For a quarter of a million dollars, a little secluded shepherd’s home with no power is up for sale.
A SHEPHERD’S COTTAGE WITHOUT ELECTRICITY has been listed on the market for a quarter of a million pounds.
With rocky mountains towering into the distance, a little two-bedroom home in Sutherland, Highlands, is surrounded by some of Scotland’s most dramatic and breathtaking vistas.
It is also close to the River Runie and is located just off the A835, which is part of the famous NC500 scenic route around Scotland’s north coast.
The cottage is situated on six acres of property with beautiful fauna, including rare and endangered species, as well as a timber barn and a typical stone barn with a tin roof.
The hideaway, on the other hand, is in in need of a complete refurbishment and is without electricity.
“Shepherd’s Cottage is a classic Highland cottage in a magnificent location,” said Claire Macdonald of Galbraith, who is handling the sale.
“The property requires complete refurbishment and gives the possibility to upgrade into a modern country home or potentially rebuild totally, subject to the relevant consents.
“Given the beauty of the setting and its prime location on the NC500 route, there is clear potential to develop a tourism business or simply to create your own private sanctuary in one of Scotland’s most celebrated settings.” The plot is approximately 5.94 hectares (14.68 acres) in size and consists primarily of rough grazing land with some naturally regenerating woodland and rocky outcrops.
Ullapool, which is around 10 miles distant, offers a grocery, primary and secondary schools, as well as popular restaurants and cafés.
Inverness is about an hour and a half away by vehicle and has all of the amenities of a contemporary city, including an airport, a train station, and numerous high-street shops.
Shepherd’s Cottage is for sale at Galbraith for £250,000 or more.
