A COASTAL block of grazing ground, foreshore, two small beaches and approximately 0.5 miles of frontage onto Dunnet Bay, Castletown, near Thurso, has launched to the market, totalling approximately 30.71 acres.

Senior associate director, estates and farms agency at Strutt & Parker, who are handling the sale, Euan MacCrimmon, commented: “The site offers a truly rare opportunity to purchase your own piece of foreshore in a beautiful part of the Scottish Highlands.

“Situated overlooking the most northerly point of Great Britain, Dunnet Head, and close to the North Coast 500, combined with access to some of the best surfing in the UK, means we expect to see a high interest from lifestyle buyers.”

Dunnet Bay is a sweeping arc of white sandy beach back by rolled sand dunes, which offers great opportunities to enjoy coastal sports. Thurso is the nearest town and provides a whole range of amenities. Three main ferry services connect Thurso to the enchanting Orkney Islands on a daily basis – Scrabster, Gills Bay and John O’Groats. The islands are home to world-famous historical sites and offers a variety of activities on land, loch and sea including impressive wildlife. The sporting rights are included in the sale insofar as they are owned.
