“Woodlands” is a traditional, stone built, detached building, situated in the desirable West Terrace residential area of Kingussie.  Originally a Victorian home, the property was converted to a centre for outdoor education groups in 1972, to provide accommodation for up to 29 people.  Set within extensive garden grounds, the property sits on an elevated site, close to Creag Bheag, a local hill, where there are woodland walks, rock climbing crags and spectacular views.

The property benefits from LP gas central heating, full fire regulations and there is also a self contained apartment with two double bedrooms.  There are 3 dormitories on the first floor (sleeping 6-8), as well as a smaller bedroom which sleeps 2.  There is a large wash room with 3 shower and 3 toilet cubicles and also has access to the external fire escape.  There is a further wash room with 2 shower cubicles and a WC off the middle landing.  On the ground floor is the large lounge, dining/lecture room, commercial kitchen, dry store, utility room, drying room and various kit storage areas.  Access to the self contained apartment (sleeping up to 5) is also from here.


The garden grounds slope downwards and are laid to grass with mature trees and shrubs.  There is a timber garage located next to the entrance gate and a gravel drive leads down from the road to a parking area at the side of the house.  The LP gas tank is also located here.


Fitted floor coverings.  Kitchen appliances and furnishings are available by separate negotiation.


Mains electricity, water and drainage.
