A historic tower, Perthshire properties, hidden gems and our wreck of the month in Blairgowrie
The original Ackergill Tower is believed to date from 1475. It was significantly extended in the mid-19th century by the famous Scottish architect David Bryce and in the 1980s the tower was restored to its deserved grandeur. Set in 30 acres of its own grounds with a lease of shooting and fishing rights over an adjoining 3,000 acres, the property includes a Victorian walled garden, woodlands, formal lawns, private gardens and an oval park in which two B-listed dovecotes are located. In addition to the uniqueness of the property itself and its accessible location, Ackergill Tower can offer real flexibility of use. It can operate as either a country house hotel business, an exclusive-use venue or a conference venue.
