Westloch Farmhouse, a detached stone-built traditional home, is set within five acres of private grounds, which include a two-bedroom bothy and a large metal shed.

The property enjoys a picturesque rural location, and if desired, a further 7.5 acres is available for sale by separate negotiation.

Accessed via a tree-lined private driveway, Westloch extends to around 288 square metres, and whilst requiring a degree of upgrading or modernisation, it offers generously-proportioned rooms, attractive period features and occupies extensive garden grounds of around five acres.
