Property Details


The Property

This two bedroom property is set in approximately one hectare of partly crofted land, which enjoys extensive views over farmland to the sea and the Cairngorm Mountains beyond to the Morven, Scraben and Rumster hills. The spacious accommodation comprises of two bedrooms (both with en-suite) lounge, kitchen/diner, utility room and shower room. The property benefits from double glazing and electric central heating throughout. The attic space is partially floored and has the potential to convert into more bedrooms/bathrooms. Recently installed solar panels are providing house with almost all the power required, keeping heating bills low and providing a modest income. A gravelled driveway leads from the public road to an enclosed garden with parking for several vehicles and integral double garage with power and light. The property is still covered by the 10-year NHBC warranty. Wildlife abounds in this area with various species of birds and animals, bottlenose dolphins and minke whales have also been spotted off nearby Swiney Head. The surrounding countryside has been inhabited by people for thousands of years and is full of brochs, cairns and standing stones attesting to the value our ancestors placed on this area.
