House by the Loch and Easterton of Duntelchaig comprise a significant steading conversion and an adjoining traditional cottage in a beautiful and very private rural setting, yet close to Inverness. The properties lie just above the northern shores of Loch Duntelchaig, a large freshwater loch, 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 the city.
Inverness, just a fifteen minute drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with flights to the south and parts of Europe. 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.
The current owners purchased the property about 16 years ago and modernised and extended the cottage, which now provides very comfortable accommodation, and re-oriented and rebuilt the steading to create exceptionally high quality, beautifully appointed accommodation. The House by the Loch is currently managed as a large holiday let with Easterton of Duntelchaig, the cottage, providing owners’ accommodation, though both properties could lend themselves to residential and holiday use. Importantly, the owners have taken great trouble to ensure that the properties don’t look over each other, enjoy privacy from each other and cause each other the absolute minimum of disturbance.
House by the Loch has excellent facilities including a superb cinema that sits 9 in great style, a snooker room and games area as well as well-presented reception rooms. The comfortable bedrooms can sleep up to 19 guests, with en suite or private bathrooms. There is oil fired, underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and electric under floor heating in the bathrooms on the first floor and the house is light and airy throughout.
The House by the Loch is currently a successful holiday let with high occupancy levels and many repeat bookings. This is let through LHH Scotland https://www.lhhscotland.com/property/house-loch-inverness-loch-ness
It is the perfect holiday house for large parties and generates significant income and comes fully and generously equipped.
The cottage, which lies close by and has a southerly aspect, is a charming, comfortable traditional property and the recent garden room extension provides a further living area and has lovely views.
