SITUATION
This very spacious, detached 4/5 bedroom property is located on the edge of the conservation
village of Toberonochy on the Island of Luing. The property enjoys an elevated position set back
from the road into the pretty village with far reaching sea views. Struan benefits from a more
sheltered setting on Luing’s east coast and is a short walk from the picturesque harbour providing
easy access to the sea.
The popular Island of Luing, one of the former slate isles, is located conveniently close to the
mainland making it one of the most accessible of the Inner Hebridean Islands. Luing benefits from
a licensed shop and post office, two village halls, a heritage centre with café and church. The island
offers extensive walks, cycling and mountain biking and a choice of water sports including fishing,
kayaking and sailing. It is also an unspoilt haven for wildlife, attracting buzzards, deer, wild goats,
hares, otters, seals and basking sharks. A short ferry crossing links the island to the mainland and
a range of local services close by including a primary school, medical practice and 9-hole golf
course. The popular coastal town of Oban is within easy reach by car and bus and offers a wide
range of shops, cafés, restaurants, schools, leisure centre and professional services. From the town,
trains run regular services to Glasgow and beyond and from the harbour ferries sail to the Inner
and Outer Isles. At Connel to the north, a small airport operates flights to the Western Isles with
plans to extend to Glasgow in future.

DESCRIPTION
Struan is a deceptively spacious 1.5 storey detached family home, offering flexible accommodation
with 2 ground floor bedrooms and a further room ideal as a study, snug or additional bedroom.
There is also a bathroom, dining kitchen with rear access, sitting room with multi fuel stove and
small porch. On the first floor are two large attic rooms with coombed ceilings, ideal as play rooms
or as additional bedrooms, and a separate shower room. The house has been fully refurbished
in recent years by the current owner and benefits from a new oil fired boiler and radiators, new
plumbing, re-wiring and new insulation throughout. The property enjoys far reaching sea views to
the east from both ground and first floor rooms and offers scope to be extended subject to the
usual planning consents.

GARDEN
To the south of the house is a single L shaped garage/workshop with power, electric and up and
over door. Between the garage and house is a wood/coal store easily accessed from the kitchen
door. To the far side and front of the property is additional parking for several cars.
Surrounding the house is a good size garden with areas of lawn, mature trees and plants. The garden
offers a choice of seating areas and plenty of potential for development. A path gives access to
the rear of the house where a raised bank with retaining dry stone wall could be developed as a
vegetable patch or secluded seating area. To the side of the house is a further low level wood/coal
store. The boundary is marked by a mix of wooden fencing and stob and wire fencing.
