TAKE a look at this delightful stone-built 17th century cottage in picturesque Culross which is on the market for offers over £495,000.

Thistle Cottage, on Low Causeway, boasts five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a lounge, breakfasting kitchen, study and conservatory as well as a colourful 'hidden' garden and its own double garage.

It's a rare opportunity to buy an historic property, a category C listed building thought to date back to 1660, in the heart of the royal burgh which is famed for its cobbled streets and film credits, as well as the set for TV drama Outlander.

Colin Jenkins, from the Amazing Results estate agent, said: "It's a property with oodles of character and the enchanted garden is really quite unique.

"It's just on the market and there's lot of interest already."

The substantial family home with instant kerb appeal is in a picture postcard location in the village's conservation area.

The south-facing garden, surrounded by a high hedge and stone wall, has two patio areas, a raised seating area with views across the Forth, fruit trees, a greenhouse and a unique feature stone archway.

Viewing is by appointment and can be arranged by calling Colin Jenkins at Amazing Results on 01383 699000.
