The ground floor also has a snooker room and study with a stunning oak staircase up to the second floor.

The hallway is grand, with a large chandelier in the entrance.

Neutral tones run throughout the home with the hallway painted white and the living room painted cream.

Views from the living room are magnificent, with huge windows showcasing the view.

The land also consists of a 16th century castle, recognised as a medieval tower house.

The property consists of huge gardens, paddocks, a loch an, a river with fishing rights, and an ancient woodland which is packed with bluebells in the Spring.

There are also multiple outbuildings, described as in “various states of repair”.

Within the courtyard, there is a two-bedroom cottage with two conservatories overlooking the lochan.

If planning permission was granted, it would be perfect for staff or guest accommodation.

Jennifer Campbell, head of estate agency in Baird Lumsden DM Hall, said: “Properties of this nature – in which all the component parts meld naturally into a perfect whole – are, frankly, as rare as hen’s teeth in a rural market which has seen demand for estates soar, and Bannachra is bound to spark intense interest, not only domestically but internationally.

“Set in Scotland’s first national park, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, the estate is surrounded by some of the most attractive countryside in the UK, with lochs, mountains, waterfalls, grand Victorian architecture and innumerable outdoor pursuits.

“Nature has taken a hand in Bannachra’s embellishment, with snowdrops and daffodils in the early Spring, bright rhododendrons and azaleas as the year wears on, the delicacy of wild orchids and the particular pleasure of bluebell woods.

“Formal gardens counterpoint the majesty of the wild land.”

The property is being sold by Baird Lumsden, the specialist rural property arm of DM Hall Chartered Surveyors. 

However, the price is unknown and only available upon application.

Despite its quiet and secluded location, the estate is just five miles away from the town of Helensburgh.

It is also only 19 miles away from Glasgow airport, perfect for frequent travellers.
