Property Description

Description
Ballochruin Farmhouse, Blane Cottage and Menteith Cottage are a trio of refurbished farmhouse and steading properties. The houses are completed in dressed red sandstone and cream painted harling and are all under re-slated roofs. The buildings are attached and arranged around a gravel courtyard with turning roundel.

The main property of the package is Ballochruin Farmhouse which is a fine principal family home which has been fully refurbished and provides excellent family and guest entertaining accommodation laid out over two light and bright and easily managed levels.

The secondary properties of Blane Cottage Menteith Cottage are attached and are completed to a similarly high level of finish and specification.
