Leac A Ghradain lies close to Torridon village on the west coast of Scotland. The property is in an outstanding elevated setting, with breathtaking panoramic views of the Torridon mountains, Ben Damph, Ben Shieldaig, the Applecross hills and lochs Torridon, Sheildaig and Damph. The house sits comfortably in this landscape, the structure of the grounds formed from natural features to blend in with the wider environment and to provide habitats for native flora and fauna. Rocky outcrops form the routes of pathways and provide viewpoints, while the garden has been created to encourage wildlife with its wildflowers, ponds, woodland and heather moorland. Over 50 species of birds have been seen from the garden.

The current owners purchased the property in 2013 and since then have carried out considerable work to create a delightful family home set in landscaped but wildlife friendly grounds. Improvements include conversion of the garage and the annexe to form part of the main house accommodation, creation of a new front entrance and hallway, the installation of french doors, a new boiler, a new oil tank, the installation of a wood burning stove, a new back porch, drainage and ground works around the house, and complete redecoration. The accommodation in the house flows with its semi open plan kitchen and reception rooms which are filled with coastal light and take in the stunning views. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and the potential exists to create letting accommodation in the rear wing of the house with its reading room, 2 bedrooms and shower room. In addition, the outbuildings are a feature of the property with their high quality timber construction and sloping turf roofs.
