Completely ‘Off grid’ Scottish Highland hideaway 168 acre estate for sale for £650,000 just as it is revealed nowhere in Britain is more than 6 miles from a road
Today The Sunday Times reported “we are never further than six miles from a road anywhere on the mainland” in Britain according to research by Ordnance Survey.
With our wildernesses depleted and our countryside overtaken by invading tourists, those seeking to truly live off the beaten track could do worse than consider purchasing a Scottish property on the shores of Loch Shin, near Lairg that has rather whackily been named ‘Harris Highland Dream.’
Constructed with larch cladding and a black painted sinusoidal roof, this entirely off-grid house has solar panels that feed a generator for electricity. Water comes from a bore hole and with 168 acres of land with fishing rights for brown trout, deer stalking and shooting rights, there is the possibility to live completely sustainably.
Aside from a vast 34’5-foot open planning living-kitchen-dining space, 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, the two-storey house has a garage and gun safe. Previously planning was granted for a second property and in addition firewood to stoke the wood burning stove can be supplied from the estate’s birch woodland.
“Harris Highland Dream is a stunning home, perfect for a family or simply as an escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.”
“Being located just 12 miles from the peaceful village of Lairg, a crossroads for the north and west coasts of Scotland, and only 54 miles from Inverness, the property is accessible for those exploring all the Highlands has to offer.”
The agents seek £650,000 ($826,000, €737,000 or درهم3million) for this genuinely remote hideaway.
