West Hollybush presents an exceptional opportunity to build in a stunning coastal location on the edge of the famous Loch Fyne. Positioned only meters from the shore and with views across to Inveraray Castle, the plots are being offered with Planning Permission in Principle for two properties. The site is conveniently situated adjacent to the main road from where a vehicular access meets the old road leading to each plot. We are advised mains water and other services are close by and drainage will be to septic tanks for each property. A fixed and limited financial contribution towards some of the costs of installing the access road would be offered by the seller on confirmation of sale (such sum to be agreed) if each plot is sold separately to unrelated parties. The site, which falls within the pretty village of St Catherine’s, can be best accessed under foot with parking available in a layby a short distance away. Running parallel with the site on the landward side is a delightful SSI protected broadleaf woodland with wild orchids and bluebells. Close to the plots is St Catherine’s jetty overlooking which is the site of a late medieval chapel. Also within the village are the remains of a hermit’s kil or cell close to the disused quarry, stone from which was used to build Inveraray Castle.

Although conveniently close to the road network, the plots enjoy a secluded position and benefit from their own individual access to Loch Fyne from its rocky foreshore. Loch Fyne or Loch of the Vine is the longest of the sea lochs and a top tourist destination popular for fishing, boating and diving and a natural haven for wildlife including otters, seals, dolphins and basking sharks. The area is also known for walking, climbing, cycling and horse riding. About 6 miles away at the head of Loch Fyne are the famous Ardkinglas woodland gardens and the renowned Loch Fyne oyster bar, seafood restaurant and tree shop. Views of the historic town of Inveraray, the first planned town in Scotland with relocated castle and township built around 1746, can be enjoyed from the site. The town has a number of popular attractions including the jail museum and castle and 9-hole golf course. West Hollybush is also within easy reach of Dunoon, the more southerly principal town on the Cowl Peninsula. The site is also ideally situated for access to Glasgow about one hour away with its busy international airport and direct rail links to Edinburgh and London. At Strachur, only a few miles away, are a petrol station and store, medical practice, post office and primary school.

The option may exist to purchase the plots individually.
