This striking property, sleeping eight guests and three dogs across four bedrooms, is a fine example of a Scottish country house where beautifully considered renovation has enhanced the period style. Retaining many original features, authentic charm meets modern comforts giving it a real sense of timelessness.

The bright kitchen with its central island is perfect for grabbing a quick bite, or for more formal family mealtimes the light and elegant dining room has splendid views over the loch. The handy utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer has direct outside access, very useful if you and your furry friend return covered in mud!

Upstairs, cream walls and large windows give a sense of space and light in the traditional, eaved bedrooms, where handsome vintage furniture and patterned rugs retain the same sense of period character. Both king-size beds can be made into twins suiting a variety of party make-ups, and with two rooms boasting magnificent sea loch views, and the other two with views over the rear garden, awake to admire the pretty surroundings. The stylish bathroom is on the ground floor, and the shower room upstairs is bright with a skylight.
Outside, the pretty front garden is laid to lawn where pups and kids can enjoy hours of games in warm weather, with magnificent views over Gare Loch.
