Recently we showed you some places to stay to get away from today’s world. From Scottish cottages to the private dome, there are some pretty unique places to stay – but this one is definitely new.
Spread over 3.31 acres, the old village of Lawers, which is a former listed monument, includes a private beach, semi-old native forests, and trout fishing rights.
The ruins also include the Old Lawers Church, built in 1669, a mill, oven, and the Lawers’ House.
So if you have a spare Â£ 125,000 lying around, don’t you all? – Maybe it’s time to splash out.
But there is a catch …
The ancient village sits on the shores of Loch Tay and has some pretty remarkable historical links – including its own ghost!
This haunted figure is said to be the spirit of a 17th century seer, the Lady of Advocates who predicted catastrophic events. Some locals even say that the events she has planned will never be forgotten.
Are you still scared?
According to Perth and Kinross Archives, his prophecies were passed down in Gaelic from one generation to the next, only to be written in the 19th century.
Some of her famous and once mocked prophecies include the arrival of “fire-coaches” (trains) and “smoke-driven ships” (steamboats) as well as the Highland Clearances where she claimed that ” the earth will first be sifted and then sifted with its people, and the jawbone of the sheep will drive the plow out of the earth. “
To make things even more interesting, if you saw any stones on the shores of Loch Tay buried on the beach, it would be the remains of hewn stones that were intended for the construction of a new church.
The Lady said they would never find their place on the roof and the builders laughed at her.
Little did they know that a severe storm would soon wreak havoc, forcing stones to the ground where they currently rest.
There is also an ash tree planted by Lady Lawers which would be her final resting place.
As the tree grew it was said that the church would break up, which it did in 1833 following a thunderstorm and in 1843 with the disruption of the Church of Scotland .
His prediction that harm would happen to anyone who harmed the tree came true when John Campbell chopped the tree down with an ax – he was then gored to death by his bull.
Historic Environment Scotland describes the site as “a remarkable and well-preserved example of a deserted settlement”.
Jon Lambert, Partner of Goldcrest Land and Forestry Group Sales Agents, said: âThis is an extremely rare opportunity to buy some of the Scottish heritage in one of the most beautiful places in the country.
“The sale offers a unique chance to own and keep a region wonderfully rich in history, romance and tradition.
âThe old village of Lawers also offers fabulous amenities. Owners can launch a boat on the loch and enjoy fishing, picnicking and camping. It is a very special site.
