Forming part of a pretty farm conversion in rural Perthshire, Croftgarrow Steading was converted from an ancient stone building into a beautiful, contemporary home in 2008. Sitting in a lovely quiet spot, just a mile west of the village of Fortingall, Croftgarrow Steading is a large two-bedroom property sleeping 4, all on one level and stands in large grounds with uninterrupted views to the surrounding valleys and hills.

The house consists of one double and one twin bedroom, each with a large luxurious bathroom including double shower, double-ended bath, heated mirror and towel rail.

The rest of the property is then taken up with the main living space: a vast open-plan area containing the farmhouse kitchen, dining space and plenty of seating areas. A large wood burning stove forms the centre piece to this space and double glass doors to the east and south lead out to the private garden with a hot tub, via a lovely furnished verandah. The back drop to the garden is open fields and hills with wonderful views wherever you look.
