Property Description


Situated in the popular residential village of Ballachulish, 28 West Laroch forms a charming, semi-detached cottage with excellent garden grounds. Dating back to around 1870, the property was originally built as a miner’s cottage for the famous Ballachulish slate quarry workers and has been extended over the years. Presenting a rare opportunity to purchase a traditional build, most of the cottages have long since been demolished and replaced with more modern builds. Whilst the property requires upgrading and modernisation, the cottage offers good sized accommodation over two floors and is fully double glazed. The large Jøtul wood burning stove in the lounge/dining room is a most attractive feature whilst the spacious grounds surrounding the cottage offer mature planting and off-street parking. Due to the size and location, the property would be ideally suited to a first time buyer, as a permanent home, as a holiday retreat or as a superb rental opportunity in a buoyant letting market.

Ballachulish is situated approximately 15 miles from Fort William and offers a range of amenities including supermarket, shops, hotel, primary school, bar with restaurant etc. The location, within the heart of spectacular Highland scenery, means that it is well placed to take advantage of the numerous leisure and pleasure activities which the area has to offer including water sports, skiing at Nevis Range and Glencoe, golf, mountain climbing and hill walking to name a few. The mountains of Glencoe are approximately 2 miles distant while water-sports can be enjoyed in Loch Leven which opens into Loch Linnhe and gives access westwards to the Inner Isles and eastwards to the Caledonian Canal.
