A fortified seat in the Highlands
29th November 2010
Victorian mansion house for sale
Lemlair House, Dingwall, Ross-shire
Offers over £1,000,000

Lemlair House Dingwall
The original Lemlair House was built as a fortified seat for the chief of the Clan Munro in 1643, with the name "Lemlair" thought to have come from the Gaelic for "a bare place suitable for grazing horses". In 1876 it was rebuilt into the present mansion and it has had only three owners since then.

This nine bedroom mansion is now a delightful family home, modernised and comfortable, yet retaining many of the original features such as the pitch pine doors and skirtings, high ceilings with detailed cornice work, Munro clan features such as a fireplace depicting the famous eagle emblem, stained glass windows and a Rennie Mackintosh tiled fireplace and mantelpiece. It boasts a snooker room, a tiled-floor veranda, a Christian kitchen and wonderful, panoramic views over the Cromarty Firth.

The well maintained gardens at Lemlair extend to some 5.34 acres and offer great peace and tranquillity, with a tennis court for those looking for a little exercise.

So if you're a Munro looking to reclaim an ancestral seat this could be your golden opportunity.
