This is a unique opportunity to acquire a superb serviced building plot in highly desirable and much sought after Rothiemurchus, across the River Spey from Aviemore.   

Detailed planning consent has been granted for a four bedroom detached property situated on the site of the original Loist Sawmill.  This generous plot adjoins North Rothiemurchus Pinewoods Site of Special Scientific Interest, the Cairngorms Natura 2000 area and benefits from a south westerly aspect offering open views to surrounding woodland and mountains as well as being within easy walking distance of nurseries, childcare and the local village community.

“One of the Glories of Wild Scotland” - Sir David Attenborough.  This prestigious family owned and managed estate is renowned for its exceptional cultural and natural heritage, the result of centuries of sustainable use and enjoyment by people making their living on the land in harmony with nature.

Rothiemurchus is a National Scenic Area and is one of the most important places of its size in Europe for nature conservation.  Over 80% of the land area and many of the buildings are protected for their national and international importance for habitat and species, design, history and architecture.

The communities of people who lived throughout Rothiemurchus woodland and forest, suffered from centuries of declining population and have only started to recover within the last fifty years.  There are now over a hundred homes in Rothiemurchus woodland.

Loch an Eilein and Loch Morlich are close by and the area can be enjoyed through a wide variety of sporting and recreational activities which are part of the group of businesses established on Rothiemurchus to care sustainably for the area through conscientious, progressive management.

Rothiemurchus Ranger Service welcomes and enables people to care for the environment sustainably, respect the interests of other people and understand responsible enjoyment and use of the land.

The Loist Sawmill

By living here you will be enabling other families to build a home of their own in the place they were brought up. The Loist Sawmill is an innovative project, the first in Scotland, through which homes that are affordable for local people living and working in the area can be self-built without government subsidy or other grant aid. It can only work because this plot is being made available for sale on the open market for use as a main residence only.
