An extensive Wester Ross sporting estate has just come onto the market.

Complete with its own beach and five hill lochs, located on a beautiful stretch of Scotland’s northern coastline, it is available via Strutt & Parker.

Offers of more than £900,000 are requested from interested parties.

Euan MacCrimmon, senior associate director at Inverness-based Strutt & Parker, said: “With buyers on the lookout for open space, the market for Scottish estates has been nothing but remarkable in recent years.

"Demand continues to outstrip supply and, with interest from green investors, institutions and lifestyle buyers, this shows no signs of slowing.

“If the opportunity to own just over 7,000 acres in a stunning part of the Scottish Highlands alone wasn’t enough to persuade you, Sands Estate has all the components you could want from a Scottish sporting estate and more already in place.

"Its mile-long stretch of beach, hill lochs, and the potential to integrate environmental opportunities make this an exceptional prospect for all types of buyer.”

Sands Estate extends to approximately 7156 acres of land, which is located four miles to the north of Gairloch, a small coastal village in the Highlands.

The views from the estate are exceptional and far reaching in all directions. The Isle of Skye can be seen from the west and An Teallach and the Torridon mountains can be seen to the east and south respectively.

A particular feature of the estate is the opportunity to own a stunning beach named Seana Chamas, which is approximately one mile in length.

The area around Gairloch is known for its beautiful white beaches, and Seana Chamas is no different. It will prove popular with individuals who enjoy water sports, swimming or wildlife.

The estate also includes five attractive hill lochs, with the largest being Loch an t-Seana Bhaile situated towards the southern boundary of the subjects. These hill lochs have considerable amenity with trout fishing opportunities.

There is a mobile phone mast on the estate, which provides additional income. The site is currently leased to EE.

The majority of the rest of the estate is regulated crofted common grazings. The common grazings are the Big Sands, North Erradale and Aultgrishan and Aultanphadric grazings.

Further details on the common grazings and the mobile phone mast are available from the selling agent.
