All of this could be yours for just $6,941,695.00 (or 4.25 million British pounds). Here are some additional facts about this lovely home.
The estate on which Kinross House stands was originally owned by the Earls of Morton but in 1675 it was bought by Sir William Bruce, regarded as one of Scotland's most important architects. Kinross House is a classically elegant Palladian mansion, built by Sir William Bruce as his own house and is generally considered to be the most elegant and refined examples of his work. Kinross House represents one of the earliest of Scotland's country houses.
The formal gardens at Kinross House are a superb and most attractive feature of the property. They rank as one of the finest formal gardens in Scotland.
Between the gardens and loch is a useful field of pasture which extends to about 22 acres. It is suited for grazings by horses or other livestock. Either side of the drive are a variety of mature trees providing amenity, privacy and shelter and to the North of the house is a further wood through which there is a lovely walk down to the loch known as the 'Dark Walk'.
The buyer will be given the right to put two boats with outboard motors up to 6 horsepower on Loch Leven, to enable them to fish for Loch Leven's world renowned brown trout. Included is the site of the former boathouse (now demolished) beside Loch Leven.

And here is the evidence on my trusty Garmin. Check out the calories burned, 3171. Oh, yeah! It is steak & potatoes time at Carabbas. Then, a John Cole for dessert. No guilt!

During the month of July we were enthralled with watching the Tour de France. We had hopes that Lance was going to win but "Pistolero" Contador took things into his own hands and stopped playing as a team member of Astana. I will admit that I was impressed with Armstrong's patience that he showed by not expressing his dissapointment in a teammate who played by different rules. I will stop talking about that because I could get on my soap box about that for a while.
With all of the activities going on we have definitely lacked in keeping up with our blogging. We hope that everyone has had a lovely summer and may the remainder of the year be refreshing to your soul.
Be sure to take the time to look out of your window and enjoy the beauty that is outside and if possible take your shoes off and walk barefoot in the grass. It will do you good.

Those of you who know of Diane or have met Diane know that she is a very special person and one of the sweetest persons on the earth. Money has no value to her so Monica is paying Diane with a pop and candy bar for her time and effort to create the Michael tribute. Diane has accepted this payment and showed her approval with widely opened eyes and the unique sound of "yuuummm" that only Diane can make.
Now back to the picture, Tuesday night Diane called Kim to say that the drawing is completed but that she has taken some artistic license with the picture. She explains that Michael is in the military suit as requested but the face represents the "Beat It" years. She also added that she preferred the more brown skinned Michael to the lighter skinned Michael so there is more color to his skin as well.
We hope that you like the picture. I know that there is no way that I could have created a picture this good if I had tried. I LOVE the finished product!
