Famed salmon river estate cast on the market

It was built almost 40 years ago by one of the country¹s most prominent architects, Schomberg Scott. A consultant in the 60s and 70s to the National Trust for Scotland, he designed Gannochy Lodge using traditional materials at every stage to create a classic Scottish country house.
 
The property has three main reception rooms, a large modern kitchen with breakfast room and seven bedrooms each with their own bathroom or shower room.
 
Set in around 35 acres of private grounds, lovely gardens, grazing fields and beech woodlands add to the home¹s undoubted attraction.
 
At offers over £1.9 million, the sale also includes the famous Loups Gorge and Dalbog salmon fishings ­ a five kilometre stretch of single-bank, private fishing with a five-year annual average catch of 60 salmon and grilse.
 
³This is an outstanding example of a Scottish country house in a beautiful setting,² said Rory Ballantyne of Edinburgh-based estate agents, Blackie Ballantyne who are handling the sale with Bidwells Property Consultants.
 
³It is also conveniently situated with good road links – comfortably within a two-hour drive of Edinburgh and its airport, approximately one hour from Aberdeen Airport, and 40 minutes from Dundee airport.
 
³Brechin is only seven miles away, Forfar, 20, Dundee, 33 and Aberdeen 35 so it combines perfectly elegant rural living with the convenience of larger towns and cities.
 
³We believe it will appeal to those keen to savour countryside living and sporting pursuits while enjoying easy access to places such as Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh.²
