Early 19th century Scottish lodge with Ben Nevis views

Erracht Lodge is a wonderful two-storey stone-built lodge in need of total refurbishment just eight miles from Fort William in Scotland. Currently divided into two, with the principal accommodation at the front and a self-contained annexe to the rear, the house could once again become a wonderful family home.

The property retains many period features although it hasn’t been officially listed; these include an elegant period staircase and a sliding wooden ‘contraption’ designed to bar the door to unwelcome visitors, probably dating back to the 18th century.

The house can be bought with its two outbuildings, the first being a barn with a hayloft which has been used as residential accommodation and the second a long stone range which has lots of potential for conversion to a holiday let.

The Lodge stands in private, fenced, mature gardens and the land comes to nearly 50 acres. The views are extremely picturesque, extending to the north face of Ben Nevis with the Caledonian Canal in the foreground. The property is available as a whole or in two lots. Fort William is just eight miles away and has good amenities.
