Property Description

Adjacent to the village of Kilmelford, Glenmore sits amongst flat pastures and woodland set against a spectacular and rugged mountainous back drop. Views over Loch Melfort complete this package. Loch Melfort is a very popular high quality marine and tourist destination.

Formerly a large agricultural steading with an elegant C-listed façade, the building is set around a spacious inner courtyard and has Full Planning Permission in place for twelve individual dwellings. Positioned on a stunning site amounting to 2.2 acres, the successful purchaser has an exciting opportunity to create a prestigious rural development of contemporary, modern units, with the benefit of an aesthetically pleasing traditional exterior.

Due to the size and location, Glenmore Steading would be ideally suited to a number of uses from permanent dwellings, holiday homes or luxury self-catering accommodation within a proven tourist area. Once converted, the individual dwellings will range in internal area from approximately 90m² to 186m². The location could even be suited to a tourism based distillery business or a substantial private dwelling (subject to planning).


The picturesque village of Kilmelford lies approximately 14 miles to the south of Oban. Popular with tourists, yachtsmen and home to a thriving local community, the village facilities include Kilmelford Yacht Haven, a sheltered anchorage, a village shop and café, and a hotel with bar and restaurant. The area offers excellent walking and stunning views, as well as wild brown trout fishing on the many hill lochs, and sea fishing around the coast. The large yacht haven and marina at Craobh is just a few miles to the south. Situated some 7 miles to the north at Kilninver is a well-respected primary school, with secondary schooling being undertaken at Oban High School. A full range of facilities and amenities can be found in Oban, which also has excellent travel links to the rest of the UK and central belt.


Full Planning Permission (Planning Ref. No. 15/00658/PP) was granted on 20 April 2015 for partial demolition, alteration and extension of the existing Steading to form 12 dwellinghouses and an associated storage building. The Planning Permission can be viewed at the offices of the selling agent.


Strictly by appointment through the selling agent.
