A rare opportunity to construct a striking new home on land with direct frontage to Loch Awe, an existing stone jetty and riparian fishing rights


Kilchrenan is a small, tranquil village on the north side of Loch Awe, reached via a six-mile long section of the B845 road through Glen Nant from the A85 at Taynuilt. The village has a primary school and church, two excellent loch-side hotels nearby which are noted for the quality of their cuisine, and a stylish and newly refurbished inn. Loch Awe is Scotland’s longest fresh water loch and one of its most picturesque with wooded shores and numerous small islands which can be explored by boat. It is also noted for the quality of its trout fishing. The entire area is one of great natural beauty and provides almost unlimited scope for outdoor sporting and leisure pursuits. The nearby village of Taynuilt offers a good range of amenities with the principal West Highland town of Oban providing a more comprehensive selection of shops, leisure facilities and professional services.

This is a rare opportunity to construct a striking new home on land with direct frontage to Loch Awe with an existing stone jetty and riparian fishing rights. The latter allows owners, or others with their consent, to fish for fresh water species from their own shore or anywhere on the loch by a boat launched from their own shore.

The plot extends to a little over three quarters of an acre and is situated approximately one mile south of the village inn on a minor single-track public road which terminates at Taychreggan Hotel, one of the loch-side establishments referred to above which is within walking distance. The wooded site runs from the roadside to the loch shore and has a made-up vehicle track to facilitate boat launching adjacent to the well constructed jetty.

Planning Permission was granted for the construction of a new split-level house and detached garage/boathouse on the site on 27 October 2014. This consent, its conditions, plans etc can be viewed on-line at www.argyll- by using the planning reference 14/02010/PP. It should be noted that implementation of the consent, which exists in perpetuity, requires the existing timber boathouse/garage on the site to be demolished.

Services: The site is offered for sale unserviced. There is a Wayleave in place to take the electricity supply from the grounds of neighbouring Cuil Cottage. Mains water is also available nearby. Drainage is to be to a new septic tank.

Guide Price: One Hundred and Eighty Thousand Pounds (£180,000). Offers are invited and should be submitted to the Selling Agents.
