Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Plots 1-4 at Ballygowan, Glen Lonan offer an exceptional opportunity to enjoy an unspoilt and tranquil area of outstanding scenic and natural beauty. The surrounding area is steeped in Neolithic and Iron Age heritage. Glen Lonan is known as the Valley of the Kings through which the funeral corteges of the ancient Kings of Scotland passed en route to burial on Iona. The plots are carefully situated to enjoy the open expanses of farmland and woodland as well as stunning views of Loch Nell, Ben Cruachan, Glen Coe and Mull. Each site makes clever use of the existing topography in the form of natural banks, hollows, knolls and mature trees to offer seclusion and privacy so ensuring the developments will sit quietly and sensitively within the landscape but still benefit from exceptional views.

The serviced plots are being offered with planning permission in principle (PPP) for a single storey detached dwelling with the seller’s preference for homes of high aesthetic quality and inspiring architecture. The use of natural materials will be key to ensuring the houses blend well with the predominantly agricultural vernacular of the area. Further enhancement will come through the recent planting by the seller of a 100 hectare broadleaf woodland on the Ballygowan hilltop. As well as providing additional shelter, the woodland will offer a natural habitat for the varied wildlife which the area is known for including hen harriers, golden eagles, white tailed eagles and black grouse, as well as pine martens, red squirrels, otters and wild cats.

Glen Lonan enjoys a quiet and secluded location yet is conveniently close to the popular coastal town of Oban with it extensive range of shops and professional services as well as secondary schooling and a railway station with regular services to Glasgow. The town is also the ferry terminal to the Western Isles and a base for sailing. Close by at Connel is a small airfield with services for private aircraft. Glasgow airport also has regular connections to London and a variety of domestic and international destinations.

Each plot is being offered for sale with Planning Permission in Principle (PPP) for a detached house. Further information is available through Galbraith and via the following Argyll and Bute Council links:
