Two chances to own a home with fabulous views of Loch Ness, writes Susan Welsh
In the Highlands, many homeowners open their doors and offer bed and breakfast to guests.
If you don’t want others sharing your space, but like the idea of making a bit of extra cash from the thousands of tourists who flock here throughout the year, then Loch Ness View Croft and Cottage may fit the bill nicely.
The two properties, owned by the same person, sit just a stone’s throw apart and both enjoy spectacular views over Loch Ness. One could be used as the main home, the other as a holiday let.
Loch Ness View Croft, priced at offers over £275,000, is a charming extended and fully renovated former croft cottage that sits in an elevated position above the village of Lochend, some six miles from Inverness city centre.
The accommodation in this traditional cottage includes, on the ground floor, an open-plan kitchen/dining/living room with a wood-burning stove and two bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities. The first floor has a double bedroom with separate bathroom and hall/dressing area.
Close by is Loch Ness View Cottage, on the market at offers over £330,000, an attractive single-storey house enjoying the same spectacular views over Loch Ness.
Currently used as a holiday let, the accommodation here includes a bright and spacious sitting room that takes full advantage of the cottage’s stunning setting. There is also a separate kitchen/dining room, three bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities, and a family shower room.
Phiddy Robertson, handling the sale of both properties on behalf of CKD Galbraith, said: “It’s very unusual for two neighbouring properties such as these to come to the market at the same time.
“As they are also in such a desirable location, with the most fantastic views and being only a short commute from Inverness, the sale offers a brilliant holiday let opportunity.
“Either of the properties could be successfully run as a holiday let but would both make wonderful main or second homes as well. Although the properties are on the market as two separate sales, potential buyers looking for a source of income wouldn’t have to look much farther than their own doorstep.
“There is also the potential to acquire a nearby plot with planning permission for a substantial house and approximately nine acres of croft land.
“The sales represent a really good opportunity for those keen to expand their property portfolio.”
