Tay, Isla and Ericht. There are a number of good pheasant shoots nearby. The northernmost fox hunt in Britain is just over the Firth of Tay in Fife. Both national hunt racing and polo take place at Scone on the near side of Perth. There is a golf course near the house and Carnoustie, St Andrews, Rosemount and Gleneagles are all within easy reach.
