Tenure: Freehold

Greshornish House has a spectacular position set in 9.5 acres of attractive grounds over looking Loch Greshornish on the north side of the Isle of
Skye. A 4 bedroom cottage is also available by separate negotiation. EPC rating: E

Greshornish House is built of white painted harled stone under a slate roof. Internally the accommodation is comfortable and well laid out. The panelled entrance hall leads off to the drawing room, billiard room and morning room. In 2006 the Victorian kitchens were converted into the current dining room which has been linked to the main house with a south facing conservatory. To the rear are two kitchens; one domestic and one commercial and an office as well as WCs and storerooms. The main bedrooms are on the first floor and comprise six en suite bedrooms. There are two further en suite bedrooms on the second floor and two smaller bedrooms approached from a rear staircase, both of which have small en suite bathrooms.

There are extensive lawns to the south and east. There is a tennis court to the side of the lawn beside Garden Cottage (available separately) and adjacent to Greshornish House is a walled garden. At the rear of the house is a laundry and a boiler room. To the south and west of Greshornish House is an area of open ground and woodland which rises up to an elevated site which has previously had planning permission for the construction of a single dwelling house. There are impressive marine facilities including large fully clad sheds incorporating three bays, an office, WC, kitchenette and mezzanine storage above. There is also a slipway and access to a pontoon jetty.

Garden Cottage which is situated close by on the water's edge is available by separate negotiation.

It is about 2.5 miles from the settlement of Edinbane and about 17 miles from Portree.

The Isle of Skye is one of Scotland's best known islands and was recently voted 4th best island in the world by National Geographic magazine.
Portree is the principal town on the island and provides a good range of shops and professional services. Skye became much more accessible with the completion of the Skye Bridge in the late 1990's. There are also ferry links from Mallaig to Armadale in the south of the island and from Uig to the Outer Hebrides in the north. There are excellent outdoor and sporting opportunities on Skye and the mainland, with abundant sailing and watersports, walking and mountaineering to suit all abilities as well as stalking, shooting and fishing throughout the year.
