Nick Goldthorpe and Re/Max Elite are delighted to have been asked to bring to the market this affordable 9 acre croft, located in the township of Midclyth Lybster. The land comes with a number of ruinous buildings and is enclosed by fencing. There is pre-application consent for a 3 bedroomed dwelling house to be situated on the area of the ruinious buildings. This land would be an ideal for a self build house with the potential to expand. It would equally be suitable as a holiday investment, being on the North Coast 500 route. The land has lots of potential and will appeal to a wide audience and can only be fully appreciated by viewing. Full Panning and Crofting consents should be applied for by the purchaser.

About Lybster
Lybster is set on the east coast of Caithness in the far north of Scotland. It is accessed by the A9, the main road north from Perth, past Inverness, traveling further north following the wild and rugged coastline to Wick and Thurso. Historically, local landowner General Patrick Sinclair planned Lybster village in 1802, with its main economy being herring and crofting. The main street is abnormally wide giving it a village square feel. There is still a strong community spirit in the Lybster area, community members organise a variety annual events, hobby clubs and entertainment. With its remote and breath taking coastline, the area offers magnificent forest and moorland walks and an abundance of wildlife. For the history buff, there is archaeology and historic sites scattered throughout Caithness. Cited as one of the best places to see the Northern Lights, Caithness offers the quiet life, with beautiful countryside and spectacular views over the North Sea cliffs and beaches. In and around Lybster you will find a Primary School, medical centre, a historic harbour and lighthouse, a Nine hole golf course laid out in 15 acres of land, a pub and several cafes that serve fresh delicious local produce. There is a main line railway station and bus depot, together with airport facilities which can be obtained in the nearby town of Wick. The Highland capital of Inverness is approximately 70 miles to the south.
