No 8 Ardmore is located on the edge of the village of Edderton approximately 7 miles north west of Tain. The property lies to the south of the Dornoch Firth with picturesque views of the surrounding countryside.This area of Ross-shire is known for its beautiful coastline, varied countryside, dry climate and fertile farmland and it offers all the benefits of living in a peaceful, unspoilt region. Tain has a good range of shops and amenities including major supermarkets, a railway station and schooling up to secondary level. Inverness, less than an hour’s drive away, has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the South and Europe.No 8 Ardmore extends to 17 hectares (42 acres) of owner-occupied croft land (Register No. R1266) which is classified as Grade 3.2 by the James Hutton Institute. The fields are divided into eight well-proportioned paddocks of permanent pasture providing good crops of hay and silage with a small paddock of rough grazing grassland. The land rises from approximately 2m to 8m above sea level at its highest point. Each paddock is served by a mains water trough.The croft is equipped with a small stone yard area and a modern steel portal framed shed (approximately 9m x 13.7m). The shed is served by mains electricity and water.No warranties will be provided in relation to the services.The land is classified as owner occupied croft land, whereby the owner is also the croft tenant. The purchaser would therefore become an owner-occupied crofter in terms of the Crofting Acts. This means that they are under a duty to be 1) ordinarily resident on or within 32 kilometres of the croft; 2) must not misuse or neglect the croft and; 3) actively manage the croft land. Prospective purchasers who have any concern in this regard should refer to the Crofting Commission for further information.
