Property Description


Quietly situated in the desirable residential village of Barcaldine and enjoying views to the surrounding countryside and nearby Loch Creran, the sale of Appin View forms a charming detached cottage in private grounds. The property would benefit from some modernisation and upgrading, however offers double glazing, oil fired central heating and an open fire. The spacious, welcoming dining hallway and bright conservatory are most attractive features, whilst due to the size and location, the property would be ideally suited to a first time buyer, family home, holiday retreat or as an excellent business opportunity as a buy-to-let in a very buoyant rental market.

The much sought-after village of Barcaldine has a primary school, marine laboratory and Barcaldine Castle whilst the neighbouring village of Benderloch offers further amenities, including a church, supermarket, garage and petrol station selling a range of outdoor equipment. It is also close to a bus route, national cycle routes and forest walks. The principal town of Oban offers a comprehensive range of services both commercially and culturally. Known as “The Seafood Capital of Scotland”, the town is also the Gateway to the Isles, with ferry, train and air services linking the islands to the mainland and central belt.
