    About this property

    • Sheildaig Farm was built in 1804 and enjoys a quiet elevated position on the hillside at the southern end of Loch Lomond.
      The property is just a short drive from the shores of the Loch and accessed from a private rhododendron lined lane.

      This detached grey sandstone farmhouse has been sympathetically modified and upgraded forming excellent, well presented and proportioned family accommodation set around a cobbled courtyard.

      Access to the courtyard is via a gravel driveway with parking for several cars, and through a gated archway. The principal entrance into the house is through double doors into the conservatory which successfully doubles as the reception hall; this then leads into the main body of the house. The accommodation is all on one level and at its heart is the family room with open plan kitchen. The sitting area is light and bright thanks to windows to the side and there are fitted storage cupboards. The kitchen is contemporary in style and includes a range of floor and wall cabinets, integrated appliances, a peninsula unit/breakfast bar which divides the kitchen and living space and a door which leads to the courtyard. Off an inner hallway is a bedroom with en suite shower room, family bathroom and two storage cupboards. The dining room accesses the breakfast room/second conservatory and enjoys lovely views over the garden. Of special note is the impressive drawing room which has windows on two sides and glazed doors to the courtyard, along with a fireplace and mezzanine level which is currently used as a study. From the drawing room there is a further hallway with two additional bedrooms, one being the master with en suite bathroom.

      The converted stable block contains three en suite bedrooms each with separate access.

      Sheildaig is presently being run by the owners as a successful self catering business, It was run previously as an award wining licenced bed and breakfast. – further information can be obtained from the selling agents.
