Impressive modern country house combining traditional appearance with modern comforts in a beautiful riverside setting

Location

Roineabhal is situated on the fringe of the delightful west highland hamlet of Kilchrenan.

Kilchrenan is a quiet lochside village reached by a 7 mile long minor road and is a secluded area of great tranquility and beauty. There is a variety of freshwater fish in the loch and in 1996 a British record 25lb wild brown trout was caught. The loch also offers the opportunity for boating and water sports.
Loch Awe is a spectacular loch and at 27 miles long is the longest freshwater loch in Scotland. It runs from the village of Lochawe to Ford near the west coast to the south. Kilchurn Castle is a dramatic ruin which is one of Scotland's most famous and most photographed castles. There are a number of islands in the loch including Innishail, which is the burial island of the Dukes of Argyll. Inveraray Castle, the seat of the Dukes of Argyll, is at the head of Loch Fyne.

Argyll offers a full range of outdoor activities. There is spectacular hill walking, climbing and mountaineering in the area with skiing at both Aonach Mhor (near Fort William) and at Glen Coe. There is also deer stalking and the numerous lochs and rivers provide both salmon fishing and trout fishing. The west coast is also famous for its exciting sailing and varied coastline.
Kilchrenan has an inn, a primary school and a church. There are two notable hotels in the village on the loch side – the Taychreggan and the Ardanaiseig – both of which cater for the upper end of the market and have good restaurants. Taynuilt, on the main road to Oban, has a post office, grocer/delicatessen, butcher and petrol station. Oban (19 miles) is the nearest major town and is the ferry terminal to the Western Isles. The town has a full range of shops, supermarkets and restaurants.

Despite its seclusion, Roineabhal is not inaccessible. There is a railway line from Glasgow to Oban with local stations at Taynuilt and Dalmally. The A82 along Loch Lomond has been much improved in recent years, meaning the journey time to Glasgow Airport has been significantly reduced.

Description

Roineabhal is a country house of traditional appearance with contemporary comforts. Constructed of timber frame with granite stone cladding under a slate roof you could be forgiven for thinking it has stood for 100 years. Flagstone floors, spacious reception rooms and beautiful open fires provide all the comforts one would expect from a rural period property rather than a modern build. These traditional features then combine with underfloor heating, a beautifully appointed kitchen and bathrooms, as well as plentiful storage space.

The accommodation spans two floors and has a superb balance of bedroom to bathrooms. Currently the owners run a successful bed and breakfast business from the property, but equally a move back to a family home would be simple and carry great appeal.

Gardens and grounds

Roineabhal is south facing and sits in a sheltered woodland setting with the Kilchrenan Burn running alongside. The property opens out onto manicured lawns, enchanting views of the river and a lush coppice of hardwood trees. The garden has been landscaped with the natural beauty in mind, is easily enjoyed and requires little maintenance.

Square Footage: 3,103 sq ft

Directions

From Glasgow proceed westbound on the M8 motorway for 14 miles taking exit 30 for the Erskine Bridge. Continue over the bridge turning left onto the A82 and continue on the A82 for 41 miles straight through the two roundabouts on the Crianlarich bypass and left again at Tyndrum onto the A85. Follow the A85 to Taynuilt and just before Taynuilt, take the B845 left to Kilchrenan. Follow the single track road to Kilchrenan for about 6 miles and the entrance to Roineabhal is on the left hand side just immediately after the sign for Kilchrenan on the left hand side.
