The property
Corrie House is a magnificent, refurbished house which occupies a breath-taking position overlooking the popular Craobh Haven Marina. The house was built in the 1980s and has been comprehensively refurbished in the last few years by the current owners. It was run successfully as a 5 star B&B and the quality of the accommodation is exceptional throughout. In 2013 a Cookery School was built in the grounds, which augments the lifestyle business opportunity provided by the property. The cookery school is no longer in operation but has planning consent to
be converted into a residential dwelling, adding
flexibility to the overall package at Corrie House.

Corrie House is approached through an arched, external porch which leads into the hall. This has a WC with a shower off it, together with a guest bedroom (Jura), which has lovely views over the garden and a wet room. The sitting room/dining room is open plan and has the most wonderful views over the islands. The sitting room has a wood burning stove and the dining room has double doors which lead into a study and further double doors which lead to the decked area. The kitchen is exceptional. It has an excellent range of wall and floor units which incorporate a stainless steel sink, a Hotpoint microwave, coffee machine, a large gas range cooker, with 2 ovens and a 6 ring hob, 2 dish washers drawers, a large island unit with breakfast bar, sink and plenty of drawer space. There is space for 2 double fridge freezers. Off the kitchen is a back hall/utility room and a laundry room adjacent. From the kitchen, a spiral staircase leads to the master bedroom. This has wonderful views, a dressing area, a door to a balcony and a large en suite bathroom, with an oval bath and a large shower cubicle. The first floor guest accommodation is accessed by a spiral staircase from the main hall. Off the landing is a large laundry room and there are two bedrooms; Shuna and Mull. Shuna has a port-hole window and an en suite shower room. Mull has magnificent views and also has an en suite shower room.

Former Cookery School
Within the grounds of Corrie House detached building which has in the past been used as a cookery school. This consists of a timber frame structure which is timber clad in French Limousin. While the accommodation has been used as a cookery school, planning consent (Ref 17/00016/pp) has been granted for alterations, extension and change of use to form a dwelling house, thus giving flexibility of use. The exposed oak beams are a feature and the views from the huge glass windows are spectacular. A former prep kitchen leads into a shower room and a separate WC.

Outbuildings
Adjoining the former cookery school is a garage block. The single garage is currently used as a workshop and has a useful large store off it.

Outside
Corrie House is approached by an in and out tarmac drive. There is a large central parking area for the guest, surrounded by apple trees and an adjacent lawn with magnificent shrub borders. Behind the house the garden has been landscaped into the hill, using the natural rocky outcrops as features and planted with an array of shrubs. There is a kitchen garden to the side of the house, with raised beds, a greenhouse and cold frames, and adjacent to the house is a decked area, from which the magnificent views can be enjoyed.

Corrie House occupies a spectacular position over-looking the popular marina of Craobh Haven, a popular destination for west coast sailors. The views from the property are exceptional and include vistas over the islands of Shuna, Luing, Scarba, Mull and Jura. Craobh Haven is situated just off the A816 trunk road, which connects Lochgilphead to the south (17 miles) with Oban to the north (22 miles). There are local amenities associated with the marina, including the Lord of the Isles bar/restaurant and a small village store attached. Kilmelford has a village shop, post office, and a hotel and Ardfern also has a village shop and marina.

Oban is the main ferry port for Argyll and the south western Highlands and Islands of Scotland and it lies 22 miles to the north of Corrie House. As an important centre of commerce, the town provides a wide variety of retailers, wholesalers, professional services, a hospital, secondary school with sports and leisure facilities, and a ferry terminal with daily services to a range of islands including Mull and the Outer Hebrides. In addition, there is a small private airport at Connell, 4 miles north of Oban.

To the south, the villages of Crinan (15 miles) and Lochgilphead (17 miles) provide further services and are popular with tourists including sailors navigating the Crinan canal which connects Loch Fyne (on the east side of the Kintyre peninsula) with the Sound of Jura and the Atlantic Ocean (on the west side). Lochgilphead is the administrative capital of Argyll and location of the main council offices.

Oban has a small airport, with services to Coll, Colonsay, Tiree and Islay. The closest airport is Glasgow (98 miles) which has a good range of both domestic and international flight. Oban has a railway station with regular services and a sleeper service can be taken from Tyndrum to London.

In historical terms, the county of Argyll formed the major part of the kingdom of Dalriada, which is believed to have been settled by gaels from Ireland with its capital at the fort of Dunadd near Lochgilphead. The county is strewn with remnant forts, castles and standing stones from this period.

With its many islands, peninsulas and sea lochs, Argyll has thousands of miles of coastline and, as such, the sea is a feature of the working life and leisure time of its inhabitants. The quality of sailing off the Argyll coast and Inner Hebrides is of world renown. With nearby marinas at and Craobh Haven and Kilmelford, the property is perfectly placed for sailing enthusiasts to explore much of the west coast.

In terms of land based activities, there are several golf courses within an hour’s drive of the property including the Isle of Seil course at Balvicar, the Glencruitten course near Oban and courses at Lochgilphead, Tarbert and Taynuilt. With a large extent of Forestry Commission woodland in the district, there is an almost endless choice of routes for cyclists and mountain bikers. With many islands to explore, mountains to climb, lochs to fish, pubs and restaurants to dine at throughout Argyll, there is a fantastically diverse range of activities within a drive of an hour or so of Corrie House.
