This cosy log cabin 'in' the Scottish countryside could be yours - if you don't mind mowing the roof

A rare chance has arisen to get your hands on a characterful Highland hideaway set – literally – ‘in’ the Perthshire countryside.

Rocksite is a log-built house in set among woodlands in Glen Derby, near Blairgowrie.

Constructed in the late 1960s, it is built of intersecting logs and has an eye-catching grass covered-roof.

The house is one of a number of properties of similar design in the glen.

Rocksite has been extended by the current owners to add useful utility spaces while retaining its original character.

It boasts a spacious open-plan living, dining and kitchen area with large wood burning stove at its centre, as well as a sun room with great views and three bedrooms.

The property is set in about four acres of woodland and heathery hill with its own driveway, parking area and outbuildings.

A particular feature of the property is its unfettered access to the local countryside and its abundant wildlife.

Rocksite, in Kirkmichael, is on the market through Savills at offers over £275,000.
