Built around 1830, Sean Sgoil is the former school of the Scottish hamlet of Glen Dochart. The three/four-bedroom property has been extended from its original footprint and now offers spacious accommodation including the generous main sitting room with its lovely stone fireplace. The house has also acquired a galleried landing more recently which leads to two bedrooms and a washroom. The breakfasting kitchen opens out onto a courtyard at the back of the house and has a wood-burning stove.

Accommodation in total comprises entrance porch, hall, sitting room, study/bedroom four, family bathroom, double bedroom and the breakfasting kitchen. Upstairs are the landing, the master bedroom with a smaller bathroom.

The main garden lies to the back of the house and has an expanse of lawn by the courtyard and the burn – the garden is enclosed by a stone wall and also features ample storage space in the outbuildings. To the south of the garden is around 0.65 acres of hill land which is bordered by the burn and provides access to fantastic hillwalking.
