Property Description


The Old Manse forms a ‘C listed’ property which dates back to 1827, and was designed and built by Thomas Telford as the Church of Scotland manse, when building the Parliamentary Churches. Extended over the years to create a large family home, the property boasts much of its original charm such as pitch pine cladding, feature fireplaces and south facing bay windows. Currently in need of renovation and refurbishment, the sale would offer the successful purchaser an exciting restoration project. In addition to the property are the large garden grounds  and a stone barn, which subject to planning could provide further accommodation.

The property is quietly situated at the edge of the popular village of Strontian, which is located at the head of Loch Sunart amidst spectacular Highland scenery. The village has a range of amenities, with shops, hotels, post office, doctor’s surgery, primary school and secondary school. Further facilities and amenities are available at Fort William some 25 miles distant. The area provides an ideal base to take advantage of all the West Highlands have to offer, including skiing, sailing, walking and fishing to name but a few.
