    Shannoch & Saddlebank extends in total to about 648 acres and comprises a well equipped ring fenced mixed livestock unit with two farm houses and the opportunity to create a further principal residence on the site of a derelict house.

    Saddlebank Farmhouse and its adjacent farm buildings lie to the east of the public road, while Shannoch Farmhouse lies in a secluded position to the west of the road and is accessed via a private track. The potential house site at Greenfield is set well back from the road, in a private position with spectacular panoramic views.

    Shannoch & Saddlebank has traditionally been managed as a mixed livestock unit and has typically carried 60 suckler cows and 300 ewes in recent years. Rising gently from approximately 160 metres to 220 metres above sea level, the permanent and temporary grassland is predominantly classified as Class 3(2) by the James Hutton Institute for Soil Research, and is capable of providing good quality forage and being cultivated for fodder and arable crops to provide feed for livestock. The land is split by a minor public road which runs from north to south through the farm, providing easy access to many of the fields. The majority of the moorland which provides extensive rough grazing is located to the north of Shannoch Farmhouse.

    In addition to the attractive Shochie Burn which forms part of the eastern boundary, the areas of moorland, small woodland plantations and a pond offer considerable amenity including opportunities for deer stalking for red and roe deer, and rough shooting for a variety of species including woodcock, occasional grouse, wildfowl and pheasant. These areas may also offer a purchaser opportunities to further enhance the amenity of Shannoch & Saddlebank by carrying out some small scale woodland creation.

    Shannoch & Saddlebank is being offered for sale as a whole or in four lots as follows:


    Saddlebank Farmhouse and the farm steading are centrally located within the land which forms Lot 1. The traditional stone farmhouse occupies a prominent site with a southerly aspect which overlooks the farmland to the front and takes full advantage of the fantastic views while being conveniently situated in close proximity to the main farm buildings and livestock accommodation.

    The farmhouse, which would benefit from upgrading, provides accommodation laid out over two floors.

    The house is generally accessed from the direction of the farm buildings and parking area, with a back door leading directly into a harled stone extension which forms the utility room. This then leads on to the kitchen. The traditional front door to the house is accessed from the garden, and from this a hallway links the living room, dining room and bathroom. Stairs from the hallway lead to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms and a further small single bedroom or box room.

    Central heating for the house is currently provided by a solid fuel stove located in the living room.

    A small and easily maintained area of garden lies to the front of the house. Enclosed by a well maintained hedge, the garden contains a stone well, an area of lawn, and beds previously used for growing vegetables.

    Farm Buildings

    The range of traditional and modern farm buildings provide considerable livestock accommodation and general storage and comprise:

    1. Straw / Implement Store ? 24.4m x 10.5m
    Steel framed open-fronted building with profile roof and cladding. Hardcore floor.

    2. Cattle Court ? 37m x 21.3m
    Concrete framed cattle court with fibre cement roof and concrete floor. Raised central feed passage.

    3. General Purpose Shed? 18.4m x 11.5m
    Dutch barn with steel framed lean to off side. Corrugated iron roof and cladding, and hardcore floor.

    4. Implement Store? 11.5m x 5.4m
    Timber pole lean to with corrugated iron roof. Hardcore floor.

    5. Store ? 10.7m x 4.4m
    Traditional stone and slate steading building.

    The Land

    The land included within Lot 1 extends to about 585 acres in total. The central part of the farm, including the land between Saddlebank and Shannoch farmhouses contains the best of the land including productive temporary grass and arable ground along with some good quality permanent pasture. The ploughable land has been used for grazing, silage production and to grow feeding barley in recent years.

    The north western part of the farm is an area of rough grazing and heather moorland extending to about 257 acres. While its agricultural capacity is restricted to providing rough grazing for sheep and cattle, this part of the farm has considerable amenity. There is a further area of rough grazing in the north eastern corner of the farm, from which the ground drops away fairly steeply down to the banks of the Shochie Burn.


    Approached by a private track which passes through the farmland forming Lot 1, Shannoch Farmhouse sits in an elevated yet very private position with exceptional views over the surrounding landscape and towards the distant hills. Set within about 3 acres, the traditional stone farmhouse and outbuildings have been recently occupied but would benefit from some modernisation.

    The accommodationincludes a kitchen, living room and dining room on the ground floor. The first floor has two double bedrooms both of which benefit from the fine southerly views, with a further small single bedroom or box room between them. A timber clad porch to the rear of the house acts as a boot room and provides access to the outbuildings and parking area.

    To the rear of the house is an attractive traditional stone steading range together with two modern stone and brick built agricultural sheds. These buildings could be used for a number of purposes including equestrian or livestock use, or subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents could be converted to provide additional accommodation.


    Extending to about 35 acres in total, the land forming Lot 3 comprises two fields of ploughable grass. Situated to the front and rear of Shannoch Farmhouse, these fields would provide excellent grazing for horses or livestock for the purchaser of the farmhouse, or useful additional land to the purchaser of Lot 1.


    Greenfield comprises a derelict traditional stone farmhouse and barn situated in a spectacular setting within approximately 24 acres of grassland. With the hills of Logiealmond Estate forming a backdrop to the house, the farmhouse occupies a prominent position which offers stunning panoramic views taking in the hills of the Grampians and the Angus Glens to the north east and the Ochil Hills to the south. Greenfield provides a rare opportunity to create an exceptional rural home in a remote yet accessible part of upland Perthshire.

    Greenfield is approached by means of a private track which runs through the grazing land for some 450 metres from the minor public road. The land which runs from the farmhouse back to the road includes areas of improved pasture together with some rough grazing, wetlands and a small stream. This land has recently been used for grazing sheep and cattle, but could provide grazing for horses and ponies, or could be managed with conservation and amenity in mind.

    The farmhouse is in a state of disrepair but offers potential for restoration or redevelopment. All proposals will be subject to formal approval by Perth and Kinross Council.View payable LBTT Calculator for this property
