Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Land
In total the lot extends to approximately 148 acres.

The land rises to its highest point in the south, the peak of Baile Buidhe, which sits 147 metres above sea level.

The ground is categorised as grade 5 by the James Hutton Institute, and provides hill grazing. It is where an original stone-built sheep fank is located.

The fencing across the property is in good stock proof condition.

The land is identified as common grazings. In addition to the vendor, three local crofters have a right to graze livestock on this area. We are advised that historically only one exercises this right.

Sporting
The sporting rights are in hand.

The inclining nature presents plenty opportunity for enjoyable rough shooting and opportunities for deer stalking.

Gruinards Farm is located in a private and tranquil situation, approximately 3.5 miles to the west of the village of Ardgay. Found amidst some of the finest mountain scenery in Scotland, on a quiet country road and with frontage to the River Carron, Gruinards Farm is the ideal rural Highland retreat.

The nearby villages of Ardgay and Bonar Bridge offer a range of services including local shops, a post office, bank, library, pub, restaurants and hotels.

Gledfield Primary School provides primary schooling, and secondary education is available at Tain Royal Academy. Gordonstoun School is the closest private school situated 73 miles to the south east. There are also a number of campuses linked to the University of the Highlands and Islands as well as the Scottish Agricultural College south of Inverness.

The closest golf club is a 9-hole course at Bonar Bridge. There are 18-hole courses at Tain, Brora and Golspie and a world famous championship course at Royal Dornoch, 15 miles east.

Inverness, the capital of The Highlands, provides a range of retail parks and supermarkets as well as many entertainment, cultural and medical facilities.

The closest airport with scheduled domestic and international flights is Inverness Airport. Ardgay has a railway station on the Far North line which runs services to Thurso, Wick and Inverness.

For those enthusiastic about the outdoors, there are many opportunities locally for walking, cycling, horse riding, salmon fishing, shooting and stalking.

The area is attractive to tourists and its popularity has increased due to the nearby North Coast 500 route, Scotland’s take on America’s Route 66.
