A lighthouse keeper’s cottage in the Highlands boasting “beautiful” sea views has hit the market for £150,000.
The Principal Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage at Strathy Point, near Thurso, is said to provide “stunning panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean”, “fabulous scenic walks, and is “surrounded by unspoilt countryside”.
However, there is a catch – the property is located on the country’s northern coastline, around two miles away from the nearest village.
The three-bedroom home minutes away from a gorgeous beach also boasts a cosy lounge, an upgraded modern kitchen, bathroom, cloakroom, coal cellar, courtyard and garage.
The home is being sold by Harper Macleod estate agents advertised on Rightmove, and asks for offers in excess of £160,000.
“This is the perfect location to enjoy peace, relaxation and nature,” the listing reads.
“It is surrounded by unspoilt countryside and a great place for bird watching and whale, dolphin and seal spotting.
“There are fabulous scenic walks and a beautiful award-winning beach nearby. The dramatic cliffs with a natural arch are spectacular.”
It sits close to the famous NC500 route, making it a great stopping-off point for tourists – the estate agents say it has been run as a successful holiday home in the past.
“There are six properties within the Lighthouse, which was decommissioned in 2012,” the listing continues.
“The Village of Strathy is approximately two miles away and has a pub, café and an award-winning beach. A shop and a small restaurant can be found approximately 6.4 miles further along the coast at Melvich.
“Thurso is approximately 23.5 miles from the Lighthouse and has a good range of shops for supplies and services.”
