    “Both practical and immensely comfortable, Tighnalinn benefits from flexible living space and a wonderfully scenic setting, while the very attractive chalet would be perfect for Airbnb type accommodation (ideal in this whisky distillery and salmon fishing heartland) or used as guest/additional family quarters if desired.”
