End-Terraced original Croft House with Byre attached on prime elevated plot, in peaceful rural setting, with panoramic views. Has potential to re-develop and would make an ideal family home or holiday home given its proximity to surrounding villages and local attractions. Early viewing very highly recommended.



Tarskavaig is an end-terraced original Croft House with a Byre attached, sitting on a prime elevated plot in the popular hamlet of Camserney enjoying panoramic countryside views across surrounding woodland.  Set in some of Scotland’s finest scenery, this former crofting township is situated on the eastern end of the Appin of Dull,  only 3 miles west of Aberfeldy which offers an array of shops, Birks art deco cinema, leisure, medical and educational facilities and is close to Castle Menzies, Glen Lyon, and Kenmore.  There are numerous woodland walks and a wealth of outdoor activities including hill-walking, golf, riding and water sports.  The A9 close by at Ballinluig, provides easy access to the motorway network and all major cities in the central belt and north, including Pitlochry with its tourist shopping and the renowned Festival Theatre, and the ski slopes of Glenshee which are within pleasant driving distance.


This beautifully appointed stone-built property has the character and charm of an earlier era and offers the potential for re-development to make a most lovely family home in a peaceful rural setting, with a modest wrap-around garden.  Tarskavaig, would also make an ideal holiday home given its proximity to the surrounding villages and local attractions including; Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery, Highland Chocolatier and The Scottish Crannog Centre to name a few.  The current accommodation comprises a hall with original parquet flooring, a delightful sitting room with original oak beamed ceiling, splendid stone walls and deep silled window enjoying views to front.  The central solid-fuel fireplace with recess either side, makes a lovely focal point to the room and there is space for furniture and a serving hatch to the kitchen.  The dated kitchen is fitted with a mixed range of wall and base units, a shelved larder and free-standing electric cooker, and has a deep-silled picture window overlooking the rear garden which has a wooded backdrop.  Also, to the ground floor a spacious double bedroom with an original oak beamed ceiling and fully-tiled en-suite shower room with mirror, dimplex heater and non-slip flooring. As a note the Byre is situated to the other side of the bedroom wall, which could be a consideration for the potential layout of this property, subject to the relevant planning permission being obtained.  Steep stairs lead to a spacious and light landing with room for furniture, loft access and walk-in shelved laundry cupboard, and lovely elevated views to the rear.  There are two enormous double bedrooms both enjoying splendid views to front and have ample room for furniture. Central to the landing is a basic bathroom with coloured suite including a bath and built-in vanity unit, and electric fire.  Electric heating is installed, all windows are secondary double glazed and the property is in liveable condition.    Home Report valuation £187,000.


To the front of Tarskavaig is a paved path with sun-trap patio to the side and chipped slate rockery and planted flower bed.  An unmade road passes in front of the property and the garden further extends to the other side with established trees and shrubs.  There is a modest strip of garden that wraps around the front of the property and around the Byre to the rear, which is laid to lawn with a perimeter stone wall and wooded backdrop.  The Byre itself has power, a tin roof and provides useful storage and the potential to extend the property subject to the relevant planning permission being obtained.  The mature garden ground again extends over the road to the woodland beyond and provides parking for several cars.    



It is proposed to include all fitted floor coverings, carpets, curtains, blinds and light fittings in the sale, together with the appliances as stated in the schedule.
