Property Description


Extending to approximately 0.25 acres and with Planning Perrmission in Principle for a detached dwellinghouse, the plot at Fountainhead, Bunessan enjoys an elevated location with exceptional views over Bunessan Bay towards the Ardtun Peninsula and the cliffs of Burgh. The site presents an excellent opportunity to develop a permanent family home, holiday home or a self-catering holiday let business (subject to the necessary planning consents) and is located within easy distance of the local facilities.

Bunessan is a popular coastal village centered around a sheltered natural harbour, and is the largest village on the Ross of Mull. Bunessan offers all the usual village amenities including a Post Office, doctor’s surgery, several shops and a popular hotel serving bar meals. Lying some 5 miles west of Bunessan is the village of Fionnphort from where regular 10-minute ferry crossings depart to the neighbouring Island of Iona, famed the world over for its Abbey. Also available from Fionnphort are sightseeing and wildlife trips to Fingal’s Cave on Staffa and the Treshnish Isles. Tobermory, the capital of the Isle of Mull, is located 42 miles away at the northern end of the island.

The Isle of Mull is served by regular ferry crossings from Oban and is the second largest and one of the most accessible of the Inner Hebrides. With wild mountainous upland and 300 miles of spectacular coastline, Mull offers awe-inspiring scenery and an abundance of wildlife including golden eagles, otters, seals, dolphins and whales. As such, Mull has a relatively long tourist season and receives large numbers of visitors well into October. Salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishing are readily available on the island. The surrounding coastal waters are a sailor’s paradise that allow ready access to the many and varied islands off the west coast of Mull including Iona, Staffa, the Treshnish Islands and Coll and Tiree.


Mains water, power and drainage are available for connection close by. It will be the responsibility of the purchaser to connect the services.
