Charming one-bedroom cottage flat with waterfront garden on Kyle of Sutherland

Situated just on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Bonar Bridge, this quirky apartment is in an ideal location to enjoy the many benefits of this unique landscape.

The house was constructed in 1900 and is part of a small block of three apartments spread over two floors. Number 1 Gairs Building is on the ground floor and has a small private garden area to the rear of the property.

With an entrance directly from Lairg Road, the property opens onto a long hallway with tongue and groove panelling.

There is a lovely sitting room which is decorated in a neutral palette and has all the elements of a traditional cottage living area, including a working open fire, a tiled mantelpiece, and a fantastic view right across the Kyle of Sutherland to the mountains to the west.

A comparatively large kitchen is to the rear of the property and overlooks the small garden. Arranged in a U-shape layout, the kitchen features several floor and wall cabinets. The kitchen offers the potential to upgrade, and its generous space could allow for several new designs, including space for seating and dining.

The shower room is decorated in blue and has some panelling. The sanitary ware is white, and the shower has a mixer unit. A deep-set window and ledge allow the shower room to be light-filled.

A pretty bedroom features a glazed patio door offering direct access to the rear garden. This charming room has a small built-in cupboard and neutral decor. Facing a stone wall, and offering privacy and shelter, the small garden to the rear has the potential of a fantastic space for relaxing.

The star attraction of this lovely property is its paddock style garden that leads down to the Kyle of Sutherland. Just a short walk away across the road, the timber gated garden is approached by steps and is laid with grass and mature shrubs. It slopes down to the water, offering a fabulous view of the estuary and toward the west of Scotland, ensuring a breathtaking view of the sunsets this area is famed for. The river is also well known for its trout and salmon, and fishing permits may be available locally.

Number 1 Gairs Building is a simply decorated charming home with huge potential. This fabulous and affordable property offers a single person or a couple a delightful first property or a bolt-hole for someone who loves all the outstanding opportunities this location benefits from.

About Bonar Bridge

Bonar Bridge is a peaceful village north of the Dornoch Firth and in the Sutherland Council area. About 50 miles north of Inverness, the area offers good connections to the city and the neighbouring communities of Dornoch and Tain, 13 and 15 miles away, respectively.

Picturesque, and popular with visitors, the village is known for its beautiful setting, especially the panoramic views and open clear skies. Historically an essential hub for trade and transport due to its location, Bonar Bridge has also become a focal point for those seeking iconic Highland experiences, including fishing, golf, walking, photography, and artistic pursuits. Its surrounding landscapes, serene riverbanks, and wildlife make it an attractive spot for locals and visitors interested in these and more.

With a population of about 1600, the village is a close-knit community of locals and an attractive destination for holidaymakers, making tourism an apartment aspect of its culture and economy. The village is also well provided with local shops and services, including doctors, a dentist, a pharmacy, and a village primary school. Secondary education is at Dornoch Academy, 13 miles away. More comprehensive services can be found in Tain.
Public transport is well supported in the area, with regular buses running to Durness in the far north of Scotland, and to Tain and Inverness. Trains can be taken from neighbouring Ardgay, just a few minutes away. Road networks are well-serviced and have good access in all directions, being just 15 minutes from the A9.
