The property sits in approx 2 acres and is sufficient land for self sustainable living.

Situated in a stunning location, beside the stream known as Abhainn an r-Stratha Charnaig, running from Loch Buidhe, through Torboll Falls and Torboll salmon ladder to the coastal waters of Loch Fleet, surrounded by stunning views of the Creag Dail na Meine & Beinn Domhnaill hills, offering a peaceful and idyllic setting.


A traditional stone built cottage in need of renovation to take it in to the 21st century. The property could be updated to a cosy Highland Cottage or extended for family living (with appropriate planning consents). The house would need to be taken back to the stone walls and a new layout created within the walls.

There is no Home Report for this property as it is uninhabitable in its present condition. From the surveyor ' where the way the home is marketed suggests it is unsuitable for occupation in that condition. There is little point in a condition survey being undertaken on a home that is unfit for occupation in any case, and is being advertised as such.'


Brae Cottage sits nestled in the hills of Sutherland, nearby a stream/burn with an abundance of wildlife on the doorstep. The single track road is infrequently used, and provides a route between The Mound (A9) and Bonar Bridge. The villages of Golspie 6 miles north and Dornoch 8 miles east have all the local amenities. Tain 14 miles south has major supermarkets.
