Sporting estate in the Highlands

Monachyle Beag estate lies close to the Highland village of Balquidder in the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park. The property comprises an excellent residential, farming and sporting estate which extends to nearly 1,000 acres of pretty north Stirlingshire countryside.

At the core of the estate is the farmhouse, which sits in an elevated position above Loch Voil and provides a practical, spacious family home. Full of character, the house has open fireplaces and great reception rooms with magnificent views.

Accommodation comprises the farmhouse kitchen, sitting room, dining room and utility room, plus four bedrooms and the family bathroom upstairs.

Outside the attractive gardens include a kitchen garden with raised beds, fruit bushes and a greenhouse. A stone outbuilding lies immediately to the south east of the house.

Balquidder lies to the north of the Trossachs and Loch Voil, and nearby Strathyre offers a village shop, post office, primary school and a hotel while Callander, just 13 miles, has more extensive shopping and amenities.
