Outstanding Development Site | Athron Hill

Rettie & Co. have brought to the market a 196 acre (79 ha) site located in Kinross-shire on the southern aspect of Dochrie Hill with spectacular views to the south across Loch Leven. This outstanding site is an environmental haven with extensive existing woodland and approximately an additional 20,000 trees planted by the current owners to date. The site also benefits from a licence to extract from two bore holes, potential wind power (planning withdrawn for two turbines), diverse flora and fauna including red squirrels and roe deer.

Whilst the site has an implemented planning consent for 35 houses (designed by renowned Edinburgh architect Malcolm Fraser), the site may appeal to individuals or organisations seeking to create an environmental retreat.

Despite its appealing isolation the site is located only 3 miles from the town of Milnathort, 5 miles from the larger town of Kinross and approximately 29 miles from Edinburgh. Whilst the site is set in the hills and entirely surrounded by woodland it is in relatively close proximity to the M90 motorway. The surrounding countryside offers an exceptional range of opportunities for outdoor pursuit including golf courses in Kinross and Milnathort and many scenic walks in the Ochil and Cleish Hills. Loch Leven is one of Europe's most important wildfowl reserves.

The site was formerly occupied by the Ochil Hills Hospital, built in 1902 and demolished in 2003.

There is a full information pack with regards to services to services available from the selling agents. The site can be purchases as a whole or in three separate lots www.rettie.co.uk/developments/athronhill

Whilst this spectacular site benefits from an implemented planning consent for 35 bespoke houses, we anticipate that it will also appeal to individuals or organisations seeking to develop perhaps only one significant house, a cluster of houses or alternatively, an organizational retreat given its idyllic and isolated setting yet within reasonable distance of necessary amenities.
