Secluded loch-side house in Ross-shire

Tanglewood House is a very private country property on the headland of Loch Broom in Ross-shire, in Scotland. Built in the 1980s, the house has an unusual layout which allows for views across the loch from three sides and there are local stories that Bonnie Prince Charlie hid in a cave on this headland following the Jacobean defeat at Culloden.

Interior details are extraordinary: with solid oak arch-topped door with Loire chateau-moulded designs, herringbone ceiling panelling, and a striking curved staircase. There are open fireplaces and ceiling beams: a glass panel door from the drawing room leads to a cantilever staircase into the double aspect conservatory which, in turn, has access to the gardens. French windows from the dining area also lead out to a terrace at the rear of the house.

Accommodation in total comprises: entrance hall, drawing room, conservatory, dining room, kitchen, self-contained apartment, wine cellar, and three en-suite bedrooms on the first floor, plus a further bedroom suite and sitting room on the second floor.

Outside, the gardens are landscaped and the terrace has panoramic views out over Loch Broom towards Ullapool. The wild garden grounds are riddled with paths through the trees which have fabulous views of the loch and the mountains beyond. The small rugged beaches are reached by a steep path down to the water and a boat can be moored in the bay.

Planning consent has been granted for the erection of a house in the grounds which come to just under three acres.

The house is situated in a remote, secluded location still within easy reach of Ullapool which has a good range of amenities, and the A9 is also easily accessed. There is a ferry to Stornoway and the range of outdoor activities in this location is unrivalled: the Munros form a backdrop to the house. Inverness Airport has regular flights to London and Europe.

The guide price £695,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01463 719 171 or visit
