Lochside is a beautifully presented detached house in a spectacular south facing coastal setting with panoramic views across Loch Nevis (Loch of Heaven) and of the the surrounding forests and mountains. Whilst maintaining the appearance of a traditional one and a half storey West Highland home, this individually designed property was completed in 2007. It is in excellent order with contemporary fixtures and fittings, oak and tiled flooring and oak doors throughout, and benefits from double glazing, zoned under-floor heating and log burning stoves in both the kitchen and the lounge. The property also benefits from a fast broadband connection.
With its superb elevated waterfront seaside location Lochside Knoydart is currently a successful seaside holiday cottage let. The versatile accommodation would also make a wonderful family home or bed and breakfast opportunity. A slate roofed garden studio with oak flooring, contemporary lighting and fast broadband access offers further useful work or craft space.
Lochside is situated in the village of Inverie on the Knoydart peninsula. The village has a school, nursery, post office, tea room , a pub, library and the ferry pier.
Knoydart is often described as one of the last wilderness areas in Britain, a habitat which offers a haven for a wide variety of wildlife including otters, seals, pine marten, deer, wild goats, dolphins, porpoises and whales. There is a tremendous variety of birdlife, both resident and migratory, from waders, cormorants and herons to the magnificent eagle. Both golden eagle and sea eagle can be spotted soaring in the Knoydart sky.
In the night skies the Milky Way is clearly visible and the Northern Lights when conditions are favourable.
The stunning scenery surrounding Lochside ranges from forest and mountains to sandy and rocky sea loch shoreline. The waters of Loch Nevis are ideal for canoeing and kayaking, and there are moorings close by for larger boats. The surrounding hills have magnificent high level walks, including three Munros and there is a network of forest and coastal tracks which provide easy low level walking.
