Property Details

NOW UNDER OFFER ***Charming Cottage with Spectacular Views*** This amazing property has an enviable elevated location and is surrounded by breath-taking scenery. Please watch Boom's property video for an in-depth tour of this fabulous Island home.

Creachan Cottage has arguably some of the best views in the west of Scotland. The property looks out towards the Sound of Raasay and Skye's dramatic rugged mountains. Built in the 19th century as a gatekeepers lodge for the Raasay Estate, this is a delightful 2-bedroom, two public room cottage with a wealth of character and charm.

Upon entering, you quickly realise that the accommodation is deceptively spacious with an abundance of natural light. The open-plan lounge / kitchen offers a sociable living space with dining area. The multi fuel stove provides a lovely warmth and the sea views are simply stunning. Storage throughout the home is excellent and there is also a large walk in utility cupboard with vanity sink and plumbing for a washing machine.

A recently fitted family bathroom has stylish fixtures and fittings and consists of three-piece white sanitaryware, w.c., wash hand basin and shower over bath with glazed screen.
The second lounge, again with sea views, offers the perfect place to relax and unwind. This room also has a multifuel stove which is ideal for those cosy nights in.

The master bedroom has impressive dimensions and benefits from two windows that engulf the room with natural light. Bedroom 2 has amazing views of the sea and surrounding countryside. All rooms have LPG gas fired central heating and upvc double glazing. There is a convenient w.c. located next to the two bedrooms.

Creachan benefits from a substantial plot totally 1 acre, with a large two-room outbuilding (38 square metres) with power and double glazing that is being currently utilised as a games room and shed by the current owners. This outbuilding would lend itself perfectly to being converted into a serviced holiday apartment providing all the relevant permissions were granted. The cottage is an idyllic family home or would make a perfect second home for an astute investor. If you would like the perfect place to escape from the rigours of town and city life, Creachan Cottage is just what you're looking for.

Raasay is a popular tourist destination and can act as a great base to explore the other Scottish Islands, thus creating bed and breakfast business potential. The main village of Inverarish boasts a community-owned shop and post office, an excellent primary school, a health centre and a community-owned hall which hosts events throughout the year.

The property is within walking distance of both Raasay House Hotel and the newly opened Isle of Raasay Distillery.

Our Property Video Tour of this Lovely Cottage is available here online, and also on our Youtube channel.
