The land at 1 Lealt spans the township road with the decrofted area above the road and the croftland below.

This site offers the potential for development subject to any necessary planning consent that may be required.  There is no existing planning permission on the site and it will be the purchasers’ responsibility to make applications in this regard.  All responsibility for the connection and supply of services will be the responsibility of the purchaser.

There are uninterrupted panoramic views over the surrounding croftland to the Trotternish Ridge and the Old Man of Storr.
