Ar Dachaidh is a very special period property with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside ten miles from the Kyle of Lochalsh. The current owners have upgraded the interior in recent years and the house has retained many key period features including cornicing, fireplaces, raised skirting and window shutters – the sitting room has a marble fireplace and a wood-burning stove.
The formal dining room is spacious and the dining kitchen has been modernised and has an original gun cabinet with servants’ bells still attached. There is also a huge cellar which covers the entire footprint of the property and offers great potential. Upstairs are four well-proportioned double bedrooms (two are en-suite) and a family bathroom.

Outside are two acres of gardens and grounds which contain a number of mature trees and shrubs including copper beech trees. A number of outhouses are useful as is a greenhouse.
Ar Dachaidh is just four miles from the popular village of Dornie and Eilean Donan Castle. Plockton, probably one of the most well-loved villages in the Highlands, is also nearby. Buses travel to Glasgow, Portree and Inverness from the bottom of the road.
