No 1 Balgowan is an owner occupied croft in the hamlet of Struan on the west coast of Skye. The property is in a spectacular setting, its grounds extending to the shores of Loch Beag and with stunning water and mountain views.The Isle of Skye is the best known of the Inner Hebridean islands off the west coast of Scotland. Famous for its romantic, historical associations and magnificent landscape dominated by the Cuillin Mountains, the island is very popular attracting many tourists throughout the year as well as those who seek to enjoy a peaceful lifestyle in unspoilt and beautiful surroundings.There are many outdoor leisure pursuits available locally including hill walking, climbing, canoeing, sailing, mountain biking, and fishing, while unspoilt countryside provides a habitat for native wildlife with regular sightings of red deer, seals, otters and birds of prey.Portree is within easy reach and has a good range of shops and facilities including a secondary school. Inverness, about a two hour drive from the Skye Bridge, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe.THE CROFTThe croft land at 1 Balgowan extends to approximately 9.85 acres and lies between the public road and the loch. The land is currently used for sheep grazing and access is taken from the public road.OUTBUILDINGSThe barn, which lies within the croft land, is set on the southern boundary of the property and sits above the shores of Loch Beag. In this stunning coastal setting, the barn has potential for conversion and as a former Post Office, it is likely planning consent would be granted for residential use.
