Location and local Amenities
Edenshead has a wonderful position on the edge of the village of Gateside overlooking the river Eden. The property is conveniently close to the M90 motorway (3.5 miles) which provides access to both Edinburgh and Perth. It is also the perfect base for exploring the east neuk including St Andrews and the quaint coastal villages such as Crail, Anstruther and Elie. The nearest market town, Kinross, sits beside Loch Leven which is famous for its vairied bird life and excellent trout fishing. For better shops without going into the city of Perth, we recommend a trip to Cupar.
Although Gateside has no shops we do recommend the Pub (only a short stagger to the end of the drive – remember the torch). For local shopping the nearest convenience store and post office can be found in Strathmiglo, which is 1.5 miles to the east.
The local church in Gateside has now closed. The nearest Chrch of Scotland is located in the next village of Strathmiglo.
Local walks are plentiful. Ask us for directions.
You could not be better placed to visit the key sites of either Fife, Perth and Kinross or even Angus at a stretch. We have included a number of tourist board leaflets in this pack for your perusal however we would recommend a visit to St Andrews, Elie (great beach if the sun is out), Kelly Castle and gardens, Falkland village and palace and Scone Palace near Perth. There are numerous Scottish National Trust and Historic Scotland properties in the area as well as wild life sanctuaries.
