Bunloit Estate sits in a highly prominent position overlooking one of the most iconic features of Scotland – Loch Ness, situated in the centre of the Scottish Highlands. Carved out over Millennia, this uniquely dramatic landscape is one of the most famous locations in Europe. Not to mention the famous “Loch Ness Monster sightings” it is one of the largest bodies of fresh water in the British Isles. Just to the north of the estate sit the historically interesting ruins of Urquhart castle, dating back to the time of the Picts and St Columba. In the more recent past, Bunloit was once part of Balmacaan Estate, which extended to the west coast, being one of the largest mixed sporting estates in the Highlands.
In 1946, Bunloit Farm was separated from Balmacaan Estate and Bunloit Estate was formed round it. This now provides a truly magnificent setting for this lovely, manageable mixed estate with a principal house, two traditional self-contained holiday cottages, farm land, sporting rights and some highly attractive native woodland and moorland. At the north end of the estate also lies a significant area of highly productive commercial woodland which provides income from timber sales and overlooks the village of Drumnadrochit and Glen Urquhart.
There is significant potential for the estate to scale up the holiday letting business and sporting activity, with the possibility for development of more tourist accommodation and facilities or for an owner to simply enjoy this stunning part of the Highlands.
