  • Building plots on the Cove peninsula
  • Stunning sea, island and mountain views
  • Peaceful location
  • Loch and sea fishing

    The sites are on the coastline road of the Peninsula some 8 miles North of the village of Poolewe, and are sited with views over Loch Ewe, to the East and South, whilst enjoying the shelter from the Northwest. From this location, overlooking the sea loch, the settlement of Aultbea around to Mellon Charles is viewed on the opposite shoreline, with the majestic profile of the 3483ft An Teallach mountain in the background.

    Each plot measures 0.200 ha (0.494 of an acre), are accessed via a shared access track leading from the main road through Cove, and both are subject to decrofting. Outline planning consent has been granted (21/05263/PIP and 21/05264/PIP).

    There is the possibility that the sale of the remainder of the owner occupied croft would be considered by the Vendor, should a prospective purchaser wish to acquire it with a plot, or the croft and both plots as a package; with the sale price being negotiated at the time.


    This rural community is situated on the shores of Loch Ewe in the magnificent scenery of Wester Ross. The nearby village of Poolewe benefits from a Post Office/general store, a coffee shop, a hotel, village hall and an indoor swimming pool, all of which are only a short distance of 8 miles from Cove. The world famous Inverewe Gardens, where you can enjoy a wander, are also in Poolewe.
    Primary schooling is available in the village, with a nursery in nearby Aultbea, and primary and secondary schooling at Gairloch, where you will find more shops, restaurants, a heritage museum, a golf course and churches. From the pier, fishing and whale watching trips can be arranged. The Highland capital city of Inverness is approximately 83 miles distant and offers all city facilities which include links by road, rail and air to further destinations. There are also regular bus connections. Ullapool is approximately 50 miles distant.

    There are walks of all standards in the area, ranging from Munros to gentle strolls along beaches and rivers. The peninsula and the surrounding area is an ideal location for golf, cycling, fishing, bird-watching or just relaxing.; whilst the locality of Cove itself offers a rich and varied range of pursuits, such as mountain climbs and a wide choice of hills for rambling and walking. Also a short path walk on the other side of the coast road, just in front of the plots, are several fine examples of rock caves.

    Just a short half mile walk (or drive!) to the tip of the peninsula stands evidence of the second world war activities – lookout points, gun implacements and concrete installations still stand as a reminder of the importance this sea loch played in the defence of the North Atlantic. On the opposite Aultbea peninsula, matching structures command a similar vantage point, which gave complete protection of the inner Loch Ewe.

    There are well stocked trout lochs on the hill just above the croft site, and wonderful rocky and sandy bays for sea fishing. The sheltered Loch Ewe (sea loch) offers excellent sailing conditions, with a slipway very conveniently situated across the road for sailing enthusiasts. All in all, a peninsula to be enjoyed.


    Plots 1 and 2 benefit from services close by. No warranty is given and interested parties should make their own enquiries of service providers as to the availability and cost of services or any wayleaves that may be required. The property/plot will be served by a septic tank and reedbed system (a percolation report is available on request to prospective purchasers).

    Access to the plots is gained from the main road running through from Inverasdale to Cove.


    Planning in principle has been approved (Highland Council Planning 21/05263/PIP and 21/05264/PIP). It should be noted that both plots are subject to decrofting.
