Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Stone Chats Croft is a working croft in Sutherland, in the Scottish Highlands, said to have one of the most dramatic views in the UK in a part of the North West Highlands renowned for its
charm and dramatic surroundings. Its sale provides a fantastic lifestyle opportunity for somebody looking for a property in an idyllic rural position with further development potential. The house site and immediate gardens grounds have been de-crofted and there is a further croft to the front of the property which bounds Badcall Bay. Included in the sale are two mobile homes which are positioned adjacent to the entrance to the property and there is full planning permission for a fishing/hunting style lodge granted in August 2015.

The property is extremely flexible and for the last few years has successfully provided Bed & Breakfast and self-catering accommodation. Additional details are available at www.stonechatscroft.co.uk

A driveway leads down to the main house past the two mobile home units off to the right hand side. There is a parking area and detached garage. The porch leads to the inner hallway and the Master bedroom which has an en-suite shower room. There is a spacious dining room, kitchen, sitting room and study area. The conservatory was more recently added and is positioned to make the most of the stunning, ever changing views and is the ideal place to admire the wildlife, nature, surreal cloud formations and waves crashing in from the Atlantic.

The property is located in one of the most idyllic locations in the Scottish Highlands and occupies a peaceful, rural setting. The north western Highlands is one of the most dramatic and unspoilt regions of Scotland and forms part of Scotland's first European Geopark, an area recognised globally for its outstanding geological features, cultural heritage and forward thinking communities. The area has some of the finest beaches in the British Isles and is a popular base for sea kayaking, diving, sea fishing and surfing. This beautiful coastline sits against a backdrop of spectacular mountain scenery, home to a wide variety of native wildlife and providing ideal hill walking and climbing. Scourie is a thriving and active community with a good range of services including a shop, hotel, camp site, petrol station with outdoor clothing shop, doctors' surgery, primary and nursery schools. Secondary schooling is available at Kinlochbervie or Ullapool High Schools and both towns offer a good range of shops and facilities. Inverness, about 2 hours' drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city with its airport with regular flights to the South and Europe.

We understand the total site extends to approximately 2.02 Hectares/5 acres or thereby. It is emphasised we have not taken any detailed site measurement on site and we recommend that this be confirmed by reference to title deeds. The site comprises two areas of ground.
