Property Description

We are delighted to offer for sale a detached single storey croft house preferably sold together with the tenancy of the surrounding croft land however the current tenant is willing to decroft the house and sell it separately if required. Benefitting from oil fired central heating and Upvc double glazing throughout, the property is situated within easy reach of local amenities. Boasting three bedrooms, a spacious lounge, bathroom and a kitchen/diner this property will appeal to a wide range of purchasers.

The croft tenancy extends to some 2.6 Ha of in-bye land together with a share in the Kilphedar and Benkenneth common grazings. There are open views over croft land in all directions.
Crofting is a system of landholding unique to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland which is normally held on a tenancy. When looking to tenant a croft, a person must obtain the approval of the Crofting Commission The Crofting Commission’s aim is to promote the well-being of crofting communities. They will consider several points when an application is received which include the specific needs and long term interests of the community, and the skills a new tenant will bring, suitability of the new tenant in terms of their experience and plans for the croft. The suitability of the proposed tenant is of prime importance and they will be asked to give plans for the working and stocking of the croft as well as previous experience and skills which would be useful to the township. The Commission are able to refuse an assignation if they feel the proposed tenant is not suitable.

Kilphedar is a crofting township lying on the western side of South Uist and is approx. 3 miles from Daliburgh where there is a doctor’s surgery, primary school, supermarket and post office.
