History, Potential & Acres of Rustic Charm

Reported to have been built in the 1830s and boasting what might be the Highlands oldest and most magnificent oak tree in the back garden, this cottage is ‘a renovator’ that abounds with acres of opportunity.

With some spectacular original features (cast iron fireplace, extra-wide floor boards, convict sand stock bricks made on site), an attached bedroom wing with modern bathroom and (approx.) 12 glorious acres with a stream running through it, “Somerset Park” could be the perfect weekender for pony lovers. 

Alternatively, if you’re a keen historian looking for a restoration project or just wanting to build your dream house on flat, beautiful countryside (STCA), this place offers every conceivable opportunity.
