The Plot - We are delighted to offer the opportunity to acquire this good sized building plot in the popular village of Barcaldine. The plot is located on a private drive towards the end of a very pretty lane off the A828. The site, which is approximately 0.3 acre is being offered with outline planning permission for a 1.5 storey house (ref 89/01151/RM_001). As well as the main area of land, there is a further strip across a narrow track which also forms part of the site and which could be developed, for example, as parking or for storage. To the rear of the plot - in a slightly elevated position - is another small area of ground which also offers potential for development. The plot lies adjacent to the rear of the famous Barcaldine House. The house dates back to 1709 and was owned by members of the Campbell clan until 1842 when it was sold. Today it is run as a luxury hotel.
Although the plot is only a few minutes drive from the main road, it lies in a delightful and secluded little hamlet with mature trees, shrubs and woodland close by. As well as being easily accessible, the site is in close proximity to all the major services including electricity, water and sewerage. Phone lines can also be accessed from nearby. If required, a design and build package for the plot is also available to be negotiated with the owner - a renowned, local builder.

Location - Barcaldine is a popular village which lies on the shores of Loch Creran and close to Loch Etive. The village has a primary school there is also a marina which offers deep water moorings, winter storage for yachts, short stay pontoon and other facilities. Oban airport is approximately 6 miles away and provides services to the islands.
Oban which is approximately 12 miles away offers a wide range of amenities, including shops, restaurants, schools and leisure facilities. The ferry services operated by Caledonian MacBrayne to the Inner and Outer Hebrides help make Oban a top tourist destination.

Directions - The plot is located off the A828 which is accessed via the A85 over Connel bridge. Having crossed over the bridge continue along the A828 following signs for Benderloch and Barcaldine. At the sign for Barcaldine House Hotel, turn right through metal gates and continue along this road. At the top when the road splits, take the left fork and continue over a small wooden bridge. Follow the road around passing the hotel entrance on your left. The plot can be found up on the left and is indicated by our board.
