Easter Bodylair is a small upland farm extending to about 38.5 acres and enjoys breathtaking south and easterly views across Strathglass to the hills beyond. The farm includes a fine traditional farmhouse which was renovated in 2000 and which has been further upgraded in recent years, an outstanding traditional steading and a substantial more modern portal framed shed. Excellent equestrian facilities include a sand based riding arena enclosed by a post and rail fence and good quality grazing land extending to about 36 acres.

Easter Bodylair Farmhouse is constructed of stone under a slate roof and provides comfortable, well appointed and flexible accommodation over one and a half storeys. On the ground floor, a bright and airy sun room / conservatory has large windows that open up the breathtaking southerly views over the garden to the hills beyond. This room provides access to the main hallway as well as to a cosy sitting room with an attractive open fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is a fully equipped dining kitchen with an oil fired Rayburn, various integrated appliances (including a double oven, grill, dishwasher, ceramic hob and microwave) and attractive part exposed stone walls; a well equipped utility room with a WC / cloak room, a family bathroom and a bedroom which is currently used as a family room. On the first floor, there is a shower room and 3 further bedrooms, one of which has an adjoining dressing room but which is currently used as a bedroom. The house is in excellent condition, has ample built in storage space and is tastefully decorated throughout. It benefits from double glazed windows and has oil heating.

Adjoining the house and forming a delightful enclosed courtyard is the traditional steading and former bothy (now used as a tack room). The steading is primarily constructed of stone under a slate and (in part) box profile steel clad roof and provides outstanding storage and livestock accommodation, including a range of general stores, stables (with up to 9 large loose boxes) and a hay store. Not only is the steading an excellent sheltered work space suitable for use with any equestrian or small holding interests, it also offers significant scope for development into additional accommodation (subject to obtaining all necessary consents). The original bothy is currently used as a tack room and like the steading has been significantly improved over the past 3 years. In addition, there is also a more modern steel portal framed barn. (see details below).

General Purpose Shed. About 17.7m x 14.7m
Wooden portal frame (inc lean-to) under a part asbestos and part steel profile roof, part block walled to 1/3rd height, lighting.
