Full description

Tenure: Freehold

2 Balachuirn is a charming croft house which retains its traditional design but benefits from having been fully modernised. The fitted kitchen is complemented by a large space for dining with a feature woodburning stove. The cosy sitting room also has a woodburning stove. The three bedrooms are on the first floor, and the ground floor shower room downstairs has been cleverly laid out to maximise the available space. With a small garden area to the front, amenity ground to the rear and area to park either side of the property this is an ideal small family home, second home or holiday letting property.

No. 2 is approximately 4 miles or so from Inverarish, the main village of Raasay. The sheltered, east facing location protects it from the seaward winds. From the front of the house there are open views across the nearby croft land. The island community of around 150 people is served by a small community owned shop in Inverarish, its own primary school, two churches and the iconic, recently refurbished Raasay House which is also the local hotel. The famous "Calum's road" from Brochel to Arnish is nearby too as are various moorland and coastal walks. There are regular ferry connections to Sconser on the Isle of Skye.
