  • Extending to approximately 43.78 Acres (17.72 Hectares)
  • Closing Date - 24 Jan 2018 12pm



The land for sale extends to approximately 17.72ha (43.78 acres), and comprises a mixture of rough grazing and permanent pasture, being in the past small in-bye fields divided by drystone dykes, which are now dilapidated. There is new perimeter fencing which has just been put up. The grassland could be improved by good management and cleaning out open ditches, offering a useful block of land with great potential as a productive small livestock holding. The land is largely classified as Grade 5 (3), by the James Hutton Institute.

The access is from the public road which runs northwards from the Linside to Altass road at Tapachy, by a right of servitude over the track through Burnside.


Altass is a small settlement in the Kyle of Sutherland close to the Rivers Cassley and Oykel. Its rural and unspoilt location is a haven for those wanting solitude in a particularly attractive area of the Highlands. The fisherman, walker, golfer and country sportsman are well catered for and the golfer has a choice of several well-known courses including Dornoch.

The nearest towns are Bonar Bridge and Lairg where there are shops, banks, surgeries, schools and a railway station at Lairg. Inverness is about an hour away by road and has all the facilities commensurate with a major regional centre. These include a good shopping centre, theatre, hospital, schools and a mainline railway station. Inverness airport has a variety of services both domestic and international.



From Inverness take the A9 north crossing the Kessock and Cromarty bridges towards Alness, then follow the B9176 and A836 through Bonar Bridge towards Lairg. Approximately five miles after Bonar Bridge, turn left onto the A837 towards Lochinver and Ullapool. After some 4 miles turn right onto the minor road signposted Altass. Travel up this road until you reach a sign for Tapachy. Turn right here and continue for approx. 700 metres to the private track for Burnside on the right-hand side. Follow the shared access track over the cattle grid to the croft.
