As well as the farm's approx 399 acres, outbuildings including Dutch Barn with lean-to, an office, a workshop and livestock handling facilties, the current owners of the farm are in talks to develop the nearby North Sutor.

As described by Strutt & Parker the Sutors of Cromarty are: " two opposing headlands which mark the entrance to the Cromarty Firth.

"The North Sutor rises to 147 metres and lies within the boundary of Lot 3A. The gun emplacements on the Sutors were built in 1913 to stand guard over the firth as well as protect the fleet anchorage in the Cromarty Firth.

"The North Sutor was manned by the Royal Navy and was deemed to be a secret from potential enemies.

"It still carries the remains of substantial military gun emplacements, radar station, observation posts and batteries, which saw service during both World War I and, to a lesser degree, World War II, but was abandoned by the 1950s."

The vendors have held discussions with a travel and leisure company in relation to renovating and developing themed tourist accommodation and a visitors centre/restaurant building.

Drawings have been prepared by a firm of architects and are available from the selling agents.

The new owners may wish to continue these discussions with the developer and submit an application for planning permission to develop the site.

The farm also has a great location, near to the The Moray Firth, which is home to a resident population of Bottlenose dolphins.
