Large house site extending to 0.65 acres (0.27 ha) with Planning Permission in Principle for a single or 1.5 storey dwelling house. The site has been decrofted.

Views across Loch na Claise to Clashmore, and across the minch towards the Western Isles.

Service connections (water, electricity, telephone) are in place. Drainage will be to a private sewage treatment system with soakaway, to be installed by the purchaser.

There is an access road with ‘bell mouth’ to the main (single track) road. The boundaries of the plot, which is fenced, are detailed on the site plans attached to the Planning Permission and Decrofting Direction for the house site, both of which are available on request.

Adjacent croft land may also be available. The croft land is being sold on an owner-occupied basis and therefore the consent of the Crofters Commission to the sale is not required. However, crofting regulations would continue to apply after sale.

There is currently a large steel frame agricultural shed on the croft behind the house site. This can be removed if required.
