In addition to the main house, there are three stables, with running water and mains electricity which have huge potential for conversion into holiday lets, 2 garages, an outside garden office with mains electric, a hay store/log store and 2.3 acres of land.

There is the possibility that this plot could be converted into a thriving business due to its stunning location, there is plenty of land to add log cabins or yurts and would also appeal to anyone who is interested in running a self contained small holding as the paddock area would be ideal for livestock, with plenty of room for vegetable patches or animal enclosures.

The main house would make a beautiful family home or could equally be run as a lucrative B&B due to the stunning and unique location and with the potential for converting the existing stables, there is no limit to the future possibilities that this plot has to offer.

The property is located in Auchterawe, with the popular village of Fort Augustus just over 2 miles away, which is situated on the most southern tip of Loch Ness on the Great Glen Way.

The historic and scenic hamlet is a popular tourist destination, lying on the impressive 60 mile lone Caledonian Canal, halfway between Fort William and Inverness, Fort Augustus offers spectacular views down Loch Ness and is a paradise for keen walkers and cyclists with many beautiful walks around the area, the most popular being The Great Glen Way.

Visitors can explore the surrounding countryside by cruising Loch Ness, home to the world famous Loch Ness Monster, or take a trip to nearby Urquhart Castle, Glen Affric or simply sit and watch the boats navigating the locks.

A thriving tourist hot spot which has many restaurants, shops and breathtaking views in any direction, Fort Augustus also benefits from excellent schooling, both primary and secondary, with Glenurquhart High School only 30 minutes away, a direct bus route for which is available. The village can be easily accessed via bus from either Inverness or Fort William and there is a school bus in operation right outside the house.

Both Inverness, “the capital of the Highlands” and Fort William, “the outdoor capital of the UK” are less than an hours drive away, as is the stunning and breathtaking Eilean Donan Castle, reputably the most photographed castle in Scotland, on the road to Skye, also well worth a visit.

Travel Directions
From Inverness, follow the A82 Fort William road along the shores of Loch Ness. After the sign telling you that you are in Fort Augustus, take the turn off to the right marked Jenkins Park and Auchterawe, there is a Miller Stewart For Sale Board at the junction. Follow the road as it veers left and turn right towards Auchterawe, past the forestry commission, through the forest for about 2 miles and Whinhill House is on the left hand side.

What our clients say

Extremely Professional

Dear Harry
Jean McCann recently dealt with the marketing of my flat.

As well as being extremely professional she was very helpful and guided me through the whole process.

Jean was very supportive and always in contact with me re updates about the sale and I felt nothing was too much trouble for her and would highly recommend Jean to anyone thinking about selling their property.

Start to finish he was absolutely excellent

Just wanted to briefly record our thanks having used Harry to sell our property in Elgin.

From start to finish he was absolutely excellent. Nothing was ever too much trouble.

The photos and property description he did were both spot on and involved him in a lot of extra work, moving furniture around etc to get the presentation as good as possible.

Overall, Harry and his team went overboard to make things easy for us as we were not in Elgin during the sale process. This involved all sorts of extras one would not expect from your typical Estate Agent.

Nice to find such good old fashioned customer service in this cut price, anything’s good enough age!

We would have no hesitation in recommending Harry as first choice to anyone selling a property in his area and wish him continued success in the future.
