Ballyoukan House is a traditional Scottish 18th century property which retains lots of its original features including sash & case astragal windows with working shutters and original wooden doors and floors.
The accommodation is an excellent mix of formal and informal. The large drawing room has a wonderful open fireplace and French windows which open directly onto garden; the dual aspect dining room also has an open fire while the sitting room benefits from a wood-burning stove and opens onto the well proportioned kitchen behind which is an office which would also do very well as a playroom. Upstairs are six/seven bedrooms, three of which are en-suite.
