LOT 1 - For full details please request or download the brochure.
Introduction to Drumcroy
Drumcroy provides purchasers with a rare opportunity to acquire a development site in a magnificent Highland Perthshire setting enjoying views across the Strathtay Valley, all within approximately 90 minutes’ drive of both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Drumcroy previously formed part of the neighbouring farm and came under the current proprietor’s ownership in 2015. Following an initial amendment to the existing planning permission at that time, and a further revision last year in light of the increasing interest in the domestic holiday/leisure market, the density and variety of lodge has been increased, alongside the introduction of a large and flexible accommodation complex capable of catering for larger groups, smaller parties or couples as required.
Extending to approximately 4.05 Ha (10.02 acres), the Drumcroy development site lies immediately to the south of the A827 public road, which is the main access route into Aberfeldy.
Extending to approximately 0.85 Hectares (2.11 acres) Lot 1 includes the Manager’s house with integral 2 bedroom lodge and 3 self-contained detached 1 bedroom lodges. The proposed Manager’s house is to be located at the top of the lot and immediately to the north east of the existing Drumcroy holiday lodges, all of which sold in quick succession last year and will act as a backdrop to the west, while the hillside continues rising to the south and will provide an additional landscape area to the rear for potential exclusive use with the Manager’s accommodation.
We understand that water and electricity supplies would be easily accessed from the existing Drumcroy Lodge site and facilitate an initial phase of development to erect the Manager’s house.
The adjacent existing lodges also continue to be managed by the sellers under the successful Drumcroy Holiday Lodges banner, and it is intended that the management of these lodges could be transferred to the purchaser of Lot 1 or indeed the purchaser of the whole site, generating an immediate and valuable income stream, further details of which may be provided on request.
The Manager’s house will be laid out over two storeys and extend to approximately 324.3 m2 while the integral lodge will be single storey and extend to approximately 55.2 m2
Full details of the relevant planning permissions and supporting documentation are available through Perth and Kinross Council’s planning department web portal https://www.pkc.gov.uk/planning or, via a secure data room managed by the sellers solicitors, access to which will be granted following the provision of some salient information by a prospective purchaser(s) to the selling agents.
As the Manager's accommodation could be considered a permanent dwelling and occupied as a residential property, a contribution towards education and infrastructure was levied equating to £6,460, which has already been paid in full by the current owner.
However, condition no.4 of the current planning permission does specify that the new holiday lodges shall be used solely for holiday accommodation and not be occupied as the sole or main residence of any occupant.
Strictly by appointment through the Selling Agent.
A closing date may be fixed for individual lots or indeed the entire site. Therefore, prospective purchasers are advised to register their interest with the Selling
Agents through their solicitors. Prospective purchasers should note that unless their interest in the property is registered, no guarantee can be given that notice of a closing date will be advised and consequently the property may be sold without notice.
