The property lies close to the village of Bonar Bridge in Sutherland. The house sits in generous, established grounds, set against a backdrop of mature woodland and with beautiful south facing views over its own land to the Kyle of Sutherland.

Clamhan Lodge is ideal for those with equestrian interests, as it has stables, a shed with feed store, field shelter,  floodlit all-weather 40m x 20m riding arena and there are extensive hacking tracks direct from the house.

Phiddy Robertson of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said: “The current owners purchased Clamhan Lodge in 2009 and since then have improved both the house and grounds to create an impressive rural retreat. The purchasers will be able to enjoy a wonderful  lifestyle in this beautiful location, whether for walking, horse riding, bird watching, water sports or other outdoor pursuits, and all within easy reach of local amenities.”

The grounds extend to 7.3 acres (about 3 hectares) including established gardens, woodland and well-managed grazing divided into five fenced paddocks.

The property provides spacious family accommodation including on the ground floor: sitting room, dining room, study, playroom, family room, dining kitchen, utility room and  cloakroom. Upstairs is the master bedroom suite with dressing room and bathroom,  four further bedrooms, (one en suite) and family bathroom.

The gardens include a lawn, mature trees and colourful shrubs and an area of open woodland underplanted with spring flowering bulbs and with a network of grassy paths providing a trail through the trees. There are sheltered flagstone patio areas to the front and side of the house.

Secondary schooling is available in Dornoch or Tain, both of which offer a further range of shops and facilities.
