The area enjoys outstanding panoramic countryside views including Ben Fraochaidh, known as the heathery hill and with glimpses of Loch Linnhe in the distance from the higher ground. Originally a small shepherd's cottage dating from about 200 years ago, the property has been significantly and successfully extended over the centuries, the last major works being completed in 1991 and with thoughtful improvements and careful maintenance by the present owners since then. Interesting architectural details include crow-step elevations, castellated projection and a turret over the entrance. The sale of the property provides a fantastic lifestyle opportunity with it currently operating very successfully as a 4 Star Bed & Breakfast. Further details are available at www.bealach-house.co.uk .

A particular feature is the master bedroom suite with dressing room and en-suite incorporating circular shower housed in the turret over the main entrance door.
