Crannag: Spacious 2 Bedroom De-crofted Detached Bungalow

Description - This is a unique opportunity to acquire a portfolio including two detached properties, a registered owner occupied croft and a building plot.

Crannag & Crann Tara are modern, detached bungalows nestled in rugged rural landscape on the now infamous North Coast 500, each with a stunning open aspect across the Kyle of Tongue and Tongue Bay across to Rabbit Island. In excellent order throughout, the properties are currently operating as successful holiday homes and can be purchased as a going concern, subject to negotiation. Alternatively you could reside in one and let out the other, or build a new property (subject to planning permission) and continue to rent out the bungalows.

Finished to a high standard, both properties offer bright and spacious accommodation designed to take advantage of the lovely aspect.

Holiday Home Business - The properties are being sold as residential properties, but can be purchased as a going concern, subject to negotiation, with all contents (with the exception of some personal items) included in the sale. These successful holiday homes are currently advertised on the Unique Cottages website &

Location - The properties are set on the outskirts of the village of Tongue on the scenic northern coastline of Scotland on the well known NC500 route. This is a good location for outdoor activities including scuba diving, fishing or walking with sheltered sandy beaches within easy reach. The area hosts an abundance of local wildlife including seals, whales and birds, with Duncansby Head providing views to the large sea stacks and nesting seabirds. Dunnet Head has an RSPB reserve and is some 54 miles distant. For the more adventurous, there are several challenging munros in the vicinity and zip wiring and cliff jumping available at Durness, some 30 miles away. Primary school education is provided for in Tongue with older children attending Farr High School at Bettyhill (bus service provided). There is a general store, post office and two restaurants in the village with a seasonal café within walking distance of the croft. Bettyhill (approximately 12 miles to the east) is home to a leisure centre with swimming pool. Both Crannag and Crann Tara appreciate a prime position for viewing the space launches across the water at Talmine, which will be the home of Space Hub Sutherland.
