FAMED AUTHOR’S FORMER DWELLING FOR SALE AS GUEST HOUSE

Natallie Sexton 10 January 2013

A Guest House which was once the home of late author Alistair MacLean, has come to the market with Scottish agents Bruce & Co, who invite offers in the region of £749,950.

Mr. Maclean wrote popular thrillers, most famously The Guns of Navarone, Ice Station Zebra and Where Eagles Dare, which starred big names such as Clint Eastwood and Richard Burton.

Now a Guest House, Torguish House, which is situated just outside of Inverness, has a 5 star rating from Trip Advisor and offers both bed and breakfast and self catering accommodation.

The self catering aspect is made up of 4 well appointed self catering cottages, which were added to the property around 1994. The cottages were converted from the original stable block and hayloft, and sit separately from the main house, with their own parking area and private court yard.

There are 8 en-suite letting bedrooms, which comprise of three family rooms, one twin room and four double rooms, two of which have stunning four-poster beds. The entire staircase features a stunning Scottish landscape mural by Stephen Route.

Torguish House has owners’ accommodation with its own entrance. This has a large en-suite master bedroom, large dining kitchen, an office and a storage room. Both the office and storage rooms can be used as additional bedrooms if so desired.

Bruce & Co’s Jamie Gibb said: “The sale of Torguish House offers a rare opportunity to purchase a high quality, beautifully presented Highland property, which is trading successfully but with potential for expansion of the business. It benefits highly from its stunning location just four miles South of Inverness.”
