Sutherland, KW14 7TH

Offers over £97,000

Three bedroom stone built detached decrofted crofthouse, part of a small rural township in the heart of the north Sutherland countryside.

The building has magnificent views of the strath and surrounding countryside, and is situated on a single track road in a row with neighbouring croft houses and small post office/shop. The property has many original features including traditional layout with original kitchen acting as living space equipped with Rayburn cooker and adjacent scullery equipped with stainless steel sink. The living room currently has electric fire set at the fireplace, which could be restored to operation with open fire or solid fuel burner. Two double bedrooms and a single bedroom provide the sleeping accommodation upstairs.

While currently habitable, the property would benefit from some renovation and modernisation. The main garden is on the slope at the front of the property, mainly laid to grass, and a small strip of garden ground at the rear and a further area to the side of the house.

Achtoty is a small township about a mile from the village of Skerray, in the northern coastal area of Sutherland. The nearest larger villages or towns are Tongue 10 miles westward, Bettyhill 8 miles eastward and Thurso about 40 miles eastward. The area, which is often described as “remote” or “isolated”, is almost completely rural with crofting, agriculture and forestry the main industries but has a number of resident artists spread about and strong local community activities.
