Property Details

Plans were drawn up by the current owner, and approved in November 1997, though this has expired over the passage of time. Planning approval reference number 97/01294/FUL.

The site sits comfortably in the local landscape, to the west of Dufftown heading towards Glenlivet. Set in a beautiful unspoilt landscape and superb, uninterrupted views to Ben Rinnes & Meikle Conval.

Directions: From Dufftown, head west on the B9009 for approximately 2.6 miles. Turn sharp left and follow the tarred road for 0.3 miles. The access gate to the old Bothy at Balliemore is off the left hand bend on your right.

Access: Currently is on foot with no visible path across the Balliemore burn. You will then see the corrugated iron shed for the old generator and the remailing walls of the old Bothy.

The current owner received permission via the acting land agents in 1996 to source a private water supply from Jocks Hill to the south of the site. Electricity, the owner had the notion of a water generator on the site in Balliemore Burn. Alternatively, there is an electricity line running alongside the Dullan water at the bottom of the valley.
Please note, any outlays and costs, incurred or associated with planning and servicing requirements would be the responsibility of the prospective purchasers.

Viewing: Unrestricted viewing is available, though any viewer must be aware there is no defined pathway beyond the access gate. It would be appreciated, if prospective purchasers consider neighbouring countryside and land and that the gate to the site be closed on leaving.

The site be signposted by Miller Stewart Estate Agency Network Signs from the B9009
