The Steading, which was completed in approximately 2006, has been used by the current owner as the main residence and provides comfortable accommodation retaining character and charm and features original reclaimed wood from Kingussie Church Hall including the internal church doors, original flooring and the timber cladding which has been used in the handmade kitchen units and in the en-suite bathroom.

Viewing is a must to really appreciate this superb location and the potential these properties offer to a purchaser depending on their own needs, whether it be a home for themselves or a home with income potential and the workshop/office provides scope for development/conversion.

Directions - From Inverness take the A82 to Drumnadrochit, just before you come into the village, you will see a signpost for Drumbuie and you should take this right turn. Continue up the hill until you see a sign for Mid Drumbuie on the left hand side and you should take this turn and follow the access track along and you will reach Boxys Croft initially.
