Location

From the Owner

I grew up in the wild, unspoiled and stunningly scenic remote Western Highlands and though I was sent to school in England my heart has always stayed captivated by the rolling ocean and endlessly shifting light of Assynt, this remote top western corner of Scotland where we still own a family home in addition to Glencorse. I knew Glencorse from Childhood. it is a large But welcoming house with unusually high ceilings for the area lending a feeling of space, complemented by the wonderful views directly overlooking Loch Drumbeg. It had been in the same family for many years, and I leapt at the chance to buy this uniquely special place when it finally came up for sale 3 years ago.
