Historic Jacobite House For Sale
Tirindrish House, located in the Great Glen on the outskirts of Spean Bridge village, can be traced back to the 1500's and has had a splendid journey through the years. Owned for centuries by the MacDonalds (known as the 'Gorries') it was Donald MacDonald who launched the first attack of the Jacobite rising in 1745 with the battle of High Bridge, where he defeated government troops.

Donald MacDonald was eventually captured and hung at Carlisle and the house was burned by the vengeful Government troops. It was subsequently rebuilt with additions to the building made in Victorian times. 

Tirindrish House has magnificent views of the Ben Nevis mountain range and the Aonach Mor ski area. It has six bedrooms, four of which have en-suite bathrooms, seven public rooms and additional toilets and store rooms, totalling over 400 square meters.

The house is set in 12.5 acres of grounds including a large area of woodland, a plot of land with planning permission, a tennis court and a two bedroom four star self catering cottage called 'Gorries Lair'.

The current owners have generated a good income by providing holiday lets and Bed and Breakfast in the main house. The new owners have the opportunity to realise the potential for further development and expansion in future years and will be able to make their own mark on this historical and beautiful Highland retreat.
