Gorgeous Scottish cottages to renovate

Two cute-as-buttons Scottish cottages for you today - in honour of our holiday in Scotland next week (thanks, Nicola).
First up, Old Faskally Cottage, in Killiecrankie (what names!). The two-bedroom cottage is a quite stunning positively brimming over with original details. I spent ages just looking at these pictures...

All on one level, there's a lounge, kitchen, two bedrooms and a shower room, plus a lean-to storeroom offering extension possibilities.

Lovely, lovely place and reminds me of so many traditional cottages we've holidayed in over the years, in Scotland and Wales.
Outside are gardens on all sides, and lovely open views, with the A9 and historic Killiecrankie a mile or so away.

Old Faskally is on the market through Irving Geddes with a guide price of £150k. Details and more pictures here and here.
Also in Perthshire, and a tad larger with three bedrooms over two floors (you'll want to change that), is this cottage in Blairgowrie.

Rather more of the original features have been removed or covered, but this handsome-looking traditional stone house does sit in its own, enclosed courtyard/driveway with stone outbuildings and a walled garden.

Who needs the privacy of open views when you've got chunky walls ; )
Inside is that slightly odd layout, but some lovely big rooms to work with - and I love the hall.

On the market with Hodge Solicitors at offers over £173,500. Details and more pictures here and here.
