Property Description


Peacefully situated, on the unique island of Easdale in the Firth of Lorn, Number 28 forms a charming, traditional stone-built, detached cottage, with views over the quarry to the surrounding sea and landscape. Recently renovated, the cottage offers conveniently arranged accommodation, comprising a bright, dual-aspect lounge/diner, kitchen/diner with newly installed units, two bedrooms and a modern bathroom suite, with separate shower cubicle, all over one level. Benefiting from single glazing and electric heating, the property also enjoys garden grounds to the front and rear. Due to the size and location, the property would be ideally suited as a fantastic permanent home, idyllic holiday retreat, or as an investment opportunity for the extremely buoyant, self catering market.

Reached by a short crossing via, open-roofed, passenger ferry from Ellenabeich, Easdale is the smallest, permanently-inhabited, island of the Inner Hebrides, off Scotland’s west coast. An island of undisturbed natural beauty with no cars, roads or street lights, this popular island was originally the heart of Scotland’s world renowned slate mining industry, with quarry and purpose-built cottages for the workers, many of which have since been restored and now provide a tranquil lifestyle and lovely holiday retreat. Facilities on the island include The Puffer Bar and Restaurant, an award winning museum, and the superb Easdale Island Community Hall, which hosts varied activities throughout the year. In addition, the famous ‘World Stone Skimming Championships’ are held on the island every September.
