Property Summary

A rare opportunity to purchase a substantial, serviced plot of land, with planning permission, in a stunning location with easy access to a multitude of outdoor activities and transport routes.

Summary of Plot

Superb plot situated just minutes from Culbin Forest, only 2.5miles from Nairn. Sitting in an elevated position, this substantial plot of 5175m2 (approximately 1.3 acres), is serviced and has planning permission to be divided into 2 house plots. (Highland Council Ref: 11/00926/FUL). A fabulous site for a large family home, or multi-generational property with family living next door. The house plans for the initial planning application no longer appear on the Highland Council planning portal. A subsequent planning application by the current owners Ref: 15/02554/FUL shows amended drawings that were approved.

The property is predominantly grass, with mature pine trees to 2 sides. The property extends beyond the line of pine trees to the west opening to a large triangular shape to the front. Level, with services in place, and a good access road, the property is ready for development.

Outdoor opportunities

Culbin Forest is approximately 9,000 acres of Forestry Commission property with outstanding opportunity for walking, cycling and horse riding.  A path leads into the Forest just minutes’ walk from the plot, providing access through to superb white beaches.

The Moray Firth offers fantastic opportunities for sailing and all manner of watersports. Skiing is available in the Cairngorm Mountains, approximately an hour from the plot.


The Inverness international airport at Dalcross, offering daily flights across the UK and Europe, is approximately 11.5 miles from the plot. Trains from Nairn, just 2.5 miles away, run to Aberdeen and Inverness, and from there to locations across the UK, including the daily sleeper train to London.

** Please note the following:

1) the property will not be sold as 2 separate plots and is being sold as one parcel of land that has planning permission for 2 houses. Highland Council has also subsequently approved planning for a single home.

2) the planning is "locked on" as development had previously started, therefore planning has not lapsed and is active.
