About the Property
A two bedroomed, detached cottage on the uninhabited island of Horrisdale off the coast of Gairloch.
We are delighted to present this one of a kind, unique opportunity to purchase a property on the island of Horrisdale off the coast of Badachro. 4 Isle Horrisdale is a two bedroomed detached cottage that was fully rebuilt and modernised between 2015 and 2021. The renovation has been completed to a very high standard and has provided the property with a clean, light, modern feel but is still in keeping with the traditional style of the building. This property will perfectly suit anyone looking for an escape from the commotion of modern life, while providing all of the comforts one expects from a family home such as double glazing, central heating, and full electrical services provided by solar panels and a generator. The internal accommodation opens into the open-plan kitchen/diner/lounge. This open living space is perfect for entertaining and features a wood burning stove and a fully equipped kitchen including a gas cooker with hob, under-counter freezer, fridge, splashbacks, base mounted units with worktops, and a stainless steel sink with mixer tap and drainer. Both the lounge and kitchen spaces have windows to the front elevation allowing for plenty of natural light. From the lounge, stairs lead up to the upstairs accommodation which consists of two double bedrooms and shower room. Both bedrooms are double aspect with Velux rooflights to the rear elevation which gives these rooms a bright and airy feel. The shower room features a walk-in shower, heated towel rail, WC, and a pedestal wash hand basin. Externally, the garden to the front elevation is laid to lawn and is partially enclosed by mature trees, and sighted here are two garden sheds which are included in the sale. Isle Horrisdale is an 80+ acre island off the coast of Badachro, Wester Ross. The island was officially listed as uninhabited in 2011 by the National Records of Scotland. There are 6 privately owned dwellings on the island each of which has its own boat and mooring arrangements. Access is a short boat ride from Badachro Jetty. There are no roads or public services on the island providing any residents a true ‘off-grid’ experience. The nearest town is Gairloch, which is eight miles away, and the nearest city is Inverness which is approximately a 1.5 hour drive.
