This Highlands country house is an ideal retreat for a fishing-mad buyer
Invercassley House is an 18th century Scottish country property which has been recently refurbished to provide really comfortable accommodation, set in the beautiful Highlands countryside, which comes with three weeks fishing on the River Oykel per year.
A handsome entrance hall leads to the drawing room, which 27 feet long and 14 feet wide and has an attractive working fireplace and far-reaching views – it’s a wonderful place to entertain. Other reception rooms include the dining/billiard room, the study and the large conservatory, which leads off the drawing room. The kitchen is well-appointed and comes with a four-door Aga. Upstairs are five bedrooms, all with south or west facing views, and three bathrooms.
Outside are a dedicated rod room and an old stone barn with oodles of potential for conversion. The gardens are pretty and mature, with a small orchard to the rear. There is also an opportunity to create a water garden using the stream which runs below the house.
The Lower Oykel Fishings extend from the Oykel Falls above Oykel Bridge and the Einig Falls on the River Einig tributary to the tail of the Inveroykel Pool at the head of the Kyle of Sutherland. The fishings comprise a share in the Lower Oykel fishings, entitling the shareholder to fish three beat weeks annually on the Lower River Oykel
The fishings are seven miles in length including 64 named pools and runs fished in four beats; each beat has a three rod limit. The statutory season runs from 11th January to 30th September. The Lower Oykel fishings are let weekly by the beat with rents varying with the time of year. Additional fishing can be taken on the Rivers Cassley and Carron
Located on the edge of the peaceful village of Rosehall, Invercassley is also well placed for stalking and walked-up grouse shooting in north Ross-shire and Sutherland. Inverness is just an hour by car.
