About Richard Davie
I lived with my family in Glasgow for 13 years. Work brought us up to Scotland - we worked at the University in Glasgow - and work took us away again - we're now a long way away down on the North Kent coast. We would happily have stayed for this place if we could. We loved Glasgow; we loved living in Scotland, not least the Highlands, and wanted, if we could, to get a place up here, and finally we got the chance. We bought this place as a retreat from the working week, an adventure for our young son, and a place to host our friends and their kids. Once we'd got it, we wished we'd had it years earlier and could keep it for years after. It's the kind of place families will spend every Christmas and every Summer holiday: which is exactly what the previous owners did, and many of the neighboring families do as well. Sadly, we had to move away but we're trying to keep it as a special place for us and we hope you can see that when you visit. Our son still loves his log house, and friends who've visited know why we love it so much, and I hope you can see why.
Why Richard Davie chose Kirkmichael
As soon as we saw the log walls and turf roof (beginning of May, 2011) we wanted the place. Visiting it (and the lovely drive over the pass from Pitlochry, and passing through the village) clinched it. For us it was a whole combination of things: it's accessible but still secluded; the area is historic but not twee; you get the convenience of a holiday 'site' while still feeling you've got away from other people; the country around is beautiful but not bleak; being on the East side of Scotland the weather is dryer; and you can easily get to other places around about, so you won't exhaust the possibilities in one stay.
What makes this Cabin unique
Drive over the pass from Pitlochry or up the valley from Blairgowrie; drive into the village, over the river, up the hill and into the woods and park up at the house. Stop: listen. It's so quiet. At night it's truly dark. You go in and you smell the wood and the background smoke from the log fire in the living room, which of course you light... During the day you may see a red squirrel in the trees outside (yes they still have red squirrel here), or deer walking past the back window. And the next day you've slept in because it's so quiet. And after breakfast - maybe in good weather you've already opened up the patio door and sat outside - you walk down to the village to stock up on a few things, and the view when you walk down is a tonic in itself.
