Cool in the Pool

If you're looking to make a splash then what better way to do it than with your own swimming pool. Here are two homes currently for sale where you can dip your toe in the water or just dive in!

New to the market with our Inverness office, Morar is a modern family home located on the Sleat peninsula in the south east of the Isle of Skye. With four en-suite guest rooms, it is currently run as a popular bed and breakfast which thanks to its swimming pool is able to offer a little extra to its guests, and of course its new owners. The 3.65m by 7.3m mosaic tiled pool is heated and comes complete with shower cubicle, changing area and toilet.

While the pool is suitable for all weathers, outside the grounds extend to approximately 2.7 acres including a kitchen garden, poly tunnel and fenced chicken runs. Morar also has direct access to a spectacular and secluded stretch of coastline with shingle beach and rock pools. Dolphins, otters, whales and porpoises are all regularly spotted. Additionally, moorings are available nearby and a small further income stream comes from the property's solar panels.

Morar is for sale with CKD Galbraith Inverness priced at offers over 460,000.

Now having got you acclimatised with an indoor pool you might be able to guess what's coming next

Six miles from Dundee we find an exceptional country house in an accessible position on the Carse of Gowrie. Built for the romantic novelist Rosamunde Pilcher, the blue roof of Over Pilmore is a feature more commonly seen in Cornwall where Pilcher grew up and many of her books were set. Sheltered behind a beech hedge you will find the house's heated outdoor pool.

In addition to the opportunity to swim in the open air you can also enjoy a game on the tennis court or perhaps just relax in the summer house. Extending to over three acres in total, the gardens and grounds of Over Pilmore have been maintained to a high standard and are laid out to make them easy to manage.

Over Pilmore is for sale with our Cupar office priced at offers over 895,000
