The ultimate Highland getaway – on the market for £240,000

The unusual property is on the Knoydart Peninsula
The unusual property is on the Knoydart Peninsula

They appear like two dots on a remote loch-side mountainous location, but these unusual properties – a nine-mile sail from the nearest village – have gone on the market for almost quarter of a million pounds.

Anyone seeking to escape the rat race need look no further than the two wooden chalets at Broamisaig on the Knoydart peninsula.

In fact, just getting to the front door is an adventure, as the site can only be reached by a hike over rough terrain or a 40-minute boat trip.

Known for its rugged beauty and outdoor pursuits, Broamisaig comprises the two chalets, with one providing accommodation to sleep six and the other a workshop.

The entire property extends to 325 acres and the two buildings enjoy uninterrupted views of the surrounding hills and seascape, with access to a small bay below Cnoc na Dubh-ghlaic Bige, a stretch of coastline and an established woodland.

Property consultancy Bidwells is bringing the property to the market at offers over £240,000.

Rural property specialist Angus Kelly said: “Broamisaig forms part of the Knoydart Peninsula and access to the property is most easily gained by boat, with Mallaig about 40 minutes’ sail away.

“It’s a remarkable location with magical views and this is a truly unique opportunity to purchase a sizeable piece of hill ground and woodland on Knoydart.

“It is the ideal getaway for those who love seclusion amongst an abundance of flora and fauna on land and sea.”

With stunning, uninterrupted views across Loch Nevis, seashore access and two kilometres of coastline, the property comprises 71 hectares of open hill ground, 60 hectares of fenced woodland and is being marketed as the ideal base for sailing activities with a small stone jetty – accessible at high water – and mooring in place.

The village of Inverie, which also sits several miles away, boasts the remotest pub in mainland Britain, The Old Forge.

There is also a tearoom, a small shop selling basic groceries, the Knoydart Foundation Office, the village hall and the post office.

Inverie primary school and nursery is also in the village.

The Knoydart area suffered heavily during the Highland Clearances, which saw the population drop from around 1,000 in the 18th century to just over 100.
