Greenbank is a charming Grade C listed Victorian house positioned for a superb view over the head of the loch. The large half-acre garden extends west towards the loch and up the hill towards the mountains. This private garden is festooned with mature shrubs and trees and provides hiding places for children and is a good spot for a close encounter with grouse, red squirrel and deer. Nestled between the mountains and the loch every window offers stunning views. Inside has been thoughtfully refurbished and equipped to a high standard in 2013. Located within the village, the grocery, post office and pubs are within 2 minutes walk.
