19th century Victorian mansion in the Highlands

Lemlair House is an historic Victorian mansion built in 1876 for the Munro clan on the shores of the Cromarty Firth in the Highlands, 15 miles from Inverness. The property retains some notable features including high ceilings, cornicing, pitch pine doors, a Munro clan fireplace, stained glass windows, and what is thought to be a Rennie Mackintosh fireplace in the sitting room.

Accommodation includes the double aspect drawing room with bay window, double aspect sitting room, dining room and kitchen with granite workshops and Aga on the ground floor, and nine bedrooms across the first and second floors, some with vaulted ceilings and fireplaces, and lovely views over the Firth.

Outside are useful storage sheds and a game larder. The gardens extend to over five acres with terraced lawns and colourful planting.
