A former steading,  Hamish’s Hame has been sensitively converted to create a luxurious link-detached cottage with one bedroom and two reception rooms.

The beautiful interior reflects many features of the original building including high ceilings, exposed beams and stone facings around the windows, while the conservatory provides a further reception room and takes advantage of the glorious views.

Phiddy Robertson of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said: “This is a delightful traditional property which would make a superb holiday cottage or main residence, offering light-filled and very attractive accommodation. Above all its setting, overlooking Loch Ness and with a woodland behind, is simply second to none. The purchaser would benefit from a wonderful rural lifestyle yet within easy reach of Inverness.”

The accommodation over one floor comprises: open plan sitting room, dining room, kitchen, conservatory, bedroom, shower room. The property is presented to the very highest standard throughout.

The grounds at Hamish’s Hame are well kept and extend to approximately 0.58 acres, laid mainly to grass, with a sheltered patio area. There is an electric vehicle charging point, a small log shed and plenty of space for parking.

The property is currently a highly successful holiday let with current turnover in excess of £25,000 per annum and a high number of bookings already in place for 2023. The goodwill of the holiday letting business, including the bookings, is available to purchase by separate negotiation. For more details contact the agent.

The current owners have had plans drawn-up for a one bedroom annexe within the grounds, although no planning permission has been obtained or sought for this project.

Abriachan Woodland, to the rear of Hamish’s Hame, is a community owned woodland managed to provide a safe habitat for native wildlife, for leisure activities, to enable teaching projects and providing extensive woodland walks and bike trails.

This region of Inverness-shire is famous for its association with Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle and is a popular tourist destination. However, just a short distance away from the tourist hotspots, the beautiful countryside remains unspoilt and tranquil providing a haven for wildlife and excellent rural sporting opportunities.

Inverness, 9 miles away, is a prosperous and expanding city benefiting from excellent communication links and inward investment and yet, as the city has grown, it has lost none of its Highland cultural identity, seen in its strong sense of community and thriving arts scene. Inverness  airport, with regular flights to the south and Europe, is 19 miles from the property.

Hamish's Hame, Balchraggan, Abriachan is for sale through Galbraith for Offers Over £275,000.
