The house is in Stanley, which is 6 miles North of Perth. The house is very quirky and full of character. It used to be a sweetie shop, hence the name. We have a photo on display in the house taken around 100 years ago showing it when it was a sweetie shop. There is a large south facing, fully enclosed garden at the back of the house which is an oasis for wildlife. The pond has Goldfish alongside a resident toad!! You can relax and enjoy the birds visiting the feeders. We have so many lovely varieties that visit. From the resident House-Sparrows, to Goldfinches, Nuthatches, Blue-tits, Coal-tits, Song-thrushes and if you are lucky you can sometimes see the Osprey fishing over the River Tay at the back of the house.
I have lived in Perthshire all my life and so have great knowledge of the area. I live a short distance away and I am on hand to give recommendations on where to visit. I like to walk the hills, kayak and wild-swim in the many beautiful lochs in the area. I fell in love with Stanley and our house around 5 years ago and spent around two years lovingly restoring The Auld Sweetie Shop to a high standard.
Stanley is a lovely, friendly village near Perth. We are on the edge of Stanley village and therefore have the benefit of having cosy country pubs and great restaurants and shops close-by whilst having peace and tranquillity once you are in the garden. The beautiful walk along the River Tay straight from our front door is magical some days. There are 3 fishing beats in Stanley and the river is very popular with anglers. You can book fishing experiences through the Fishpal website. We are only 4.5 miles from Ballathie and 7 miles from Meikleour.
