Shepherd’s Cottage in Sutherland enjoys a spectacular and wild setting with far-reaching views of rugged mountainous landscapes and the River Runie, offering the ideal location to get away from it all and enjoy an outdoor lifestyle. The surrounding countryside provides a habitat for many rare and protected species of flora and fauna.
The cottage is directly off the A835, part of the popular NC500 tourist route.
Claire Macdonald of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said:
Shepherd’s Cottage is a traditional Highland cottage in a beautiful location. The property requires full renovation and offers the opportunity, subject to the necessary consents, to upgrade into a modern country home or potentially to rebuild entirely.
Given the beauty of the setting and its prime location on the route of the NC500, there is clear potential to develop a tourism business or simply to create your own private sanctuary in one of Scotland’s most celebrated settings.
Shepherd’s Cottage has one reception room and two bedrooms. The plot extends to about 5.94 hectares (14.68 acres), comprising primarily rough grazing land with some naturally regenerating woodland, and is gently undulating with some rocky outcrops. There is a timber barn and a traditional stone barn with tin roof.
Ullapool, about 10 miles away, has good amenities including a supermarket, primary and secondary schools, popular restaurants and cafés. The city of Inverness is approximately an hour and half by car and offers all the facilities of a modern city including an airport, train station and many high street shops.
Shepherd’s Cottage is for sale through Galbraith for offers over £250,000.
