Balcraggie House, a Regency manse in Glenelg

Balcraggie House is the old Church of Scotland manse in Glenelg. The house was built in 1830 to replace an earlier building that dates to the 1720s. The foundations of this older manse can still be seen in our garden.  The self-catering annex is the original North Wing of the house, and was originally designed as the study rooms of the minister.

Balcraggie House has a walled garden and orchard to which you have complete access. There is private car-parking within the grounds. The grounds of the house extend to three and a half acres and contain many mature trees. The situation is in a quiet Highland glen, the main glen in Glenelg, and as there are no other buildings in close proximity it is very quiet and secluded. The land around is crofted with some arable land and parks for cattle and sheep. Hills rise up on both sides of the glen and are home to sheep, red and roe deer, foxes and badgers, wildcat and pine marten and a variety of birdlife including the golden eagle.
