The buildings are at the centre of 10 acres of crofted land – all deer fenced. There are a further five acres of crofted land attached and access to an area of common grazing on the hills. The Croft is approached by a ½ mile track from the A9.

Burnside Croft is located in a superb elevated position on the east coast with outstanding views over the countryside to thesea. The property is the ultimate "get away from it all" Highland retreat and offers peace and solitude.

The croft house is over two floors and comprises entrance hall, two living rooms, kitchen bathroom and two bedrooms. There are original wooden floorboards throughout. The property retains original stonework features.

From the driveway a Caithness stone path leads to the hardwood door which opens to the hallway which in turn leads to the living rooms and a staircase rises to the upper floor. A gun cabinet is fixed in the hallway.

The lounge has a solid fuel stove and doorway to kitchen. A window takes in the lovely sea views. The kitchen area has a slate floor, double sink, gas stove/oven and fridge.

The sitting room also has a solid fuel stove and again enjoys the superb views.

From the hall the bathroom has a slate floor, basin, bath and WC.

The stairs rise to the upper floor which has strip wood panelling and a polished solid wood floor throughout, the landing area has a good amount of storage. Bedroom 1 is a double room with a cupboard and desk and bedroom 2 is again a double room. Both rooms have Velux windows and coombed ceilings.

The assignation of the tenancy of the croft will require Crofing

should be aware that a croft tenant is normally required to live
within 32km of the croft. It may be advisable to gain advice
from a solicitor experienced in crofting law and the regulations
