If you are looking for total peace and tranquility then Aultbea is the property for you. A delightful traditional property situated in the small crofting  hamlet of Arivegaig on the picturesque Ardnamurchan Penninsula. Set within approximately 5 acres of private and mature grounds, with stunning views over Kentra Moss towards the Isles of Rum and Eigg and the surrounding mountains. The property is in good order throughout with the benefit of oil fired central heating, sash windows most of which are double-glazed. 

This is a unique and rare opportunity for someone seeking a change of lifestyle. Originally a plant nursery, there is still a 70 foot long polytunnel with water, and sufficient space to develop a wide range of sustainable projects. There is scope to extend the house as well as to develop an adjacent builidng plot.

Arivegaig is situated very close to the beautiful Kentra Bay, approximately 2 miles from the main village of Acharacle where there are shops, a medical centre, a church, a hotel and a state of the art primary school. There is a secondary school at Strontian (17 miles away) with more facilities and amenities available at Fort William. 

Arivegaig provides the perfect base for exploring this wild and rugged area. There are many exquisite beaches nearby as well as it being easily accessible to the Isles Mull and Skye. This secluded property offers total peace and tranquility and is a haven for wild-life with pine marten, otter, red deer, sea eagles and owls to name but a few of the birds and animals  seen on or near the property.

With its white sandy beaches and network of sea lochs and coves, this area is a mecca for  sea-kayaking and sailing.
