Description

Crieff Armoury is a stunning lower ground floor apartment situated in the lovely market town of Crieff in Perthshire. This property forms part of the old Drill Hall dating back to the 1700’s when it was originally a Distillery which operated for almost 200 years. Eventually the building became the home of the Black Watch regiment and hence the name of the apartment today. This self catering accommodation is very high tech with professionally designed zoned lighting system and a full multi room audio system, so you can be relaxing in the bath with your own choice of music while other family members listen to something completely different in the bedrooms. In addition to this, within the large open plan living area, there is a full 7.1 Audio Visual Home Cinema Experience with perfectly placed speakers located in the ceiling. All of these systems can be controlled through a small hand held device! The apartment is located slightly away from the main shopping street and it is not far to walk down to the River Earn which offers great walks and fishing. A short stroll up to the town centre provides a wonderful selection of excellent pubs, restaurants, cafes and interesting local shops to meander through. The local town square is a great spot to sit, relax and watch the world go by. Up the hill Crieff Hydro Hotel offers leisure facilities with luxury swimming pools, spa treatments, numerous outdoor activities and golf.

Fowlis Wester is a tiny village that is in an area heaving with ancient sites such as cup and ring marked rocky outcrops, hill forts and stone circles. The hills and mountains start to become rugged to the North and West of Crieff, this is due to the Highland Fault Line - a natural fault dividing Scotland’s lowlands to the south and the highlands to the north. There are numerous forest tracks, marked walks, cycle ways/trails to explore and Munro’s to climb within this area.
