Sutherland is known for its beautiful coastline and
stunning countryside from the fertile straths to
dramatic mountains. The region enjoys continued
growth and prosperity and yet retains its unspoilt
charm and sense of community. Opportunities
for the outdoor enthusiast include walking, hill
climbing, golf, sailing and shooting, while the
peaceful countryside is home to a variety of wildlife. Fishermen are regular visitors to this area attracted by the world class salmon fishing available on the Kyle of Sutherland and also its four feeder rivers, the Carron, Shin, Oykel and Cassley. There is an award winning beach at Dornoch, while the west coast with its beautiful coastline and excellent sailing is under a one hour drive away. The village of Lairg is well provided for and has a village shop with Post Office, a primary school and hotel. Secondary schooling is available in Golspie and Dornoch both of which offer a further range of shops and facilities. Inverness, about an hour’s drive away, has all the amenities of a modern city as well as its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.

The Farmhouse currently forms party of Challenger Estate which is a delightful residential and mixed Estate located a short drive from the
