Property description

This Freehold property has some of the most spectacular views of any property on the market. The perfect retreat, just a few miles from the North Coast 500. The Lighthouse Engine House is a wonderful spot to watch the stars, the Northern Lights, sunrises and sunsets. A magnificent blank canvas with full planning permission.

The property is around 3 miles from Wick in the Scottish Highlands. It is located at the end of Noss Head, a peninsula on the north-west coast of Caithness overlooking Sinclair's Bay.

There is full planning permission to convert this magnificently positioned building in to a spectacular home. If desired then the Highland Council have indicated that an amendment to the plans to create 2 one bed properties and also an extension would be looked upon favourably. There is also scope for the new owner to amend the plans to suit their requirements. Around 1 acre of land is included where there is the prospect of building a one-of-a-kind clifftop property on the "Pirates Cove"

A neighbouring property is rented through Airbnb and this would be a viable option for the Lighthouse Engine House, it would make a highly profitable investment.

This is a rare opportunity to buy a piece of Lighthouse History. It was built by Mr Arnot of Inverness with the construction being overseen by the notable lighthouse engineer Alan Stevenson (uncle of Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson). The Lighthouse Engine House is a later addition from around 1963.
