It has retained many of its original design features, including impressive turrets, ornate cornicing, a log burning stove and uniquely beautiful cathedral style windows.

To add to the whole attractive package, the sale of this property also includes three individual apartments – two with two bedrooms and one with one bedroom – offering huge potential to the buyer to reap the benefits of additional income via year round or holiday letting.

Not only is the house itself visually attractive, it is also set in an acre of mature grounds.

On the market with Perth-based Land and Estate Agents Bell Ingram, Kinlochlaich House boasts five bedrooms, a kitchen and dining room, an office and a large reception hall as well as three other apartments.

Carl Warden, of Bell Ingram, said: “Kinlochlaich House offers potential buyers a unique opportunity to purchase their own piece of history.

“It also offers the best of both worlds in that it is situated in the beautiful surroundings of Loch Appin and the nearby hills, while still being within easy driving distance of bustling Oban.”

Appin is a charming village, famed as the place which inspired iconic Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson to pen his novel ‘Kidnapped’.

It has a village hall, primary school, doctors surgery, church and garden centre, and the nearby large towns of Oban and Fort William offer further amenities, including leisure facilities, supermarkets and hospitals.
