Gin Head, EH39


Property Details

House (13 bedrooms)

Set atop one of the most dramatic coastlines in the country, Gin Head is a unique plot in Scotland which offers a motley of wildly thrilling development propositions. Truly a diamond in the rough, the property itself has a fascinating past, originally founded as an Admiralty signals base in 1943… the perfect ‘evil lair’ if ever we saw one! The plot sits almost solitary in one of the most visually compelling sites in Britain, surrounded by sensational rock formations, emerald cliffs and mesmerising, infinite seas; its closest neighbour is the monumental ruins of Tantallon Castle, perched on the clifftop 300-metres to the east of Gin Head.

Gin Head is a significant landmark that has already been granted full planning permission, with architecturally explicit plans developed by Lazzarini Pickering Architetti to create an iconic, visionary living space. Possibilities here are endless: it would make a fantastic family retreat, secluded work / inventing space, recording studio, artist’s studio or even a commercial enterprise like a boutique hotel, art gallery, health facility or luxury spa.
