A secluded three bedroom Highland cottage is on sale for the same price as a one bedroom flat in Edinburgh

If you’d rather spend your hard earned cash on a Highland country bolthole rather than a city, then this charming cottage may be what you’re looking for.

The new owners of No 18 Lochussie can escape from it all thanks to the unspoiled, rural location, which includes access to Loch Ussie – a Special Area of Conservation.
