Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Enjoying arguably the most commanding views in Fort William, over the Caledonian Canal and Great Glen to Ben Nevis and the Nevis Range of mountains, Quaich Cottage forms a most desirable detached villa set in sizeable grounds. Attractively decorated and in excellent order throughout, the sale offers an ideal opportunity to acquire either a generous family home or to take over the current bed and breakfast business - with high reputation and website in place.

Benefiting from double glazing and oil fired central heating, the newly fitted carpets, floor coverings, light fittings, curtains and blinds throughout the property are included in the sale.

Upper Banavie is a small crofting community on the banks of the Caledonian Canal and while the area offers a quiet, rural location, it is only 4 miles from Fort William with all its amenities, schools etc. The area also provides an ideal base to take advantage of the numerous leisure and pleasure activities the region - now known as 'The Outdoor Capital of the UK' - has to offer.
