Take a look through-the-keyhole at the incredible Drakies House that is oozing in history.

This B listed, beautiful stone-built, 1820 house offers over 5,900 sq. ft. of characterful and adaptable accommodation, including a sizeable annexe for just £375,000. However, this is the last chance of claiming this property as its closing date is today at noon.

The property requires upgrading and refurbishment but provides the potential purchaser with a fantastic development opportunity in a sought after position close to the golf course, hospital and other local amenities in Inverness.
