A wonderful period property for special occasions and social gatherings, surrounded by open countryside and within easy reach of the outdoor attractions of the Scottish Highlands.
Situated among the 20,000 acres of the Inverbroom Estate, this former shooting lodge enjoys a peaceful location in one of the most beautiful valleys of Wester Ross, only half a mile from the head of Loch Broom.
