The Highland Council is delighted to have taken possession of a further ten new homes at Kinellan in Strathpeffer.

The phased handovers of small groups of properties in the Kinellan development have added a total of twenty-one new homes to the Council’s housing stock, including a range of wheelchair accessible properties and a number of family homes.

Funding for the new-builds has come from The Scottish Government and The Highland Council.

Thanks goes to HHA, Bracewell Stirling, Compass Building and Construction Services, Stuart Burke and Kiloh Associates, Helica and Armour and Partners for their dedication to this project of delivering affordable and energy-efficient homes in the Highlands.

Chair of the Council’s Wester Ross, Strathpeffer and Lochalsh Committee, Councillor Cockburn visited the site to look around the last properties to be handed over.

He said: “It’s great to see the development finished and tenants moving in. We are short of good social housing in the Highlands, so this is an excellent addition to Strathpeffer and Ward 5. I hope to see an introduction of more social housing to Ward 5 in the future.”
