The crown jewel of the property is the incredible five-hectare White Loch which is currently leased to the local angling and fishing association.

‘The accommodation begins with an impressive oak front door and a reception hall with decorative fireplace and tripartite archway made of the same carved timber,’ reads the listing.

‘At present, the ground floor also includes a small kitchen and a living/dining room and breakfast room.

‘A huge open fireplace inset with polished copper as well as dark timber beams, a circular turret room, half tiled walls and large panelled windows give the rooms enormous character.
