With enviable views over Loch Awe to Ben Cruachan, the apartment would make the ideal holiday home or permanent residence in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Benefiting from electric heating and newly fitted double glazing, all internal furniture, fixtures and floor coverings will be included in the sale.

Avich Apartment is located some 3 miles beyond the village of Port Sonachan with the village of Dalmally a further 9 miles away providing a grocer shop, post office and doctors surgery. A full range of amenities and services can be found in Oban some 30 miles distant.

The town boasts a wide variety of shops, sporting and transport facilities while many of the restaurants, cafes and bars often provide live bands and ceilidhs.
