Country estate in an idyllic location with three modern holiday homes and its own lake

This beautiful country estate lies in unspoilt nature near the west coast of Scotland. It comprises the main house and three different holiday homes built to modern ecological standards, as well as extensive meadows and fields plus its own lake: Loch Tromlee. Highland cattle and many sheep are also part of the scenery.

The country estate itself is ideal for those who enjoy the Scottish countryside with its peace and quiet, and want to go exploring on long walks and hikes. Loch Tromlee offers visitors to Ballimore the possibility to go fishing and there is a small golf course in the nearby village. The property is ideal for large families and groups.

The water supply for all three houses comes from its own mountain spring. It runs through four different filters that are regularly changed and a UV light filter system. No substances such as chlorine are added to the water, which means that sometimes the water can be slightly coloured, owing to the peat content of the earth, but this is harmless. The water is subject to regular strict checks. It is rare to have good mobile phone reception in the Scottish highlands. Within the garden and in the houses there is no mobile reception, but the Internet connection in the main house and in the lodge works seamlessly and there is also a mainline connection in both houses for emergencies.

The West coast of Scotland features a varied and dramatic landscape with hills (bens and munros), valleys (glens) and lakes (lochs). The little village of Taynuilt lies two hours to the north of Glasgow. Just before, a single-track road leads southwards towards Kilchrenan and after about 9km on the left lies Baltimore Farm Estate with Loch Tromlee in the foreground and Ben Cruachan in the background. A three-kilometre-long field track leads to the north-east past the loch to the estate with the main house, cottage and lodge. The surroundings are fantastic for walking, hiking and fishing. The surrounding fields and forests are home to a large number of birds (from sparrows to eagles) and other wild animals such as deer, otters and foxes. Freedom to roam applies in Scotland, which means that one can walk wherever one likes, as long as nature, fences and gates are left as they are found. You can therefore go on great walks from Ballimore such as to Loch Awe or Loch Tromlee, complete the Kilchrenan Circle or admire the Pass of Brander from above. You can explore Glen Nant nearby, or Loch Etive and visit the Avich Falls. In Kilchrenan there is a great pub with good food and there are shops in Taynuilt (butcher and grocery shop), as well as in Oban about 35 minutes away (Aldi, Lidl, Tesco and co.).

Two bedroom lodge

Lodge No2 was built in 2012 and is the extension to atraveo no 647949.

It boasts two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the second one with two single beds, a kitchenette and a living room. The fireplace - charcoal and wood - heats the whole house. The living room is furnished with two comfortable sofas and a dining table and offers beautiful views all the way to the loch. There are two open plan living rooms, each with a kitchen unit, large windows and two patios. There is a bedroom with a double bed, one with two single beds and a double bed on a gallery at the front of the lodge.

The lodge sits quietly and privately away from the main house. It offers stunning views over the fruit orchards and fields all the way to Lake Tromlee and the surrounding hills.

The combination of several lodges is ideal for accommodating small groups or families, looking for a quiet property.

    “Fantastic location in the mountains, just moorland around with sheep and highland cattle. A place you would rather keep to himself :)
    Nice house, feels luxurious, well equipped. "Western baddrumsstandard " but not English, feels like home.
    Although remote, so it is close to Oban.
    An absolutely incredible place, you really want to return to.”
