The Building Plot at Cuaig is in the scattered township of Cuaig on the Applecross peninsula in Wester Ross. The site is in a beautiful setting with views over open countryside and just a short walk from the spectacular coastline of sheltered harbours and sandy beaches.
Detailed planning consent was granted on 13th March 2017 Ref 17/00053/FUL www.highland.gov.uk and offers a rare opportunity to build a 1 ½ storey cottage in this stunning coastal setting, traditional in style but benefitting from modern building techniques and design. The site is level, recently drained and retains the stone from the original building for use in the construction of the cottage.
The Applecross Peninsula is famous for its beautiful and remote setting, stunning coastline and charming villages with traditional houses and sheltered bays. In spite of its popularity, the area remains unspoilt and has a strong sense of community. The plot is on the route of The North Coast 500 www.northcoast500.com, an initiative designed to develop economic growth across the North Highlands. The route has been enormously successful, attracting tourists from all over the world bringing with them a demand for goods and services.
There are good facilities in the area with a school and shop in Camusterrach, just west of Applecross, as well as a resident doctor, weekly visiting fish and butcher vans, a petrol station and the famous Applecross Inn and Walled Garden Café. Shieldaig has similar facilities and secondary schooling is available at Gairloch High School. Inverness, about 2 hours drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south.
