About this property
Thurso 18 miles. Resting on the outskirts of the pretty hamlet of Forsinard, in the Scottish Highlands, is this interesting listed croft dwelling which in its day was used as a school and a local place of worship. The property is situated within a small working croft where organic vegetables are grown and chickens and ducks roam freely. There are often crofting activities on-going and home grown vegetables and eggs available for purchase for a small fee. The croft working family love showing people around and introducing holiday makers to the chickens and ducks. Hugging the Croft boundaries is a picturesque river which is perfect for daily walks and very well known for its salmon fishing.
