The plot at Tom An Mhoid is situated within a stunning yet accessible rural position close to the hamlet of Gorthleck in Inverness-shire, lying on the edge of the Great Glen but distant from the preferred tourist routes along Loch Ness. Although both Inverness and Fort Augustus are just a ½ hour drive away, this area remains peaceful and unspoilt, its dramatic inland landscape providing a haven for many rare species of wildlife and plants. The quiet countryside makes it an ideal area for cycling and walking, while the west coast, with its excellent sailing, is within easy reach. In addition, the area offers top class shooting, stalking and fishing.
Dores village, about 9 miles away, has a post office and popular pub and restaurant on the shores of Loch Ness, while there is a bus service from Gorthleck to the primary school at Stratherrick and the secondary school in Fort Augustus. Inverness has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.
The plot offers an attractive development opportunity in a pleasant rural setting near Gorthleck. The site extends to around 9.41 acres and comprises native woodland and a decrofted house site of about half an acre with an area of hard standing in place. Detailed planning consent was granted on 30th Oct 2017. https://wam.highland.gov.uk/wam/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=OQ3U18IHLLR00. Partly enclosed by a post and wire fence there is a section of deer fencing to the foot of the woodland. The site is interspersed with specimen trees including scots pine, birch and alder along with some juniper, elder and rowan trees. https://www.crofts.ros.gov.uk/register/viewcroft?ID=C4294
