Located within the historic 'Drum Castle Estate' which is owned and run as a popular visitor attraction by The National Trust For Scotland, we offer for sale this unique development opportunity. Within the site is an attractive yet wholly uninhabitable cottage with a stone byre. It is thought that subject to the relevent planning consents, the site could be developed into a habitable dwelling. There are currently no services to the site and therefore connection to the local electricty and water supply will be required. A private drainage system would also be required in most scenarios. Obtaining the relevant consents and planning permissions would be at the discretion of the purchasers. The site is to be sold with a Conservation Agreement. Further details and a full schedule of significant features can be provided on request. 'Drum Castle and Gardens' are a popular Deeside visitor attraction. The Royal Forest and Tower of Drum were given to the Irvine family by Robert the Bruce in 1323. The surrounding ancient forest is home to oak trees dating back to the 1700's.
