I bought Polanach in 2014 as both a holiday let and as an occasional retreat for myself. It has been a life-long ambition to own a property in the Highlands, being a keen walker and climber. Over time I aim to develop the gardens to encourage a wide range of wildlife. After a career in education I am particularly keen to introduce children to this rich natural environment.
