Cambusmore Lodge is in a beautiful secluded setting close to Dornoch in Sutherland. property comprises a handsome Victorian lodge with a self-contained cottage set in established, manageable grounds. Surrounded by its own land of gardens and mature broadleaf woodland, the lodge has elevated south-facing views over Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve. In this exceptional coastal setting the property has a framed outlook to a protected landscape providing a habitat for rare species of native wildlife including otters, seals, curlews and osprey.Although in a peaceful and unspoilt location, Cambusmore Lodge is easily accessible and is an ideal base from which to enjoy the area. Sutherland is known for its beautiful coastline, dramatic landscape and dry climate, and this peaceful region offers many activities for the outdoor enthusiast. Dornoch, with its famous golf course, is just a short drive away and has a good range of shops and amenities as well as schooling up to secondary level, while nearby Tain has a number of major supermarkets. Inverness, about a one hour and 15 minute drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.Formerly a shooting lodge on the Sutherland Estate, the house was part of Cambusmore Estate which was sold in 2021. The new estate owners have undertaken a programme of planting the land with native woodland through a government led initiative to combat climate change and biodiversity loss. The lodge doesn’t form part of this vision and so is now being sold to enable new owners to reinstate the house to its former glory whether as a residential property, holiday letting enterprise or events venue.Although occupied until 2021, the house is in a poor state of repair and is now in need of full renovation. However, it is an excellent example of a late Victorian shooting lodge, retaining its grandeur and many original features. It is rare for a house of this quality to be sold from an estate and it offers an exceptional residential or commercial opportunity.IMPORTANT NOTESPlease be aware that the property is in a poor state of repair. Viewers should take care at all times when walking around the interior of the property.
