Fancy moving to the village made famous by 'Local Hero' movie?

Househunters are being give the rare opportunity to buy a house in the Scottish fishing village propelled to world fame by Hollywood movie "Local Hero".

Househunters are being give the rare opportunity to buy a house in the Scottish fishing village propelled to world fame by a Hollywood movie.

Pennan, with a population of fewer than 50, is best known as the backdrop to Bill Forsyth’s 1983 comedy, Local Hero, starring Burt Lancaster and Dr Who actor Peter Capaldi.

In the Local Hero movie, American “Mac” MacIntyre falls in love with the fictional village of Ferness, which he is meant to take-over to clear the way for an oil refinery. 

Tourists still flock from all over the world to have their picture taken next to the village’s red phone box, which became an icon after featuring in the movie’s heartbreaking final shot.

Andjust around the corner from the phone box – which still works – sits Number 37 Pennan, which has just come on the market with Aberdein Considine.

The two-bedroom cottage is tucked away in a lane but is just one step away from the rugged Buchan coastline which made such a stunning backdrop to the movie.

With its peaceful ambience and stunning setting, the cottage would be the perfect home for anyone seeking a quieter more leisurely lifestyle in spectacular surroundings. It would also be perfect as a holiday cottage for personal use or letting out.

The property is tastefully decorated throughout in neutral tones with a nautical theme and the traditional charm and character blends seamlessly with the comforts of modern living. 

The property is in a Conservation area and benefits from lovely sash and case double glazed windows (apart from one single glazed storm window in the kitchen).

The idyllic and peaceful village means that viewing is essential to truly appreciate what is on offer.

The current owners are inviting offers in the region of £110,000. To view the full property details, or to arrange a viewing, click here.
