Real Estate Friday

A Scottish west highland sporting estate.

A Highland shooting lodge in a magnificent position on the north shores of Loch Torridon with 4 cottages, estate buildings and a boathouse, including salmon and trout fishing on the north bank of the River Torridon. The Estate of Torridon once formed part of the possessions of the Lords of the Isles and extended to over 17,000 acres including one of the best deer forests in the west Highlands. Torridon House now stands in about 234 acres but still holds a prominent position on the northern shores of Upper Loch Torridon. Torridon House was built with the famous Torridon red sandstone in 1876, designed for family living but large enough to support sporting parties during the shooting and fishing seasons. Further to the main house are 4 estates cottages, a boathouse, and a fully restored hydro electric plant. There is fishing on the North bank of the River Torridon and salmon rights on Loch An Lasgaiche.

This picture and the one just above of the little house are my two favorites. I enjoy the pictures of the residence but I love the solitude that these last pictures offer.

Hello Monica,
Je connais bien le sud de l'Angleterre, mais je ne suis jamais allée en Ecosse, ce sera pour un prochain voyage... En tout cas, j'aime beaucoup ce château que tu présentes, ça donne envie d'y passer quelques heures!!!
Merci pour ton gentil commentaire et à très bientôt!
Amicalement, Kenza
