Situated at the head of Dhivach Glen, Dhivach Lodge is an exceptional Highlands property steeped in history. The property is very near Loch Ness, and has been famous as a retreat for a number of well-known artists and writers including Millais, JM Barrie and Captain Scott.

The property itself has an impressive triple aspect dining room with a great vaulted ceiling while the sitting room features beautiful bay window with views out over the gorge. Upstairs are five bedrooms including the master suite complete with a balcony and a magnificent studio, also overlooking the gorge.

Accommodation in total comprises: the hall, sitting room, dining room, dining kitchen, studio, bathroom and five bedrooms. A timber-decked terrace is located off the kitchen.

 

Outside, the Coach House has been sympathetically developed, and offers a hall and open plan kitchen/dining area, two bedrooms and a mezzanine sitting area – this is currently a successful holiday let.

The grounds comprise just over nine acres and include the Dhivach Burn and Falls; the falls are 30m high and lie in the wooded gorge below the house. Ancient woodland includes magnificent oak and birch, while the burn forms the eastern boundary.

Dhivach Lodge sits in the dramatic hills which rise up from Loch Ness on the Great Glen fault line, amongst some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery. The woodlands and waterfalls provide a perfect habitat for a wonderful range of flora and fauna.

Drumnadrochit is just two miles and has good local shops, while Inverness is 15 miles and the airport 25 miles away.

The guide price is £850,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01463 719171 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
