Traditional Scottish cottage in 2.5 acres beside Loch Lomond for sale for £75,000; it comes with several catches
A detached, stone-built cottage with outbuildings and 2.44 acres on the east bank of Loch Lomond in Scotland has gone on sale for just £75,000 ($97,000, €84,000 or درهم358,000) or 75% less than the price of an open air parking space in Hyde Park Gardens, London.
Doune Cottage, however, comes with several catches. Aside from being totally derelict, the property can be accessed only by ferry or private craft and foot from the West Highland Way footpath. Renovation works to make the property habitable thus will be both costly and complicated to orchestrate.
Aside from inspiring the famous 1841 song The Bonnie Banks O’ Loch Lomond, the setting is described by selling agents Galbraith as “idyllic and private” and the area as “well suited to the outdoor enthusiast”.
