Full description

Ideal Holiday/Retirement opportunity situated in the quiet crofting community of The Doll, within easy walking distance of Sputie Beach and Loch Brora, Gair Cottage is a two bedroom detached property with accommodation set over two floors and adjoining garage. The property does require some upgrading and modernising but benefits from full double glazing and electric storage heating supplemented by open fires in the sittingroom and diningroom. Off street parking.

The Doll is situated on the east coast of Sutherland and the area is renowned for its great beauty and tranquility. Brora with its picturesque harbour and well known 18 hole golf course designed by James Braid lies 2 miles to the north. Golspie is situated 4 miles south and boasts a bowling green, swimming pool and golf course. Both villages have supermarkets, a post office, restaurants and banking facilities. The world famous Royal Dornoch Golf Course is located approximately 15 miles south of The Doll. Salmon and trout fishing permits can be obtained for the River Brora. There are good road and rail links both to the north and south. The Highland Capital of Inverness is approximately 60 miles south.

Take the A9 north past Golspie and head towards Brora. Approximately 1 mile south of Brora you will see a signpost for the Doll, go past this and you will come to a second signpost beside a bus stop.
