Property Details

Kerrow House was built in the 1770’s as a hunting lodge for the Chisholm family. The house was extended further in the 1800’s and was once the home of Neil Gunn, the celebrated Scottish author. Kerrow House has nine bedrooms and there are a further 4 self catering lodges within the grounds. Possible development potential.

Situated in the middle of approximately 12 acres of mature wooded grounds with a riverside setting Kerrow is a lovely example of a traditional Lodge. Currently being run as a highly successful self catering/Bed and Breakfast business it also offers the potential to expand the existing business or develop a new dwelling within the grounds (subject to planning).

Within Kerrow House the current owners have 3 letting bedrooms, plus a self contained wing (known as Stalker’s), within the main house. There are two further cottages and two chalets. The property is within easy reach of many of the Highland’s most popular tourist destinations, including Loch Ness, Glen Affric and Inverness. If required the house could easily be returned, as a whole, to a private family home. Subject to statutory consents there is scope to build an additional cottage within the grounds and, if granted, this will offer further flexibility with the option of using this as the owner’s accommodation and letting the entire main house, together with the trout fishing on the River Glass. The current owners have invested heavily to maintain and update the property. Kerrow is a unique property that offers an ideal work/life balance with enormous potential to offer fully-catered accommodation
if required.

 

Kerrow House is of stone construction under a slate roof. From the main public road, an asphalt driveway, forming part of the property, leads through pasture land to gates opening onto a tree-lined drive leading to a turning circle at the front of the house.
