The Manse, Lochend is a handsome, B listed traditional former manse in an outstanding location in the Great Glen with superb south facing views to Loch Ness. Until recently The Manse has been run as a successful B&B and with its views to an iconic landmark and easy access to the main tourist centres in the Highlands, the property is ideally positioned to take advantage of the tourism business opportunities in the area. The house is attached to a church which is likely to come to the market in October of this year, potentially providing the opportunity to acquire both properties. The acquisition of the church further enhances the versatility of The Manse with the option of creating a holiday letting unit, retail space or office accommodation.
The house, which has well laid out accommodation over three floors, has been sensitively modernised and retains many traditional features including original fireplaces, timber floors and cornicing. When run as a B&B, the three first floor en suite bedrooms provided guest accommodation, while the second floor with its three bedrooms and family bathroom provided owners’ accommodation.
The tourism industry in the Highlands continues to expand with record numbers of visitors recorded each year and a season which now runs 12 months a year. Scotland and the Highland region regularly appear in global lists as the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of the world and new markets are emerging all of the time. Loch Ness is one of the must see destinations for most tourists and with this comes a demand for further accommodation and amenities for which The Manse has huge potential.
