The subjects are located approximately half a mile to the west of the village of Salen, on the picturesque Ardamurchan Peninsula. Local facilities include a hotel at the nearby village of Salen and Acharacle (2.5 miles) provides the
usual village amenities including two hotels, a post office, a tea room, village store, bakery, and an outdoor shop. In addition, there is a doctors' surgery, several churches and a well respected primary school. Furthermore, there is
a newly-built secondary school in the village of Strontian (9.5 miles).
The subjects lie immediately adjacent to the B8007 Salen to Kilchoan road. The A82 lies approximately 24 miles away providing transport links to the north to Fort William (approximately 33 miles) and to the south to Glasgow (approximately 120 miles).
The area is renowned for its scenery and range of outdoor and sporting activities. These include nearby sandy beaches, hill walking, bird watching deer stalking and fishing in rivers and sea lochs.
The subjects are situated on the edge of Loch Sunart benefiting from excellent views across the loch and the hills of Morvern beyond. The subjects extend to approximately 1.5 acres (0.6 ha) and comprises a dilapidated stone
cottage under a pitched slate roof. The area around the cottage is laid to grass with majority of the ground laid to woodland, scrub and rough grass. The cottage and grounds provides an excellent development opportunity.
The subjects are located in the Salen settlement development area in the Highland Wide Local Development Plan. The cottage previously benefited from detailed planning consent for reconfiguring and extension to form a 3
bedroom cottage granted in 2007, however, the consent has now expired. We are of the view that such an extension would be supported under the revised permitted development rights.
The subjects are served by a private water supply and necessary rights exist to draw water and that any future development will be able to draw water from this supply. Drainage is by means of a private system. Mains electricity
is connected to the property and heating and hot water is by electric and solid fuel fire.
