The properties are being advertised from today ( Thursday 18 October 2012). There are a range asking prices and some of the properties are subject to early closing dates. Details of all the buildings available for sale can be found on the Properties for Sale webpage on the home page of the Council's web site: or here.

A former council office building and site is available for purchase in Victoria Road, Brora. The Council believes it may offer an investment or development opportunity.

The former school and schoolhouse at Diabeg, West Ross, is also for sale, with an asking price of 190,000. The property comprises a detached former school & schoolhouse of one and three quarter storey design of stone & slate construction built in the late 1800s.
