Beautiful West Freuchies is built from reclaimed stone

West Freuchies and the Mill House are stunning properties which just have to be viewed.

Bell Ingram presents to the market West Freuchies, in Blairgowrie, a substantial property which was constructed around 1995 using the stone reclaimed from the original steading which stood there. It has a pitched slate roof.

Adjoining the main house, but independently accessed, is the Mill House which is the original part of the property dating from around 1880 when it was a threshing mill. West Freuchies and the Mill House have been carefully designed with thoughtful attention to detail.

The excellent layout of the accommodation has allowed West Freuchies to be run as a successful bed and breakfast business for many years and The Mill House is currently an award-winning self-catering property. Both properties have been rated four star by VisitScotland.
