NEW TO MARKET.
Situated in a highly sought-after location in the heart of the Outdoor Capital of the UK. Lochiel Villa is a prestigious and elegant extended Victorian property. Generously proportioned throughout and in a superb position on the seafront with fabulous uninterrupted views over Loch Linnhe to the mountains beyond.

NEW TO MARKET.
Lochiel Villa is a prominent, elegant extended Victorian property with spacious rooms and many period qualities. Originally built around 1880 the property boasts character features such as sash and case windows with shutters, marble fireplaces, ornate cornicing and stunning pine staircase. The property was extended in the mid-1960s.

This semi-detached guest house is set in a superb central position on the shoreline of the Outdoor Capital of the UK. The town and wider Lochaber area offer some the most outstanding coast line scenery together with an abundance of wildlife. There is also a profusion of outdoor activities you, or your visitors, can enjoy. All services and amenities are available in town.

A detached, self-contained garden flat above a large double garage is included in the sale. Perfect for residential or holiday letting (subject to any necessary permissions).

This is a property with a warm and homely feel, currently trading as a successful Guest House operated by the current owners for around 40 years. With its repeat business Lochiel Villa has earned itself a fine reputation with visitors and locals alike. With full capacity trading and improved marketing, we the agents feel there is great scope to expand on this already impressive business.
