Property Description

CHARMING SEMI-DETACHED COTTAGES

An exciting opportunity has arisen to purchase two charming cottages, located in the heart of the Argyllshire countryside, on the outskirts of Tyndrum, at Glen Lochy. Set in large garden grounds, extending to around 1.65 acres, with views to the surrounding mountains, 1 & 2 Arinabea Cottages are semi-detached and offer the successful purchaser, deceptively spacious, flexible homes. Independent of each other (with the exception of the heating system, water supply and septic tank), Cottage 1 is currently used as a successful self-catering property, whilst Cottage 2 is a family home for our clients. Benefiting from double glazing and an ETA, wood pellet, Biomass heating system, the properties are in very good order, with accommodation conveniently laid out over one level. The surrounding grounds present lawned garden areas to the front, whilst a fantastic space to the side would be ideal for the construction of a garage, workshops, sheds, green houses etc, subject to any necessary permissions. Please note, the properties are being sold as one lot and are not available separately.

Glen Lochy is a very small hamlet on the A85 road between Tyndrum and Dalmally, surrounded by magnificent scenery in the heart of this hill-walking countryside. The area is home to several Munro and Corbett mountains, whilst cycling, fishing, golf and skiing are all available nearby, with an abundance of wildlife present, including golden eagles, deer and woodpeckers. The nearby village of Tyndrum is 2 miles away and links routes between Glasgow, Oban, Glencoe and Fort William, and is also a popular tourist destination which lies on the West Highland Way, the 100 mile walk from Glasgow to Fort William. The village offers a variety of services which include mini market shops, the popular Green Welly Stop with petrol station, a hotel, pub, The Real Food Café, Artisan Café, TJ’s Diner as well as village hall, campsite and hostel. There are also two railway stations present, Upper Tyndrum which provides the rail link to Fort William and Mallaig with Lower Tyndrum providing the link between Oban and Glasgow.
