Developers and builders Glenisla Developments Limited (GDL) have made very good progress since acquisition of the site in October 2016. A new rural community "Pitcrocknie Village" is being developed adjacent to the market town of Alyth, near Blairgowrie In Perthshire, Scotland. The location is only 15 miles from the City of Dundee with a population of 200,000 and 19 miles from Perth, population 60,000. The Village will comprise a state-of-the-art 60 bed care home specially designed for Dementia care, 200+ houses (mostly bungalows) constructed in phases, and 9 business/commercial units.
GDL owns 140 acres of land for the development which also includes the 9 hole Glenisla Golf Course managed by and rented to the adjacent Alyth Golf course, and although currently closed, a bar/restaurant in the previous Glenisla Golf Course Clubhouse which can hold up to 150 people for functions, events etc. The residential houses will be built and sold over a number of phases, and the area will be carefully landscaped with existing woodlands, burns, ponds, gardens and cycle/walking/buggy paths. In time, the Village will be home to about 350 residents, within a 10 minute walk from Alyth which has a population of 3,500 and all amenities including hotels/restaurants/bars, medical centre, retail, church and commercial businesses.
As of June 2023, the care home building is erected and wind & watertight, due to be completed and open by the summer of 2024, and operated by Care Concern Group. There are 50 houses now sold and occupied at the development, with another 25 houses under construction in Phase 3. Over the next 3 to 4 years, Pitcrocknie Village will mature into a first class location for a mix of ages, comprising over 200 houses, the care home and leisure/business facilities
