Glenshellach and Ariogan are located on the southern outskirts of Oban, with the northern end of
the land holding reaching the edge of the town. The land is easily accessible from the public road
network and coastal views can be enjoyed from parts of the farm.

Oban is a busy coastal town and tourist destination, well known for its excellent seafood restaurants
and ferry links to the Western Isles. The town is well served with amenities with good schools,
hospital, supermarkets, and the railway station provides direct train services to Glasgow. Oban
is the perfect location to enjoy a range of leisure activities, including sailing, hill walking, golf and
exploring the many beaches and coastline in the area.

Oban also hosts a number of agricultural suppliers, and the United Auctions livestock Mart is
located directly adjacent to Ariogan Farm, with Dalmally Mart also a short distance away.

Lot 1 – Ariogan Farm - 179 Ha (442 acres)
Ariogan comprises 173.26 Ha (428 acres) of owner occupied farmland along with a small tenanted
croft which extends to 5.74 Ha (14.15 acres).
The in hand farmland comprises a mix of pasture and rough grazings with some areas of naturalised
native woodland. For the most part the land is gently undulating, ranging between 70m and 160m
above sea level, with some steeper slopes at the north end at Soroba. The land is classified as
Grade 5 (2 and 3) and soils are a mix of brown earths and peaty gleys.

There are a number of good internal tracks, providing vehicular access across the land holding.
Fields are stock fenced, with some sections of fencing replaced over the last 12 months. Water
supplies are available in all fields.

There is a small block shed on the holding, located just off the A816. The building is in a poor state
of repair, but could be replaced or upgraded as required. There is also a small borrow pit, which as
well as providing a useful source of material for the internal tracks, also serves as a useful shelter/
hardstanding area for cattle wintering.
The tenanted croft land lies on the east side of the A816, and is registered on the Crofting Register
as Croft 1 Ariogan (C4432).
