Description

We are delighted to offer an exciting opportunity to purchase an area of croft land in the sought after area of Rushgarry on the scenic isle of Berneray. Located in a prominent position and with its boundary to the shoreline of Beasdaire beach together with a good sized area of machair land and further rough grazings makes Churchcroft a desirable acquisition. There is also a share in the Rushgarry common grazings.

Crofting is a system of landholding unique to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland which is normally held on a tenancy. This may or may not include a house and farm buildings.

When looking to tenant a croft, a person must obtain the approval of the Crofting Commission . The Crofting Commission’s aim is to promote the well-being of crofting communities. They will consider several points when an application is received which include the specific needs and long term interests of the community, and the skills a new tenant will bring, suitability of the new tenant in terms of their experience and plans for the croft. The suitability of the proposed tenant is of prime importance and they will be asked to give plans for the working and stocking of the croft as well as previous experience and skills which would be useful to the township. The Commission are able to refuse an assignation if they feel the proposed tenant is not suitable.

The Berneray/Leverburgh ferry is within easy reach and Lochmaddy, which boasts two hotels, Doctors surgery, bank, primary school, and ferry terminal (Lochmaddy to Uig, Isle of Skye), is approximately 12 miles away.

Berneray is an enchanting island located in the Sound of Harris and is linked to North Uist by causeway. It is inhabited by around 120 people served by a local shop/cafe, post office, church, community centre and fortnightly doctor’s surgery. Local buses run regularly.

As well as its Gaelic speaking heritage, Berneray is traditionally a crofting island with a working harbour and a wealth of flora and fauna. See also and, _North_Uist
