The Island of Luing, pronounced “Ling”, 16 miles from Oban with its railway, shops and schools, is a 5 minute car ferry from Seil.

It is 7 miles long and some 2 miles wide, with a population of 175. Sheep and Luing cattle are farmed here. There are 2 villages.

The property is in a beautiful location on the west coast of Luing, in the conservation village of Cullipool, which has about 45 cottages and lies at the end of the road.

Built some 150 years ago, the cottage is on the outside of the village, at the end of a terraced row. Beyond are meadows and hills, with the former church building up the hill a way. It lies 2 minutes from the beach and the shore.

The cottage has recently been stripped out.

It will be a 1 bedroomed cottage with living room and bathrooom, and 2 attic bedrooms.

Deep window sills throughout the ground floor.

Garden with low slate wall, overlooking a small channelled stream with meadows beyond. Sea audible sometimes.

Main Description.
Standing at the east end of a terraced row of 5 cottages, number 43 has side access, between the house and slate-built coal shed (2 x 1.5m, and not much roof), to the garden at the back.

There is a small porch at the south-facing entrance to the cottage.

Outside the front is a wide, grassed track which is very little used, but which can take vehicles up to a small lorry, or deck chairs.

Parking is fine outside the property, or on the tarmac 25m. away.

Interior; Ground Floor.
Approx. 7m. long and 4.70m. wide.
The porch means that it would be possible to enter the cottage directly, without losing space for an entrance hall.

Windows each side of the front door; one to the rear as well on the left and double sliding doors on the right, leading out into the garden. The bathroom was straight in front, between what was the dining kitchen and the living room.

There is an open chimney at each end, one an original hearth with a traditional slate slab over (“kitchen” end), and the other a beige tiled fireplace.

The floor is bare loose slate, the walls are stripped back to stone, and the doors and windows will need replacing. It is ready to go. There is no problem with building permissions so long as the rooms are rebuilt roughly as they were.

First Floor.
Building regs mean that this can only be classed as storage, but it is fine to fit them out as bedrooms. Access is by stair ladder. The floor space is the same as below, and the height is nearly 2 meters.

There are 2 metal skylights, both south-facing, overlooking the village to the islands.

The sarking to the roof is sound, but might as well be replaced when the roof is restored. Most of the roof slates are in good shape, but some will need replacing.

The Island.
There is a lively community life, with a choice of ceidlhis, concerts, cinema club, exhibitions, cafe, sewing club, zumba and keep fit, skiffing round the islands and more.

Medical care is excellent, withtwice-weekly visits by the G.P., and First Responders live on the island. There is a Fire Station , fire engine and ambulance, with helicopter service from Oban for emergencies.

The shop and post office sells “everything”, including local meat and cheeses, fresh produce, wines, household goods, etc.

Wildlife here includes hares, otters, deer, seals and occasional dolphins ; buzzards, different gulls, ducks, sea eagles and gannets (in stormy weather). Wrens live in the garden wall, and there is a wide variety of other garden birds.

The fishermen here can provide prawns, scallops and lobsters if you ask nicely.

-Council tax; Band A
