It was in 1805 that the first plans were laid for Golspie village (Main Street). It was to be based on “the street of the Fishertown of Golspy” and was to consist of houses 50 feet by 20, each with a croft of ¾ acre – this later altered to three acres. The people were to build their house themselves. In addition to the individual crofts, it was intended to provide a common cow pasture.
The ‘stances’ on which the people were to build their houses were let from the Sutherland Estate at an annual rent of five shillings. The rules for the new houses stated that they must be built of stone and to make the fronts flush with the roadway.
Stags Head Hotel is more a B&B.
