Brough Croft

Wick, Caithness, KW1 5PT

Region of £82,000


A registered owner-occupier croft (register number C1087) close to the outskirts of Wick.

The registered croft land is approximately 6 hectares (15 acres) surrounding the decrofted house and garden ground.

The derelict dwellinghouse consists of joined, traditionally constructed buildings in need of major renovation internally as well as works to roof and windows/doors to be rendered habitable. Alternatively subject to building and planning permissions the property could be demolished and replaced entirely.

The property is on the top of a rise and has an excellent rural aspect; the small number of neighbouring houses alone the public road leading from the main A99 to the croft means that the property is private without being isolated. The town is a few minutes away by motor vehicle and within walking distance for anyone in good health.

The croft land (excluding house and garden) is subject to the usual long sporting lease in favour of Hempriggs Estate, although these rights have not been exercised by the estate during the last 20 years.

A rare opportunity to purchase a workable croft close to the town of Wick, ideal for smallholding or keeping horses.
