Lochletter Farm Cottage and the adjoining land lies at the east end of Loch Meikle, amidst spectacular Highland scenery. The holding forms a most attractive, compact small holding with useful grass paddocks, excellent farm buildings and pretty amenity woodland.

Lochletter enjoys ready access to the Great Glen and its many tourist attractions; yet it is in a peaceful and unspoilt location and just a short distance away are Strathfarrar and Glen Affric, two National Nature Reserves with remnants of the ancient Caledonian pine forest set in a landscape of outstanding beauty. This protected countryside offers the best in rural sport and recreation, from enjoying the native wildlife, to walking and cycling on forest tracks, and fishing for salmon and trout on the local rivers and lochs.

LOT 1: LOCH LETTER FARM COTTAGE, THE FARM BUILDINGS AND THE LAND
About 52.5 acres (21.26 Ha) in all

Loch Letter Farm Cottage is approached off the single track tarmacadam drive, shared with the adjoining Loch Letter Farm, by a track which sweeps past the farm buildings to a generous gravelled parking area. The cottage is of concrete block construction under a slate roof.

GARDEN AND OUTBUILDINGS
The cottage stands in a generous garden, partly walled and partly fenced, with lawns to the front and rear. Forming a lean-to off the gable is timber Garden Shed, 4.92m x 3.39m, with a felt roof, housing the oil tank. There is also a further small timber garden shed and a corrugated iron clad shed. The garden includes former fruit and vegetable patches and a hen run and to the front of the house is a fenced plantation with a variety of amenity hardwoods, with a small grass paddock adjacent.

FARM BUILDINGS
A compact range of farm buildings, more than adequate for a holding this size.

THE LAND
Extending in all to some 52.5 acres (21.26 Ha), the land has two useful grass fields, extending to some 8.3 acres (3.36 Ha) providing useful livestock grazing, with water troughs.

The rest of the land is attractive amenity woodland, containing a mixture of hardwoods but primarily silver birch. A good access road, shared in part by the owner of the Lodge and chalets, runs through the property, with woodland on either side and there are two small ponds.
