I'm seeking advice from locals and longtime imports. I'm after a location that is rural/secluded, in or near a small village, that would also be no more than an hour and a half from Edinburgh by Public Transport. It could be 15 mins away or 90 mins, that could include driving to a train station and catching a train or walking/busing to a train station and catching the train, either is as good as the other.
Basically I'm after solitude but with social interaction on my terms, gotta love PTSD hey.
Also if anyone has a general idea how much it would cost to build a two up two down oak framed house I'll take that info as well.
Cheers for your help. Have a good one.
