Set on the shores of Loch Tay in Perthshire, the Old Village of Lawers features the ancient ruins of Old Lawers Church, built in 1669, the House of Lawers, which was the laird's house, a mill, a kiln and more.

According to Goldcrest Land and Forestry Group, the 3.31-acre site also boasts its own private beach, semi-ancient native woodland, a grass paddock with potential planning opportunity, trout fishing rights and 'wonderful views across the loch'.

And if all that didn't sound exciting enough, the village was once home to the Lady of Lawers, who is believed to still haunt the village to this day.

The Lady of Lawers was remembered for her various prophecies - a number of which appear to have come true.

The brochure from Goldcrest Land and Forestry Group explains: "When she referred to 'fire-coaches' crossing the Drumochter Pass, she is said to have predicted the coming of the railway.

"She is alleged to have planted an ash tree at the northern end of the church, stating that when it grew to the height of the little spire, the church would fall. In fact, the church was so badly damaged in a thunderstorm, in which the ash tree perished, that it was never used again."

Long before the construction of steamships, the Lady of Lawers had also once said: "A ship driven by smoke will sink in Loch Tay with great loss of life."

Historic Environment Scotland has described the site as 'an upstanding and well-preserved example of a deserted settlement'.
