Dating back to 1881 and commanding a superb position overlooking River Orchy, Orchy Bank presents an excellent opportunity to own a delightful, semi detached Victorian house in a popular and very scenic area of Argyll. The property boasts an interesting and varied history having previously operated as a village shop, general store and bakery before being transformed into a very successful guest house more than 30 yeas ago by the current owners.. Orchy Bank is situated in a tranquil location on the Old Military Road away from the A85, yet conveniently close to the main road network and local train station. The property is surrounded by a varied and picturesque landscape encompassing mountains, lochs and rivers. This together with its close proximity to a choice of Munros, as well as lying on the ‘Coast to Coast’ walk from Oban to St. Andrews, ensures its popularity with visitors throughout the year. The property, which is in need of refurbishment and modernisation, offers scope for use in a variety of ways, including as accommodation, spacious holiday let or delightful family home.

Orchy Bank benefits from a good size, mature garden extending to about 0.5 acres with a large lawn to the front running parallel to the river - said to be one of the most picturesque salmon rivers in Scotland. Beyond the garden at the far end is the historic Dalmally Bridge dating from about 1781 which was originally built to help cattle and soldiers cross. The garden of Orchy Bank extends to the rear of the property with its pretty duck pond. There is also a small path giving direct access to the river for a kayak or small boat. Also to the rear and adjoining the property is a double garage and workshop. Close to Orchy Bank are a number of attractions of historical significance including Glenorchy Parish Church built in 1810 on a site where a church is known to have stood since the 14th Century, the ruins of Kilchurn Castle situated on a peninsula on Loch Awe and the famous St. Conan’s Kirk also at Loch Awe.
