Plots for sale in the popular coastal hamlet of Scarfskerry. Each plot has planning in principle for a house with garage and access road. The plots are approximately two thirds of an acre in size and all plots are accessed directly off the public road. Mains water and power supplies are nearby and a private drainage system will need to be installed on each plot. The plots are situated on a scenic route. Scarfskerry boasts an attractive harbour and offers coastal walks along virtually the entire length of the shoreline. To the western end there is a quiet beach. Bus services pass through the village and there is a hotel and small shop in the adjacent village of Mey. Crossroads Primary School is just over a mile away.
Nearby is the Castle of Mey which was built between 1566 and 1572 by George, the fourth Earl of Caithness, it became the family home of Sinclair of Mey. In 1789 the elder line of the Mey family became extinct and for a century it was the seat of the local earldom. It was in a state of some decay when the Queen Mother bought it in 1952, shortly after the death of King George Vl. The building was restored and was now the Queen mother's Highland holiday home until her death.
