Remote but in Community -
Croft for sale
Do you want to live on six acres in an outstandingly beautiful and unspoilt part of Scotland? Do you want to live somewhere that is both remote and
connected, where both solitude and community can easily be found? Are you attracted to the challenge and simplicity of living off-grid, in a place where you park your car and either walk three and a half miles along a mountain footpath to reach your home, or cross Little Loch Broom in a boat?
If the answer to these questions is Yes, then
Guardian Croft on the Scoraig peninsula may be for
you. More in this pdf
