Tenure: Freehold

The picturesque rural community of Kilninver is an area renowned for its magnificent scenery, excellent sailing and fishing and is steeped in history and rich in wildlife, flora and fauna. Oban, the principal tourist town of Argyll is some 10 miles to the north and supports a wide range of shops, restaurants, leisure and recreational facilities and professional services. The thriving town has an attractive sea front and bustling harbour from which Caledonian MacBrayne ferries serve many of the Hebridean Islands. The town enjoys good transport links to the central belt of Scotland by road and rail and the airport at North Connel serves private and light charter aircraft.

Situated in a unique elevated position which commands exceptional unobstructed views over Loch Seil and the surrounding countryside Duachy Farmhouse & Loch Seil Cottages is an excellent business/lifestyle opportunity, offering the rare combination of a magnificent 4 bedroomed family home with 3 luxury self-catering cottages arranged around a welcoming courtyard setting. The current owners have carried out an extensive programme of upgrading and modernisation to the properties and have successfully created a highly profitable luxury self-catering business.

The beautifully presented farmhouse, with views over Loch Seil from almost every room, has also been upgraded into a fine family home. Features include the fitted kitchen with granite worktops and Aga and the modern bathroom/shower room suites. A full height glazed panel in the hall set in open stonework is of particular note as you descend the impressive staircase. With the self-catering business in mind there is a large utility room with excellent storage and the office can easily be accessed directly from the courtyard.

The current owners operate the business to suit their own lifestyle taking bookings for only 9 months of the year so there is ample scope for any purchaser to increase the turnover. Also, the detached garage and barn offer excellent development potential for a purchaser to add to the portfolio of cottages, subject to the necessary consents.
