Online Property Auctions Scotland are delighted to present this large plot of land in Watten, Caithness - roughly 2.25 acres available for a discount price.
The land is partially crofted with planning permission in principle for a house to be built on the de-crofted area - Planning documents can be found on the Highland Council website - Reference 20/01884/PIP - or can be downloaded with the legal pack.
This would be the perfect opportunity to build your dream home in the gorgeous Highland village of Watten, which lies on the main road between the towns of Wick and Thurso - providing a quiet and secluded location.
Both towns are popular stops along the North Coast 500 route and popular tourist destinations due to their close proximity to John O'Groats - there may be potential to create a holiday let or Bed and Breakfast subject to permission.
Wick is a former Viking settlement in the far North of Scotland with a population of roughly 7,333 people - a perfect town for someone looking to get away from busy cities. The town sits alongside the River Wick, making it a prime location for sports such as kayaking, windsurfing and sand-yachting along its beautiful white beaches. Wick is also home to the famous Pulteney Distillery which has been producing traditional malt whisky since 1826.
You can also visit the 15th-17th century ruins of the Sinclair and Girnigoe Castles which sit above the cliff tops and offer a popular hiking trail for both tourists and locals.
Thurso is another small town in the far north of Scotland with a population of roughly 7,600. The town is a great base for exploring the Scottish Highland countryside as well as being host to many lovely traditional shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Both towns have train stations with routes to the city of Inverness, providing travel between the towns and the rest of Scotland. Thurso also has ferry connections to the Orkney Islands and both are only a 20-30 minute drive from John O’Groats - the most northernly point of mainland Scotland - both of which are well-known tourist attractions.

By setting a proxy bid, the system will automatically bid on your behalf to maintain your position as the highest bidder, up to your proxy bid amount. If you are outbid, you will be notified via email so you can opt to increase your bid if you so choose.
If two of more users place identical bids, the bid that was placed first takes precedence, and this includes proxy bids.
Another bidder placed an automatic proxy bid greater or equal to the bid you have just placed. You will need to bid again to stand a chance of winning.
