The Old Tweed Mill is in a delightful setting on the edge of Pittentrail, a small Highland village set in the historic crofting community of Rogart in Sutherland, an area known for its beautiful coastline, unspoilt countryside and dry climate. The village has a local shop, petrol station, primary school, garage and village hall, focus for many community activities, as well as a railway station which is a request stop on the Far North line. Secondary schooling is available in Golspie and Dornoch, both offering a further range of shops and facilities. Inverness has all the amenities of a
modern city as well as its airport with regular flights to the south and flights to Europe.
The surrounding area offers an excellent range of opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast including walking, hill climbing, golf, and sailing, while the peaceful countryside is home to a variety of wildlife. In addition, the success of the NC500 route has brought an increased demand for goods and services.
The current owner fully renovated the property in 2007 and has created a delightful house, retaining many of the features and much of the character of the original building. The interior is bright and uncluttered and takes advantage of its waterside setting. Work carried out includes insulation of the floors, walls and ceilings on all floors and full timber treatments throughout. The first floor has an open plan living/dining/sitting room and two bedrooms, while the second floor with its full length sitting room with shower room and box room offers the opportunity for use as a master bedroom suite or
studio flat. The basement, which is accessed externally, has been fully tanked and this too offers the potential for conversion, subject to the necessary consents.
