A large country house with its own salmon fishing stretch for the price of a terraced house in London


Situated on 10 acres of beautiful land including a third of a mile from the River Nairn, Cantray House is a magnificent Neo-Palladian house with six bedrooms.

There is good sea trout and salmon on the third of a mile of the Nairn River in Cantray House’s nearly 10 acres of land.

A road winds slowly through the park, passing mature trees, rhododendrons, azaleas, stables, a large greenhouse and other outbuildings, before approaching the 1920s Scottish New Palladian house in Croy, near ‘Inverness, which is on sale via Strutt & Parker at an asking price of £ 1.35million. Just for comparison, it’s basically the same as this house in Kentish Town.

Agents describe Cantray’s 7,825 square foot interiors as Scottish / French style. The ground floor has a large modern kitchen, living room, dining room, morning room as well as a pantry, weapons room and wine store.

Upstairs, five bedrooms, two of which are en suite, plus a dressing room. The top floor houses a large games room and a small apartment with a kitchen area, a living room and an en-suite bedroom.

Close to the village of Cawdor, with its famous castle, and a multitude of golf courses, Cantray House is four miles from the site of the Battle of Culloden, where its then heiress, Bonnie James Dallas, fell.
