Situation
Schiehallion presents an excellent opportunity to acquire a property on the Island of Tiree, the most westerly of the Inner Hebrides. The property is situated in a pleasant location at Crossapol, a small settlement approximately 3.5 miles from the village of Scarinish, set in the middle of the island with easy access to the airport, the ferry terminal, beautiful beaches and local facilities and amenities.

The Isle of Tiree
The island of Tiree is the most westerly of the Inner Hebrides and is approximately 13 miles long and three and a half miles wide. It is famous for its many stretches of long, white sandy beaches and the flat grassy land (the machair) behind the sand dunes which, in the spring and summer months, form a carpet of wild flowers. The traditional low-intensity farming methods on the island and the enriching effects of wind-blown sand also sustain a wide variety of insects and birds, including the rare corncrake.

As well as the primary school, the island supports a six-year secondary school, shops, garages, bank, post office, doctor, vet and other everyday requirements. The Co-Operative store at the village of Scarinish also has a wide selection of groceries, fruit and vegetables and wines. There are builders and other tradesmen on the island, a business centre and a local newspaper.

In recent years Tiree has also become well known for its excellent windsurfing and has an annual ‘Wave Classic’ event when people from far and wide visit to join in the activities and, as well as enjoying the windsurfing, to see local artwork by visiting the craft shops and galleries.

The island is served by a daily (except Sunday) flight from Glasgow and a regular car ferry service from Oban. The ferry journey from Oban to Tiree takes approximately 3 hours and 45 minutes.

Directions
Travel up the pier road from the ferry terminal and turn left at the T junction onto the B8068. Continue for approximately 2.5 miles until Hynish Bay appears on the left hand side of the road. Take the first right, signposted to Crossapol. The property is on the right hand side of the road just after the airport.

Description
The property is a substantial, detached blackhouse-style dwelling set under a pitched, felt roof. Built in 2005 by Touchwood Building Services, and with the benefit of an NHBC certificate, the property offers a modern interior with light, neutral décor and plenty of natural wood finishes, combined with the traditional external look of a blackhouse.

The property is currently used as a permanent family home, but it would be equally suitable as a second home, a weekend bolthole or a spacious, self-catering holiday let.

Inside, the accommodation has been designed to make the most of the panoramic views, with the main living areas on the first floor and the majority of bedrooms on the ground floor.

The property is entered via a hall which has access to all the ground floor accommodation apart from the utility room. The hall has a carpeted wooden dog leg staircase to the first floor and an under-stair storage cupboard.

The dining room is well presented with wooden laminate flooring, neutral décor and downlights. Double patio doors lead to the rear out onto the decking, there is open access to the kitchen and space for a dining table to sit at least six.

The well-proportioned kitchen has dual aspect views to the north and west, and a door to the utility room. There are a range of solid oak fitted floor and wall units, as well as a single glass-fronted shelved display cabinet and open shelving. The decorative theme is completed by black, marble-effect roll top worksurfaces, neutral walls and flooring, and downlights. There is an integrated dishwasher, a stainless steel oven and grill, and space for an upright fridge freezer.

Accessed from the kitchen and with a door to the garden, the utility room is well-equipped with a washing machine and tumble dryer. There are oak floor and wall units, coat hooks, a telephone point and the central heating boiler.

Each of the downstairs bedrooms are fitted with television points and telephone points. Bedroom 1 has open views towards the airport to the rear, whilst Bedroom 2 offers glimpses of the sea. Each of the rooms are in immaculate, neutral decorative order, with plenty of wood finishes.

The family bathroom has a 3-piece Victorian-style suite which includes a panelled bath with a mains pressure mixer shower over and an etched glass screen. There is a wall mounted vanity cabinet with a mirrored door. A frosted window faces to the west and provides warm, natural light. The bathroom is clean, modern and uncluttered.

Upstairs, a landing with a large Velux window on the west elevation gives access to all the first floor accommodation.

The lounge is a modern and bright room with a steeply coombed ceiling and Velux windows on the east and west elevations. There is a telephone point, a television point, and ample seating space. The room is decorated in neutrals with a wooden laminate floor and downlights.

The sizeable Master Bedroom has a coombed ceiling and Velux windows facing north and south. Decorated in light, pastel colours, there is a fitted carpet, a telephone point and downlights. A door leads to the en suite bathroom which has a white 2-piece suite and a shower cabinet with a mains pressure mixer shower, a hinged glass screen and Respatex wall covering.

The fifth bedroom/study is equipped with fixed shelving and working space. There is a television point, a telephone point and a west-facing Velux window.

Completing the accommodation is a W.C. with a folding door which has a 2-piece bathroom suite and a built-in store cupboard which has slatted shelves and houses the hot water tank.
Outside, the property sits on a level site which has panoramic open views in all directions. The property is accessed via a farm gate which leads to a gravel parking area. The garden is stock fenced and mainly laid to grass with some beds containing young plants and bushes. A sizeable area of decking to the rear of the property provides a sunny seating area.
