Built in the Arts and Crafts style in contrasting red sandstone, the house welcomes guests at a stately covered entrance leading to a grand hall and a beautiful pitch pine staircase. The ground floor rooms are served by a kitchen and family room and include a drawing room, snooker room and study, while there are eight bedrooms, two en-suite, a further four bathrooms/WC, and a remarkably spacious new morning room, built using oak from the estate’s own woodlands.
Within the courtyard, there is a two-bedroom cottage with two conservatories overlooking the lochan, which would be ideal as staff or guest accommodation or as a holiday let, and there are a number of outbuildings in varying states of repair.
The ruined castle, classified as a medieval tower house by Historic Environment Scotland, was three storeys high in its pomp in the 16th century and had a commanding position looking over the loch.
The undulating, verdant grounds of the estate contain extensive formal gardens, paddocks, a lochan, a river with fishing rights, and ancient woodland which is carpeted with bluebells in spring.
Despite its quiet and rural location, with Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park as a dramatic backdrop, the estate is just five miles from the town of Helensburgh and only 19 miles from Glasgow Airport.
