Strathkyle Lodge is an extremely private property which was set up as a small shooting lodge on the shores of a loch. Built in 1869, the property was subsequently extended in 1883 and 1934. Only a small number of families have owned the house and it’s a well kept secret because of its secluded location.
The house itself offers over 400sq m of accommodation over two levels and is in need of some modernisation. The house has good reception rooms including sitting room with stunning views of the loch, drawing room and dining room, and the dine-in kitchen has lots of space and an Aga. There are three bedrooms on the ground floor and three bedrooms on the first floor of the house.
The property also comes with a gatehouse which has three bedrooms and lots of good period features.

The front of the lodge overlooks the private loch and beyond to the uninterrupted views.

There is great walking, hiking, golfing, fishing, shooting and stalking – there is trout fishing on the private loch on the grounds and salmon fishing is available for two rods on the Kyle.
The villages of Bonar Bridge and Ardgay are nearby for local amenities and Inverness, about an hour away by car, is the capital of the Highlands.
