TRADITIONAL STONE BUILT COTTAGE
The subjects of sale form a charming, traditional stone built cottage, situated on the outskirts of Tyndrum at Glen Lochy. Enjoying deceptively spacious accommodation in a convenient layout over two floors, An Tigh Beag is in very good order and benefits from double glazing and gas fired central heating. Due to the size and location, the property would be suited to a number of uses including a fantastic permanent home, idyllic holiday home or as an exciting investment for the very buoyant self-catering holiday market, as is currently used. Originally built as a railway house in the early 20th Century, the property has been upgraded in recent years, whilst retaining many original features and boasts generous, well maintained and established garden grounds, with stunning views towards Meall Odhar.
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 4 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.
