West Coast Wonder
CKD Galbraith have brought a truly exquisite former gate lodge with generous grounds and loch frontage to the west coast property market.
West Lodge presents a rare opportunity to acquire a charming one bedroom property and about 5.14 hectares (12.7 acres) of unspoilt land for sale as a whole or in four lots with outline planning consent for 3 individual house plots.
West Lodge is a former gate lodge to Roshven House, situated on the spectacular Moidart Peninsula between the Road to the Isles of Eigg, Rum and Muck, and Ardnamurchan. The property is nestled between the mountains and sea in a magical hamlet that is sure to enchant any potential buyers.
The cottage, dating from around 1860, is thought to be designed by the original owner of Roshven House, Jemima Blackburn, a respected Victorian water colourist who is certain to have drawn inspiration from the cottage’s surroundings. The three rounded gables of the lodge cottage have created a unique and endearing property while its immaculately presented interior, featuring an open plan sitting room/dining room, double bedroom and bathroom, provides extremely comfortable accommodation.
Moidart Peninsula forms part of the Lochaber Geopark, created to protect and improve awareness of the beautiful landscape, diverse habitats and protected wildlife. Its coastline is famous for its white sandy beaches and clear blue waters, offering brilliant sailing and kayaking opportunities.
The small village of Glenuig is about 3 miles away and has a small shop, village hall, modern inn and public jetty, while Lochailort, about 5 miles away has a welcoming inn, post office, and a railway station with services to Glasgow and connections to Edinburgh and London.
Phiddy Robertson, handling the sale for CKD Galbraith, said: “West Lodge is a quaint property with a magical atmosphere and offers true “wow-factor”. The sale not only offers the chance to purchase the lovely gate lodge itself but give buyers a development opportunity to build houses on the separately available lots, each with loch frontage and stony beach.
“This is a completely unspoilt and spectacular part of the UK with beautiful landscapes and a strong community feel that draws buyers in; I expect there to be strong interest in West Lodge for this reason so would recommend early viewings.”
