Property Description


Traditional Stone Cottage

The subjects of sale form a charming, traditional stone-built cottage, set in attractive, mature, garden grounds situated on the banks of the River Moidart, at Kinlochmoidart. Dating back to around the 18th Century,  Burnside has been lovingly upgraded over the years, and still boasts many of its original features from its 1883 modifications by the renowned, Scottish Architect, William Leiper, namely, wooden shutters, sash and case windows, Leipers’ signature staircase and ornamental fireplaces. Due to the size and location, the property would be suited to a number of uses including a  fantastic permanent home, idyllic holiday home or as an exciting investment for the very buoyant self-catering holiday market.

Burnside is situated in Glenmoidart, a tranquil and unspoilt area, located at the east head of Loch Moidart, within the settlement of Kinlochmoidart. The property is ideally situated to enjoy all the area has to offer, with fantastic walks, fishing and outdoor pursuits. Locally amenities are available in the village of Acharacle, six miles away and Glenuig, five miles.
