It is one of just four homes overlooking Doune Bay on the Knoydart Peninsula, and enjoys a rare level of isolation in the British Isles.

The peninsula is only accessible by boat or via the ferry to Inverie, which connects with a seven-mile stretch of road. The scattered communities on the peninsula access this road on foot.

The house was built in 1997 and has been designed to make the most of the magnificent views over the Sound of Sleat to Skye.

With four bedrooms and three reception rooms, the property is spacious enough to suit families and those who enjoy entertaining.
