This attractive part-Georgian, part-Victorian property with 13 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms sits on the Hebridean island of Mull, with surrounding landscapes of lochs, mountains and rivers. The home was once owned by Queen Victoria's fourth daughter, Princess Louise, and her husband, the ninth Duke of Argyll.
The shooting lodge stands out against the rolling hills and woodlands of the 17,000-acre Ben More estate.
3/9 Games room
An oak-panelled billiards room occupies the original kitchen. This games room has a gentlemen's club feel to it.
4/9 Utility room
An aga fills the kitchen with warmth, maintaining the atmosphere of a traditional Scottish lodge, without the gloom.
The kitchen was designed by Murray & Murray of Edinburgh.
6/9 Dining room
The owners bought the silver candelabra at Sotheby's.
8/9 Double bedroom
The furnishing in the guest bedroom is smart and relaxed for a polished look.
9/9 Master bedroom
The Scottish theme is heightened by the tartan fabric on the curtains and bed runner.
The bedlinen is from The White Company.
