A 19th Century semi-detached cottage brimming with traditional charm and character, 4 Star Merlin Cottage at award-winning Portnellan Highland Estate was originally a pig byre to the farm and comes complete with 3 feet thick stone walls. Situated around the estate's private courtyard, the cottage has spectacular views towards the Loch and River Dochart plus a unique 'upside down' design featuring living space on the upper floor. The cottage has been recently redecorated to a very high standard.
