EPC Rating - D

Lying off the A82 road 5 miles north of Spean Bridge, The Heathers is surrounded by some of the finest scenery found within the Great Glen and benefits particularly from stunning views overlooking Loch Lochy. The local area boasts a wide range of outdoor activities including walking, cycling, climbing, golfing, sailing and fishing as well as being of considerable historical, geological and natural interest. The A82 road provides easy access to Fort William (14 miles) and Inverness (51 miles), both providing extensive shopping and leisure facilities. Mainline rail links are located nearby at Spean Bridge and further afield at Inverness where the airport services regular daily flights to London and other UK and European destinations.

The Heathers is set in just over 2.5 acres of grounds, patio, decked sun terrace and ample car parking space, all surrounded by breathtaking scenery. The grounds provide considerable scope for further development to either expand the current business or for a separate dwelling, subject to the appropriate permission.

The long main driveway approaches The Heathers from the north and combined with the swathe of trees and rhododendron bushes to the front provide great privacy and tranquillity, factors ably enhanced by the impressive backdrop courtesy of the steep mountain to the rear. A second driveway provides a gated approach from the south. The garden grounds extend to approximately 2.5 acres and have been sympathetically maintained to preserve their Highland character as well as their link to the past in railway history.

The property benefits from the addition of a covered rear walkway which incorporates a car port and a large storage shed which is fully insulated and has power. There is also ample parking for several vehicles.
