Pubil Lodge sits at the top of Glenlyon in the small hamlet of Pubil, below Loch Lyon. The house is surrounded by beautiful Perthshire countryside and impressive mountains in what is reputed to be the longest glen in Scotland. The Glen, which starts at Fortingall and follows the River Lyon west to the loch is one of the most picturesque glens in Scotland and is easily accessible from the central belt and Scotland's major airports.
Aberfeldy is the nearest main centre with all essential services to hand including a medical centre, banking, veterinary surgery, optician and dental practices, a varied selection of quality shops, and schooling at the well regarded Breadalbane Academy, providing education from nursery to sixth year secondary. Pitlochry, approximately 43 miles, is home to the famous Festival Theatre, and has a mainline railway station. The vibrant county town of Perth is 60 miles to the south. The area provides ready access to a wide range of recreational pursuits, including golf on the many nine and 18 hole courses. There are opportunities for sailing and watersports, salmon and trout fishing on lochs and rivers, climbing, mountain biking and walking with several Munros nearby.
Pubil Lodge sits in a beautiful location at the top of Glenlyon in a rural and slightly elevated setting with panoramic views over the impressive mountains which surround the property. The lodge itself is south facing and traditionally built with a slate roof and distinctive tower centrally located. The house has a welcoming reception hallway which is heated by a double doored 30KW multi-fuel burning stove and has access to the hallway which links the kitchen and sitting room. The kitchen is fitted with a range of traditional base and wall mounted units and a large Aga and is adjacent to the dining room which has views to the south. Situated at the other end of the hallway is the sitting room which has a gas fire and bay window over the gardens.
The dining room is a fine room situated off the kitchen and is fitted with Hunting MacGregor curtains and carpet.
The working part of the house is beyond the kitchen where there is a boot room and utility room.
The bedroom accommodation is all on the first floor where there are six double bedrooms (master bedroom with en suite) serviced by two family bathrooms and one en suite shower room. The family wing at the west end of the house has a games room and is across from the library situated in the tower. All the first floor rooms have superb views across Glenlyon to Meall nan Subh.
The house is accessed from the main road through a set of iron gates set between two stone pillars. The driveway passes 'Ben's Pond' which is a haven for wildlife and surrounded by colourful rhododendrons. In front of the house is a large gravel driveway which leads round to the west facing courtyard which takes in the evening sun. The legacy pond sits to the south and has a south facing flower bed below the driveway, well stocked with lupins, daisies and poppies to name a few. The enclosed area around the pond is a tranquil haven. To the rear of the house is a third pond and a large hard standing with access into the machine store and a further patio taking in the morning sun.
To the north west of Pubil Lodge is the deer park and woodland which is split by the Pubil burn and extends to approximately 35 acres. This is stocked with a variety of Scots pine and deciduous trees, providing fuel for the wood burning stove. The current owner occasionally shoots hinds within the deer park. A paddock of about 3.5 acres sits to the south and has been used for grazing in the past. A lightweight boat with an electric outboard forms part of the sale.
