The two landholdings, either separately or together, offer outstanding potential in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland.
Claire Acheson, a partner with Galbraith, said: “This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a delightful Highland farm with potential for a wide range of uses, in an absolutely beautiful location with far-reaching views towards the loch and the hills. In addition the purchaser may wish to also consider the neighbouring land which would further augment the potential to establish a rural business, forestry, or a tourism enterprise, subject to planning permission. Jointly the land holdings would also create an excellent small sporting estate.
“Although the area is a popular destination for visitors, the surrounding countryside is unspoilt and tranquil, providing a haven for wildlife and offering excellent sporting and leisure opportunities. The purchaser would be able to enjoy a wonderful rural lifestyle, all within easy reach of Inverness.”
Garbeg Farm by Drumnadrochit extends to 574 acres (232 hectares), with a mixture of non-crofted and owner-occupied croft land and offering potential for a variety of uses. The farm is an established livestock farm and there is the opportunity to develop the sporting or natural capital interests. There are also two traditional cottages in need of full renovation.
The land includes hill ground, permanent pasture (ploughable), rough grazings and woodland, and is principally classified by the James Hutton Institute as Grade 5.2 with some Grade 5.1 and 4.2 land.
The farm is equipped with a range of agricultural buildings in a mixed state of repair.
The property is in an excellent location about 3 miles north of Drumnadrochit and 19 miles south west of Inverness.
Garbeg Farm is for sale through Galbraith for offers over £1,100,000.
The landholding adjacent, Land by Drumnadrochit, extends to 1,117 acres (452.1 hectares) of bare land and established pinewoods, also enjoying lovely open outlooks.
The maturing pinewoods would provide a future income stream through thinning/felling and the opportunity to restructure. The bare land has planting potential and the plot also has natural capital and amenity value.
The land can be accessed via a private track, currently suitable for ATV access. The purchaser will be given full servitude rights over the track, including the right to upgrade for forestry purposes. It can also be accessed directly from Garbeg Farm. The land at Drumnadrochit is for sale as a whole for offers over £1,045,000 through Galbraith.
