Whinhill House, Auchterawe, Fort Augustus, Highland, Scotland, PH32 4BT

4 bedroom detached house for sale

Property Details

In addition to the main house, there is a three bedroom forestry cottage which is in need of major renovation, 3 stables, with running water and mains electricity which have huge potential for conversion into self contained holiday lets, 2 garages, summer house, log shed and 2.3 acres of land.

There is the possibility that this plot could be converted into a thriving business due to its stunning location and would also appeal to anyone who is interested in running a self contained small holding as the paddock area would be ideal for livestock, with plenty of room for vegetable patches or animal enclosures.

The main house would make a beautiful family home or could equally be run as a lucrative B&B due to the stunning and unique location and with the potential for converting the existing stables and forestry cottage, there is no limit to the future possibilities that this plot has to offer.

The property benefits from Geo Thermal under floor heating on the lower levels and an oil fuelled Aga in the kitchen gives out of plenty of heat and provides hot water, with an open fire in the lounge area, should you need to keep extra warm on those cold winter Highland nights. A new oil fuelled boiler and oil tank have just been fitted, which will help to reduce the running costs and offer an economical and efficient alternative to electricity.

Forestry Cottage

To the front of the house, sits the original quirky 1950's built forestry cottage, which is in need of major renovations and currently comprises a kitchen, 3 bedrooms, living room and bathroom. On completion of any renovations, this could easily be rented out separately as a home or a holiday let if required.

The current vendors had previously been granted planning permission for a 3 bedroomed cottage where the forestry cottage now sits and should the decision be made to replace the existing property in the future, this would certainly be an option.

The property is located in Auchterawe, with the popular village of Fort Augustus just over 2 miles away, which is situated on the most southern tip of Loch Ness on the Great Glen Way.

The historic and scenic hamlet is a popular tourist destination, lying on the impressive 60 mile lone Caledonian Canal, halfway between Fort William and Inverness, Fort Augustus offers spectacular views down Loch Ness and is a paradise for keen walkers and cyclists with many beautiful walks around the area, the most popular being The Great Glen Way.

Visitors can explore the surrounding countryside by cruising Loch Ness, home to the world famous Loch Ness Monster, or take a trip to nearby Urquhart Castle, Glen Affric or simply sit and watch the boats navigating the locks.

A thriving tourist hot spot which has many restaurants, shops and breathtaking views in any direction, Fort Augustus also benefits from excellent schooling, both primary and secondary, with Glenurquhart High School only 30 minutes away, a direct bus route for which is available. The village can be easily accessed via bus from either Inverness or Fort William and there is a school bus in operation right outside the house.

Both Inverness, "the capital of the Highlands" and Fort William, "the outdoor capital of the UK" are less than an hours drive away, as is the stunning and breathtaking Eilean Donan Castle, reputably the most photographed castle in Scotland, on the road to Skye, also well worth a visit.

Travel Directions

From Inverness, follow the A82 Fort William road along the shores of Loch Ness. After the sign telling you that you are in Fort Augustus, take the turn off to the right marked Jenkins Park and Auchterawe, there is a Miller Stewart For Sale Board at the junction. Follow the road as it veers left and turn right towards Auchterawe, past the forestry commission, through the forest for about 2 miles and Whinhill House is on the left hand side.
