The two plots are both of excellent size and offer the purchaser the opportunity to not only have a house but have enough land for outbuildings and plenty of garden ground. Bounded to the rear by Forestry Commission land and with open views to the front. The plots are in a quiet location with little noise apart from birdsong.
Planning Permission in Principle (Ref: 19/00839/PIP) was granted on 25 April 2019 by Highland Council for the erection of a one and a half storey house on each plot. Plot 1 extends to 0.15ha (0.37 acre) and Plot 2 extends to 0.19ha (0.47 acre). Both are ideally situated for a rural lifestyle yet with amenities within easy walking distance.
