An idyllic Eco home together with 14.8 acres (6 Ha) of croftland situated in a stunning position on the North West Coast of the Scottish Highlands overlooking some of the finest scenery imaginable.

This is an exceptional architect designed property set in a rugged landscape with mesmerizing views across the sea towards the outer Hebrides on the distant horizon. The house is close to the beautiful unspoilt beaches of Stoer Bay, Clashnessie, Clachtoll and Achmelvich and just off the popular North Coast 500 route a few miles from Stoer Lighthouse.

The area is well known the world over for its natural beauty and abundance of wildlife. The property sits within the north west highlands Geopark and the iconic mountains of Sutherland: Suilven, Canisp and Quinag, are within easy reach. Designed by Helen Lucas Architects in 2011-12 for the present owners, care was taken to ensure that the house would sit lightly in the landscape and to blend sensitively with the local vernacular style of housing. The house has a wonderfully calm atmosphere and provides light-filled and comfortable accommodation. A welcoming reception hall leads to the spectacular open plan living room with 5m wide picture windows and full height ceiling supported by handcrafted Carpenter Oak & Woodland exposed oak scissor trusses. The contemporary bespoke kitchen includes a large peninsula with a cantilevered solid wood breakfast bar. There are Silestone worktops and Siemens integrated electric induction hob, oven & larder fridge. The main body of the house is clad in Scottish larch with a covered veranda for outdoor dining and wooden decking. In the rendered smaller volume is the main bedroom with an en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a separate accessiible shower room. The first floor mezzanine is a useful home office, TV & cinema space and occasionally used as a fourth bedroom. The house is constructed to be highly energy efficient, it is well insulated and draught proofed, all the windows are double-glazed low maintenance aluminium clad wood. Internal features includes solid oak wood flooring with underfloor heating throughout powered by a Mitsubishi air source heat pump. Additional heating is provided by a Clearview wood burning stove. The entrance hall has plenty of space for outdoor clothing and boots and the large utility room provides storage, laundry facilities, freezer and a pulley clothes airer.

This property has 14.826 acres of land.


The property is situated 300yards from the main road down a small lane. Turning off the lane, the gravelled driveway includes parking for several vehicles and leads to a large, detached garage/workshop. The garage has electricity and water and the extra height double doors allow the garage to be used as a boat shed. There is a fully floored loft. Adjacent to the garage is a timber-clad artist’s studio. The house, garden and 7.4 acres (3 Ha) of newly planted woodland surrounding the property is protected by drystone walling and deer-fencing. The garden blends seamlessly into the landscape and is designed for low maintenance, laid mainly to lawn with a small secret walled garden imaginatively planted with a wide range of flowering shrubs and perennials. A further 7.4 acres (3 Ha) of land to the south of the house is unfenced and comprises rocky outcrops of Lewissian Gneiss and open grazing down to the shore of Loch an Aigeil.
