A former railway station is offering house-hunters and business owners the chance to steam ahead to create a dream property from an iconic property.

The unique Ross-shire property, which is on the market with Inverness based agents, Bell Ingram, for offers in the region of £160,000, offers buyers the perfect opportunity for development.

Coming complete with a modern extension and a two bedroom apartment, the property is ideal for buyers looking for a renovation project, whether it be to transform the property into a large family home or use the extensive space for a business.


Though in need to upgrading, the station building and modern extension, which was put in place 15 years ago, comes with six rooms offering an ideal space for small businesses.

Joanne Stennett, Property Manager for Bell Ingram in Inverness, said: “The Station Building is certainly one of our more unique and unusual properties.

“It really offers a blank canvas and there is an endless list of what can be done with the property (subject to necessary consents).

“Commercial buyers could start up any number of businesses; there could be potential for a quirky boutique or a gift shop which would be perfect for catching the tourist trade.

“Once renovated, it has potential to make a beautiful two bed flat with an office space perfect for smaller businesses.

“There is also scope for the creative house-hunters to make the property into a larger family home for bigger families.”


A small hamlet at the head of Loch Carron, Strathcarron has shops, a post office, bank and a primary school, offering buyers the main essentials and amenities on their doorstep.

Inverness is located around 65 miles away and can be easily reached by car or by train from Strathcarron Station.

For those looking to explore, the hamlet offers quick and easy access to the West Highlands, such as the Isle of Skye, Torridon, Plockton and Applecross.

The area is also a paradise for hill walkers, anglers and birdwatchers as they can enjoy some of the finest scenery and richest wildlife that Scotland has to offer.

Viewings are strictly by appointment only and can be arranged through Bell Ingram’s Inverness office on 01463 717799.


Established 112 years ago, Bell Ingram has 130 professional staff across 11 UK offices, including chartered surveyors, estate and forestry managers, architects, building surveyors, Tourism and green energy specialists.
