A strange wild place in the High­lands

Country Life Every Week - - Property Market -

AFORMER seat of the Clan Macpher­son, se­cluded Glen­truim House near Lag­gan in In­ver­ness-shire is for sale through the In­ver­ness of­fice of Strutt & Parker (01463 719171) for ‘of­fers over £3m’. In her book A Strange and Wild Place, San­dra Macpher­son de­scribes her fam­ily’s time at Glen­truim, which has since been com­pre­hen­sively re­stored and re­fur­bished by its present own­ers, Gor­don and Syd­ney In­gram, who bought the house with 53 acres as a hol­i­day home in 2008. Mr and Mrs In­gram have ren­o­vated the house and cot­tages from top to bot­tom. The in­te­ri­ors, all de­signed by Mrs In­gram, now in­clude a smok­ing room, a li­brary, a beauty spa, a sauna, a gym and a home cin­ema, along with the orig­i­nal main re­cep­tion rooms, eight bed­rooms and seven bath­rooms.

Hav­ing opened the house for pri­vate func­tions and hol­i­day lets 18 months ago, the business has quickly de­vel­oped into a suc­cess­ful en­ter­prise in its own right and the time has come to move on.

Some pieces of the Macpher­son fur­ni­ture that came with the house will re­main in place. ‘They were part of the house when I bought it and it would be wrong to re­move them,’ Mr In­gram be­lieves.
