Galbraith is bringing to the market Easterton of Duntelchaig, an impressive steading conversion and separate traditional cottage in a beautiful rural location yet within easy reach of Inverness. 

Easterton of Duntelchaig offers the ideal opportunity to create a rural lifestyle by letting one or both of the properties as a holiday let or on a residential basis. The larger property (The House by The Loch) sleeps up to 19 and generates significant income as a holiday house for large parties.

The current owners have modernised and extended the three-bedroom cottage, and re-oriented and rebuilt the nine-bedroom steading to create exceptionally high quality, beautifully appointed accommodation with a wealth of features including a superb cinema for nine people, snooker room and games area, dining room with its own bar and table for 20. Outside there are over five acres of lovely grounds with an ornamental pond, lawns and a children’s playground.

Both the cottage and the steading enjoy great privacy and stunning views to Loch Duntelchaig and the Monadhliaths. Inverness is only 15 minutes by car.

John Bound of Galbraith, who is handling the sale of the property, said:

“This is an opportunity for the purchaser to acquire a lovely rural cottage along with a successful large holiday let which is absolutely ideal for family gatherings and parties, in a scenic area which is very popular with tourists. Great attention to detail has ensured that the properties enjoy privacy from each other, are not overlooked and cause each other the absolute minimum of disturbance.

“The properties lie just above the northern shores of Loch Duntelchaig and have stunning uninterrupted views across the loch and a landscape of ancient birch woodland to the Monadhliaths and the hills to the west, which is very rare to find in such close proximity to Inverness. It is a perfect situation for the future owners and for their guests.”

The House by the Loch has excellent facilities including a superb cinema that sits nine in great style, a snooker room and games area as well as spacious and light-filled reception rooms. The comfortable bedrooms can sleep up to 19 guests, with en suite or private bathrooms. The House by the Loch is currently a successful holiday let with high occupancy levels and many repeat bookings.

The cottage, which lies close by and has a southerly aspect, is a charming, comfortable traditional property with three bedrooms and three reception rooms including the recent garden room extension with lovely views.

Easterton of Duntelchaig extends to about 5.29 acres (2.14 ha) in all.

Inverness, just a fifteen-minute drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport. However, not far from the city, the countryside remains unspoilt and peaceful offering many opportunities for rural sport and recreation both around Easterton of Duntelchaig itself and further afield on the west coast and the ski centres at Aviemore and Fort William.

Easterton of Duntelchaig is for sale through Galbraith for a guide price of £1,100,000.
