The ideal home for Nessie hunters

One of the reasons thousands of tourists flock to the Highlands each year is because they hope to catch a glimpse of Nessie, the Loch Ness monster.

While The Manse in Lochend doesn’t come with a guarantee that you will spot the elusive creature, thanks to the unspoilt south-facing views of the loch the house enjoys, if Nessie does deem to make an appearance there’s a good chance of spotting her from here.

The Manse is a substantial home, which until recently was run successfully as a B&B. It is attached to Bona Church which is likely to come on to the property market this year, potentially providing the opportunity to acquire both properties.

The acquisition of the church further enhances the versatility of The Manse with the option of creating a holiday letting unit, retail space or office accommodation.

As well as enjoying spectacular views, the property sits just above the main route through the Great Glen, which makes it easy for tourists and potential guests to find.

The house has many lovely traditional features but could perhaps do with a bit of a modern makeover, which is reflected in the asking price of offers over £310,000.

The manse has well laid out accommodation spread over three floors. Within these rooms there are lovely traditional features such as original fireplaces, timber floors and cornicing.

The accommodation includes three reception rooms and six bedrooms. When run as a B&B, the three first floor en-suite bedrooms provided guest accommodation, while the second floor with its three bedrooms and family bathroom provided owners’ accommodation.

With wonderful views of the loch and Aldourie Castle, and situated six miles from Inverness in one direction and six miles in the other direction to Drumnadrochit and Urquhart Castle, this property has bags of potential for those looking for a lifestyle home.
