A property that will interest investors and developers, a renovation project. Located in the historical village of Wanlockhead, which is the highest village in Scotland. A traditional two storey dwelling, that does require full renovation, sold as seen. The original property has two reception rooms, kitchen and bathroom to the ground level, with two double bedrooms to the upper level. Externally there is ground to the side and rear of the property, offering fabulous views over the village and surrounding countryside.Location
The property is located in Scotlands highest village, on the route of the Southern Upland Way therefore offers numerous walks capturing the beauty of the surrounding countryside. It is a lovely location for those with pets, although it is essential to follow the country code. Sanquhar some eight miles distance, has a variety of shops from local specialist shops to some smaller branches of grocery chains, as well as a golf club, swimming pool, equestrian facilities and a bowling club. There is a train service to Dumfries and the South as well as to Ayrshire. Several bus services are available here too. Leadhills, Scotland's second highest village (after nearby Wanlockhead) lies at a height of 395m or 1295ft and is reached via the B7040 from Elvanfoot or the B797 from Abington. The village itself has the required facilities you would expect from a small village including a local primary school. Leadhills may not quite be Scotland's highest village, but it does have a number of unique claims to fame. Leadhills is also home to the country's highest adhesion (i.e. normally driven) railway. This is a 2ft narrow gauge railway built along part of the track bed of the branch line from Elvanfoot to Wanlockhead that operated from 1901 to 1939. A visit to Leadhills Station is a fascinating experience, with a range of ex-industrial engines on view in its high moorland setting. It also boasts Scotland's highest golf course at 456m or 1500ft above sea level. This nine hole course is described as not for the faint hearted and lies just to the east of the village. All in all an ideal location for the commuter to either Edinburgh or Glasgow, indeed also ideally situated for someone commuting to Carlisle, all three are within an hours drive by car using either the M74 or A702 road networks. The Market towns of Biggar and Lanark are approximately 21 miles away, both offer a wide range of shops, entertainment and recreation facilities.IMPORTANT NOTE TO PURCHASERS:
