Insh is a quiet highland village set within the spectacular scenery of the Cairngorms National Park in the heart of the Highlands.  Located on the B970 between Kingussie and Kincraig, Insh Village is close to both the Insh Marshes National Nature Reserve – one of the most important wetlands in Europe – and the Loch Insh Watersports centre, a popular holiday and sporting destination.

Kingussie, the capital of Badenoch, is approximately 4 miles away where local facilities can be found, such as schools (primary and high school), shops, restaurants, cafe’s, community sports centre, doctor and dentist surgeries, bowling green, tennis courts and 18 hole golf course.

These two plots offer a rare opportunity to build a new property (or 2 properties) within the popular village of Insh. Located in the middle of the village, just off the main street, the plots enjoy spectacular views over the valley to the Monadhliath Hills.  Extending to approximately 0.39 acre each, the plots have Planning Permission in Principle for a detached dwelling and are serviced with mains water, drainage and electricity.

The following are some of the conditions which have to be met with regards to detailed planning permission:

Walls to be finished predominantly in a white/off-white wet-dash render/smooth coursed cement render/natural stone
A roof covering of natural slate
Single storey or 1.5 storeys in height
Windows with a strong vertical emphasis
A roof symmetrically pitched of not less than 40 degrees and not greater than 45 degrees.
Predominantly rectangular in shape with traditional gable ends
