Situated on a 300-acre Scottish Highland estate, these two historic properties, The Fish House and The Byre, lie close to a picturesque, natural harbour and enjoy stunning views across this wild and unspoilt area. The Fish House is set over three floors, whilst The Byre is a stone barn conversion. Both stand detached on the Rispond Lodge Estate, which is accessed via a short lane off the spectacular route known as the North Coast 500 in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The Fish House (ref UKC1398) is a listed building that has been lovingly restored to an exceptionally high standard whilst retaining many of its original and unique features. Part of the building was originally used to store the nets and fishing material at the height of the herring boom. Wooden beams, solid oak flooring and a large feature wood burner provide a traditional feel with a contemporary ambience. The main living area is on the first floor and runs the length of the house. There are four beautifully presented en-suite bedrooms as well as a second living room.
The Byre (ref UKC1399) has a pretty open-plan living room and dining area, with feature wood burner. There is a bright, well-equipped kitchen at the rear, and two large double en-suite bedrooms. A spiral staircase leads up to the first floor second living room, which has a steeply coombed ceiling and spans the length of the cottage.
This secluded base is a haven for wildlife. Deer, otters, eagles and a wide variety of bird life are regularly seen in the region and seals are known to frequent the harbour. For outdoor enthusiasts the local area is second to none. Kayaking, sailing, fishing, hill-walking, bird watching and golf are all available right on the doorstep. The nearest beach, just a short stroll from the house is outstanding, and is a perfect crescent of white sand bounded by rocks and hills. Beach 200 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles. These properties can be booked together to sleep up to 12 guests.
