Ruthven House is situated in Ruthvenfield village which although only about three miles from the centre of Perth, has its own very defined identity. The village is situated on one of the oldest mill lades in Scotland which enabled Ruthvenfield to become a centre for bleaching and dyeing textiles in the 18th century. Although most of the old mills in the area are now ruins, the mill lade still runs through the village and is an attractive focal point.
The property is approached via a private driveway which leads through stone gate piers, with an electric gate, to a gravel turning circle in front of the house. Traditional characteristics such as the original windows, shutters, stair and fireplaces have been well preserved and restored while the conservatory and the fitted kitchen make the house extremely comfortable and family friendly.
