With glorious vistas across the loch and Sutherland countryside, this imposing stone property is a perfect retreat for those wishing to enjoy the quiet beauty of Scotland''s breath-taking Highlands.
Sitting right by the shores of Loch Fleet, this former granary was once owned by the Duke of Sutherland. Today it’s an enviable holiday home for families and groups of friends who want to enjoy stylish living on the waterfront. Sleeping 10 guests across five bedrooms, this charming lochside property is perfectly placed to spot wildlife and to explore the surrounding region of Sutherland and it’s abundant Scottish charms.
Step into the property entrance where a warm welcome awaits in this charming abode where you can enjoy the comforts of traditional country style in relaxed pastels and clean, crisp hues, with enviable garden and lake views from all sides of the property. Culinary Kings and Queens will love the kitchen which runs across two adjoining rooms - perfect for food preparation and cookery space when creating feasts for your mighty clan! There are two living room spaces where guests can spread out on the ground floor - perfect for families as teenagers can scuttle off to enjoy their own den in the evenings while the grown-ups can curl up on the sofas and catch up on the day, perhaps with a smooth single Malt in hand to match the cosy ambience of the open fire after a busy day out. The kitchen is well-equipped for family meals to enjoy in the dining room, and guests will appreciate the convenience of a ground floor bathroom, a utility room, and a separate WC. As sleepy-heads start to nod, head upstairs to find the bright and airy bedrooms, each inducing slumber with the sound of the loch water lapping on the shore, and the promise of wonderful waterfront views to look out on as you stretch out and make plans for the day.
