CLOSING DATE SET FOR THURSDAY, 18TH FEBRUARY 2021 AT NOON.

Barrachuile forms a compact agricultural and lifestyle property located in an attractive rural location, offering excellent potential. The small villages of Kilmichael Glassary and Bridgend are located only three miles to the south west, with Lochgilphead around 7 miles to the south and Oban some 37 miles to the north. Lochgilphead provides a good range of retail outlets, leisure facilities, a primary and secondary school, and various bars and restaurants.

Barrachuile provides a rare opportunity to acquire a small farm with excellent potential, including a traditional shepherd’s cottage in need of modernisation, a small outbuilding and about 38.50 Ha (95.13 Acres) of land. The property is accessed via a private road and occupies an elevated but secluded position with excellent views of the surrounding countryside. Previously run as a small sheep unit, there is scope to develop the farm through potential diversification and afforestation on the land, subject to the necessary consents.
