It presents a fantastic lifestyle purchase for those keen on exploring the great outdoors in a truly stunning location in beautiful Invernesshire.  The accommodation on offer is highly flexible depending on the owners’ needs, with the loft currently being used as a second reception room/home office but could be used as a principal bedroom given the adjoining shower room.”
