Scottish loch-side island estate for sale

The Benbuie Estate is a small estate on the island of Mull in the Scottish Western Isles. At the heart of the estate is the hill of the same name, whose summit dominated the skyline above the lodge – the land is mainly given over to grazing for sheep, and woodland, and there are rights to fish for salmon, sea trout and all other trout in the two lochs on the hill and in the burn, where there may be the odd sea trout.

The main residence on the estate is Benbuie Lodge which has extensive well-proportioned accommodation over three floors with six bedrooms and spacious reception rooms.

Outside the Lodge a lawn gives way to a paddock and the burn runs along the western garden boundary – the house sits in an extremely private position.

The estate also comes with Benbuie Cottage and Cameron farmhouse which can be let – the farmhouse currently requires some modernisation and further stone outbuildings have great potential.

In addition there is Rose Cottage which is a ruined cottage not far from the farmhouse, and Benbuie Hill itself which comes with its own stalking, shooting and fishing rights – all of these properties are being offered as separate lots with accompanying parcels of land, or the estate is being offered as a whole.

Loch Buie sits on the south east coast of Mull, and Craignure, 14 miles away, offers good local amenities. The mainland can be reached by the Ferry from Craignure to Oban.

The guide price for the whole estate is £1.55m. For further information please contact Savills on 0131 247 3700 or visit
