Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Kerrow House is of stone construction under a slate roof. From the main public
road, an asphalt driveway, forming part of the property, leads through pasture
land to gates opening onto a tree-lined drive leading to a turning circle at the front
of the house.

The property is located in approximately 12 acres of wooded grounds on the south side of the River Glass and close to the attractive Highland village of Cannich.

The original house dates from 1770 and was built as a hunting lodge for the Chisholm family. The house was extended in the 1800's, but by the middle of the last century had been sold and for a time was home to Neil Gunn, the celebrated Highland author. Kerrow House and the lodges are currently as a successful B&B/self-catering business. Within Kerrow House there are 3 letting bedrooms, plus a self-contained wing known as Stalkers Wing. There are a further two cottages and two chalets within the grounds. If required Kerrow House could be easily returned as a whole to a private family home and there is also scope for further development. Kerrow House is a unique property, and its sale offers a fantastic lifestyle opportunity with enormous further development potential.

Fishings
The fishings comprise 3.5 miles (5.8k) of single bank trout fishing on the River Glass which has sixteen named pools. This provides exciting and notable sport with trout of up to 1.5lbs regularly being caught, and with fish weighing up to 7lbs not being uncommon. Whilst there are no formal fishing records, the vendor estimates that annual catches exceed 20 fish (salmon). The inclusion of the trout fishing is a great asset to the property and should not be underestimated. The property also benefits from 280m of single bank fishing extending from the Fasnakle Bridge to the green marker post opposite the power station. The owners have taken fishing rights by the week on the River Glass over successive years and have re-let these with their accommodation.

The village of Cannich has a small shop and post office, primary school and Pub/restaurant. Nearby is the conservation village of Tomich. The picturesque town of Beauly is about 18 miles away, and this benefits from a railway station and useful range of shops and facilities. Secondary schooling is available in Drumnadrochit. Inverness, which is under an hour's drive away, has an ever increasing range of facilities expected of a modern city, including a main line railway station and its airport with regular flights to the South and Europe. To the East of Inverness lies the already famous Castle Stuart Golf Course, which is just over an hour's drive from Kerrow. Strathglass is amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland. Native
woodland and dramatic waterfalls provide a natural habitat for a wide variety of flora and fauna including red and roe deer, pine martens, badgers and golden eagles. Kerrow House lies close to Glen Affric, famous for its ancient Caledonian pinewoods, and the surrounding landscape of lochs, mountains and moors offer an array of opportunities for recreation including walking, climbing, sailing, fishing, shooting, deer stalking and it is immensely popular with holiday makers.

Grounds
The grounds at Kerrow extend to approximately 12 acres (4.9 ha). There are three fenced paddocks within the grounds which offer excellent free draining and well sheltered grazing. The house is surrounded by mature open birch woodland, together with fine specimen pine trees and meandering paths leading to the cottages and the river. The formal gardens lie immediately to the rear and side of the house and are laid mainly to lawn interspersed with trees and shrubs. There are gravelled sitting areas adjacent to the house, one with an outdoor barbeque, and a clematis and rose arched walkway leading through the lawns.

Pony paddocks, stabling including 3 loose boxes with adjoining feed store and various other outbuildings.

House Site
Informal discussions with the local planning authority indicate there is potential scope for the creation of a further dwelling upon the site of the Pole Barn, subject to the statutory consents. Prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries and satisfy themselves in this regard.
