About this property

  • Rudh na Magach is a pretty traditional stone cottage dating from around 1824 which has been sympathetically extended over the years to form the five bedroom house that exists today. The house is full of character and charm. The entrance to the house is via a bright sun room which is glazed on all sides and is a fabulous place to sit and watch the scenery. The remainder of the house is characterised by a mixture of old stone walls, painted timber cladding, exposed beams, astragal style windows, deep window sills and original pine lining. The house has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. While the dining room and sitting room are intimate and cosy, the kitchen has a vaulted ceiling with a galleried hayloft at one end. It has a Rangemaster cooker and space for a family sized dining table. From the utility room there is a fabulous westerly view over the loch to a spectacular skyline of hill tops in the distance. A small staircase leads up from the utility room to the hayloft and there is also access to a boot room and backdoor.

    The principal bedroom is in a more recent extension at the eastern end of the house where there is also a shower room and a staircase to two double bedrooms above. Two further double bedrooms are accessed from the original staircase at the centre of the house. Below these rooms on the ground floor is a bathroom and a WC.

    The Studio
    The studio is situated adjacent to the main house. With a wood burning stove, skylight windows, light and power, it is a versatile room and could be adapted for a number of uses. An attractive verandah at the front is useful for storing dried wood and for sitting out and enjoying the view.

    Garage
    The garage is attached to the Studio. It has lots of space to store a vehicle, and garden machinery as well as having a good area for workshop space.


    Generator
    The 6 year old Perkins Generator (P116-S Diesel) has an inverter and battery bank of 12 batteries. It is stored in a dedicated shed behind the garage.


    Outside
    The ground at Rudh na Magach extends to approximately 1.3 acres. The property is approached by a short private driveway leading from the A86 to a parking area beside the garage. The grounds are mainly grass which meets the lochside. Two statuesque beech trees are situated at the front of the house and a number of young conifers grow elsewhere in the grounds. A stone wall shelters an outdoor seating area on the west side of the property. Wild flowers grow in the shingle in the spring and the summer and the property is a haven for wildlife.

Local information

  • Rudh na Magach has an idyllic situation on the shores of Loch Laggan with glorious southerly views across the water to the hills beyond. Rudh na Magach is Gaelic for ‘the point of the beast's paw' and refers to the rocky volcanic outcrop which stretches into Loch Laggan to the west of the house. This rock is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is over 900 million years old.
  • While Rudh na Magach feels miles from anywhere it is in fact beside the A86 which quickly connects to the A9 (about 25 miles) and key routes in the highlands. The property is perfectly positioned to enjoy the impressive scenery as well as spectacular sunrises, sunsets and clear skies for stargazing. It is within the Creag Meagaidh National Nature Reserve which stretches from the shores of Loch Laggan to the summit of the Creag Meagaidh range of hills on the northern side of Glen Spean. On the south side of the Loch is the East Highland Way and the nearby estates of Corrour and Ardverikie which offer cyclists, climbers and walkers access to magnificent experiences. Organised activities and attractions locally include the Highland Wildlife Park at Kingussie, the ski centre at Aviemore, Wolftrax cycle tracks at Laggan and 4X4 and quad bike tours at Ardverikie. However some of the best fun is quite literally on the doorstep where shingle beaches are the perfect launch pads for boating, paddle boarding, canoeing, swimming and fishing.
  • Fort William with its railway station, shops, restaurants, hotels and numerous outdoor activities is about 25 miles west. Tulloch Station is only 8 miles away where it is possible to board the Caledonian Sleeper to London. Inverness (about 68 miles) and Perth (about 75 miles) are both easily accessible via the A9 and offer all the cultural, shopping, health and professional services that you would expect of two of Scotland's major cities.
  • All distances and travel times are approximate.

Additional information

  • Directions: If driving north on the A9 take the exit at Dalwhinnie and follow signs to Fort William and Spean Bridge. Follow the A889 and then the A86 and after about 20 miles (about 2 miles after passing the sign to the Creag Meagaidh National Nature Reserve), the entrance to Rudh na Magach is on the left hand side.
