Property Description


An imposing detached, period property located in the heart of the village of Spean Bridge, enjoying stunning countryside and mountain views, set in spacious, mature private grounds.

Dating from the early 1900s, Birchwood retains many of the original features and offers a fantastic family home full of character and charm.

Birchwood forms a most desirable and imposing, detached period property, positioned in the heart of Spean Bridge village with stunning views overs its grounds towards Aonach Mor and the Grey Corrie mountains. Dating back to around 1902 and retaining certain original features, the sale of Birchwood offers an exciting opportunity to purchase a superb family home in a prominent position.

In very good order both internally and externally, the property boasts large, bright rooms and benefits from sash-and-case windows and oil fired central heating. The current owners have sympathetically upgraded the property to include more modern additions such as the kitchen and bathroom suites, in turn complimenting the original impressive pitch pine staircase, moulded plaster cornicing and picture rails.

The flexible and spacious accommodation on offer would provide the successful purchasers with a wonderful family home, idyllic holiday retreat or a business opportunity as a self-catering prospect in a very buoyant market.


Spean Bridge is a very desirable location offering a wide range of amenities for a village, including a local Spar shop, hotels, cafes, bistro, restaurant and golf course. The village connects to the rest of The Highlands through its own train station, bus links and main “A” road. Additional amenities are available in Fort William, 10 miles away. The local area provides the opportunity to access a wealth of outdoor activities including the Great Glen and Nevis Range Ski Area, downhill and cross country mountain bike riding, hill walking, sailing, or exploring the footpaths along the Caledonian Canal only a few minutes drive from the property. Fort Augustus and the famous Loch Ness are about a 30 minute drive north.
