The primarily north westerly sloping topography affords an opportunity to exploit site levels and capitalise on potentially spectacular views to the south.

The remaining 49.7 Acres (20.11 Ha) provides significant potential biodiversity value through the establishment of a new species rich native woodland.


Extending in total to approximately 53.08 Acres (21.48 Ha), the site currently consists an agricultural barn/shed and silo sitting, with the adjoining paddocks extending to approximately 3.38 Acres (1.37 Ha) upon which planning permission for the erection of a new house has been granted. The remaining land is a mixture of existing woodland and open hill, which is considered to have potential for a new native broadleaf woodland creation scheme, or for continued use as extensive grazings.


Approximately 3.38 Acres (1.37 Ha)

The site is bounded by the A886 road to the north, tall spruce trees to the north east and the Allt a' Chaol

Ghlinne burn to the south and west. Access is taken directly off the A886 with a new driveway, turning point and parking for three vehicles provided to be formed as part of the existing planning permission. A track extends from the driveway to Lot 2 crossing the burn and utilising an existing bridge. The site’s open aspect to the south provides the eventual purchaser with an opportunity to capitalise on the potentially stunning views and benefit from natural heat and light. being exposed to morning sun, and evening light as it sets behind the hills to the west.


The planning permission (full details of which can be accessed via Argyll & Bute Council’s Planning Portal under reference: 21/01989/PP) provides for a two-storey stone and timber clad house comprising master suite with dressing area and en-suite shower room, open library/office area, double bedroom with en-suite shower room on the first floor, with a bright entrance hallway with useful storage, two large double bedrooms and a generous shower room on the ground floor. A glazed linking corridor takes you to a single storey large open plan kitchen/dining and living area, all flooded with natural light from the skylights above and the large south facing windows.

The building has been designed with dark stained Siberian Larch cladding and natural stone cladding to ground floor walls which should complement the elegant proportions of the building, allowing them to blend well with the textures and tones of the surrounding landscape.


The remaining land extends to approximately 49.7 Acres (20.11 Ha) with access taken over the bridge at Allt a' Chaol Ghlinne. Ranging between 93m and 120m above sea level and is classified by the James Hutton Institute Land Classification Scale as Grade 6 which is broadly recognised as capable for use as rough grazings but equally has robust potential for native woodland creation, ecological habitat restoration and ultimately biodiversity net gain.
