OWNER OCCUPIED CROFT
Enjoying, arguably, one of the best views of Loch Linnhe and the surrounding mountains, Croft 19/20 at North Ballachulish, offers an exciting opportunity to purchase a generous, owner occupied croft, with derelict croft house and roofless stone byre. Split by the A82 road, between the crofting township of Old Town and down towards the shoreline, this attractive croft benefits from Planning Permission in Principle for the erection of a detached dwellinghouse, and extends to around 2.4 acres (0.97 Hectares).
Located in the desirable North Ballachulish area, with Fort William some 13 miles north and Glencoe 3 miles to the south, the property is well placed to take advantage of the numerous leisure and pleasure activities the area has to offer. North Ballachulish and the neighbouring village of Onich have a shop, post office, hotels, pubs and restaurants, with the local primary school nearby and secondary schools in Fort William and Kinlochleven.
Planning Permission was granted on 28th January 2019 (Ref: 18/03200/PIP) for the erection of a detached dwellinghouse. Copies of the planning permission are available with the selling agent or on the Highland Council Planning website – www.highland.gov.uk.
Mains electricity is on-site. Water and drainage is close by for connection. It is up to the successful purchaser to make enquires regarding all services and the cost of connection.
Please note that no part of the croft has been decrofted. It would be up to the successful purchaser to apply. A purchaser, as an owner occupier crofter, would have to comply with certain “statutory duties” including being ordinarily resident within 32km of the croft. Details can be found on the Crofting Commission’s website, www.crofting.scotland.gov.uk. Prospective purchasers are advised to seek legal advice on the implications of purchasing an owner occupied croft. Offers conditional upon a decrofting direction will not be accepted.
