Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Isle of Islay lies off the south west coast of Scotland, just north of the Northern Irish coast and is a paradise for bird watchers and archaeologists. Also known as the ‘Queen of the Hebrides’ this magical island is steeped in ancient history and offers impressive scenery, striking sea views and unspoiled golden beaches warmed by the Gulf Stream. There is a traditional links golf course at Machrie.

The island is world-famous for its malt whiskies – with eight individual distilleries producing their own distinctive flavours.

One of the larger Scottish islands, Islay is self-sufficient with its own hospital, schools and a thriving local economy offering diverse shopping, restaurants and social activities. The island is served by a regular car ferry service from Kennacraig (near Tarbert, Loch Fyne). The island’s increasing popularity means there are now two ferries in operation at any one time, providing four sailings per day. The ferry journey from Kennacraig to Port Ellen takes approximately 2 hours 20 minutes. The island has its own airport with twice-daily flights from Glasgow. There is also a frequent ferry service to Jura and, in the summer months, a weekly sailing to Oban and Colonsay.

On arriving by ferry in Port Ellen, turn left onto the A846 and left again before the Maltings. Go down that road and follow it for half a mile, going through a T junction. The plots are approximately 50 metres past the junction and are signposted on the right hand side of the road.

The plots are situated in a superb location, facing south east on a slightly elevated but level site, approximately five minutes’ drive from Port Ellen. There are sweeping panoramic sea views to the front which give a vista of the ferries coming and going, as well as other yachts and boats. To the rear and side are excellent open countryside views. With a unique, private and peaceful location, as well as easy access to the town amenities, the plots are a tempting proposition for someone wishing to build a permanent family home, a holiday home, or a house with holiday letting potential.

Outline Planning Permission was granted on the 14 December 2009 (Ref: 09/00480/OUT) for the erection of a single dwelling on each site.

The architect-designed dwellings will be in-keeping with the surroundings and are designed to blend in with the countryside, with materials traditional to the area being used, eg. smooth rendered finishes and natural slate roofs. Each house will combine a contemporary style with the traditional West Highland vernacular.

Copies of the architects’ drawings will be available to seriously interested parties.

Services will be installed on site and will form the following:
Mains electricity
Mains water
Private drainage to septic tank
