Scottish Highlands

Once owned by a nephew of Ian Fleming, who created James Bond.

This house is situated in stunning Glen Etive, which features in Skyfall and it bears more than a passing resemblance to Skyfall House.  Indeed it was scouted by the James Bond team as a possible film location.  Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) the producers were looking for something a little more run-down!

A large, rambling, Victorian shooting lodge, the house had clearly hosted decades of shooting parties.  It hadn’t been altered much since it was built and as is often the case, suffered from too few bathrooms, too little heading and too many draughts.  We introduced substantial re-configuration of the entrance and public spaces to make it more welcoming and better suited to accommodate large parties, as well as some home comforts like ensuite bathrooms throughout and underfloor heating.

Now a sporting rental property – see the website
