Full Description: SOLD - 158 Acres, 300 year old, last remaining traditional longhouse. I think farming has been carried out on this site for more than 400 years. The croft complex has a very interesting walled 1 mile straight access road off road to thurso (not included in any sites but I'm not aware if it has been sold but I strongly think not, which suggests the site could be very ancient. Many Viking and Pictish ancient sites nearby. If these people wanted a place to stay then this site makes much sense.) Business oportunities: Wind Turbines on the hill accessed by unmetalled road built on rock, not peat bog. Land untreated with chemicals since mid 1960's so small scale organic farming is possible; both niche crops and sheep farming. Has large untouched flock of grouse as my old Aunt loved them and did not let anyone shoot them. Abundant natural spring well on the land which my relatives drank from daily and lived to 95 plus on average! Niche market commercial spring water business. Possible Mountain Bike Centre and Hillwalking low cost base in the summer. Natural Beauty and Enchanted 500 year old forest just over the east boundary wall where rare flora and fauna exist. Spiritual retreat Make cozy home once repaired and the Aga fired up again. This is the last remaining long house and is grade 'A' listed and on the buildings at risk register. Is is of historic national importance. Expressions of Interest Close TODAY (November 4th 2011), please contact www.georgesons.co.uk
