Property Description



Quietly situated in Drumsallie, on the edge of Loch Eil, Railway Cottage forms a most charming, detached cottage, located on the West Highland Line. Enjoying stunning rural views, the property would ideally suit railway enthusiasts or, due to its size and location, make a fantastic permanent home. Whilst upgrading and modernisation would be advantageous, the property benefits from two, solid fuel, stoves and has recently been upgraded, with UPVC windows and external doors. Following works, the cottage would also present an idyllic holiday retreat, or exciting investment, for the extremely buoyant, self-catering market. A spacious, floored attic, with five Velux windows, flooding the area with natural light, provides a superb extra space, reached by a fixed ladder, with light and power. In addition, Railway Cottage has the advantage of generous grounds to all sides, two large garden sheds and a track, albeit, overgrown at the moment, up to the property.

Enjoying rugged mountain views, in an area renowned for its natural beauty, and complemented by an abundance of wildlife, the property lies on the ‘Road to the Isles’ at the head of Loch Eil. The area of Drumsallie evokes a real rural feeling generally attributed to very remote locations, yet the property is only 8 miles from the village of Corpach which offers a range of local amenities, while Fort William is some 11 miles distant.
