Lynwilg is a small hamlet of scattered properties at the Southern entrance to Aviemore, just off the main A9 Inverness to Perth trunk route.  Most of the properties in the Lynwilg area have been in the ownership of the former Kinrara Estate and until now have not been individually marketed before, and this in itself presents a rare opportunity to purchase a property on the periphery of Aviemore.

Lynwilg House, a fine example of Edwardian architecture, is located in a stunning hillside setting with fabulous views of the Cairngorm Mountains.  Set within extensive garden grounds, with the Allt na Criche burn running through the Northern boundary, this country house offers potential for a variety of uses, including B&B, holiday letting or as a substantial family home with income stream coming from the timber cottage within the grounds.

Kinrara Gin Distillery and the outdoor adventure centre of Allt na Criche are located close by, as is access to the Burma Road (a popular mountain biking and walking trail). There are walks, biking trails, lochs and spectacular scenery practically on the doorstep.

The property, which is believed to have been constructed around 1920, has traded both as a Bed & Breakfast establishment and self catering holiday let in recent years.  The commodious, triple aspect lounge enjoys panoramic views over the Cairngorm Mountains and garden grounds and a fitted window seat takes advantage of these.  The bright, dining kitchen, unusually located at the front of the house, houses a large oil fired AGA and breakfast area and there are several ancillary rooms to the rear which offer potential for expansion or conversion.

There is a large games room at the rear of the property, housing a pool table, open fireplace and with sliding patio doors giving direct access to the garden grounds. This could also be used as a family room, gym or further reception room.

The bedrooms (5 double and 1 single) are situated on the first floor, accessed by a grand staircase and are serviced by 3 en-suites and two bathrooms.  The single bedroom could also be utilised as a useful office/study – however the views might be a bit distracting!

There is a two bedroom timber cottage at the rear of the property, which has been used in the past for holiday letting, offering extra income or as ancillary accommodation to the main house. It benefits from UPVC double glazing, oil fired central heating and is offered for sale fully furnished and with its own garden grounds.

The garage and three outbuildings are located to the side, one of which houses the oil tank (for the AGA) and private parking is available at the front and side of the house.


Carpets and curtains, fitted floorcoverings, light fittings.  Furnishings available by separate negotiation.


Mains water, electricity and septic tank drainage.
