Woodcroft is a substantial house of modern timber framed construction under a slate roof and provides most spacious family sized accommodation in a delightful rural area


Connel is situated some five miles to the east of the principal west highland town of Oban and offers a range of village amenities and services which include a well stocked general store/post office, churches, a modern medical centre, primary school, tea room and two licensed hotels with restaurants. Connel Station is a stop on the main Glasgow to Oban rail line and the village also has a regular bus service to Oban and to the South. A general hospital, high school and leisure centre together with a more comprehensive range of shops are to be found in Oban.

Situated a short drive from the village on the single track road that loops back round to Oban and accessed off a shared track with other properties, Woodcroft is a substantial house of modern timber framed construction under a slate roof and provides most spacious family sized accommodation. Of particular note is the extensive attic area which could easily be developed for additional living space, subject to the necessary consents. Sitting in an elevated position with far reaching countryside views and surrounded by quarter of an acre of uncultivated garden ground beyond which lies 11 acres of croft ground Woodcroft provides an excellent opportunity to be developed as a small agricultural holding in this picturesque rural area and yet is still convenient for all the amenities the town of Oban has to offer.
