SITUATIONEnjoying open skies and unobstructed sea views looking towards Jura and Islay, this plot is nestled in the small rural hamlet of Glassard on the east side of the picturesque Inner Hebridean Island of Colonsay.The Island of Colonsay is often referred to as the jewel of the Hebrides. At 10 miles x 2 miles wideit is home to <200 people and has a lively established connection to the arts scene having hosted both small music and literary festivals. The beaches are renowned and the crystal clear waters will tempt the bravest of swimmers! With no high hills to trap the rain clouds Colonsay has a relatively dry climate for these parts. The Island has a busy hotel, and a scattering of self-catering holiday houses. It supports a healthy and sustainable amount of tourists each year whilst being home to less than 200 people. There is a very small airport that connects to Oban and Islay airports and the Island even boasts a golf course. The one village general store does a sterling job of providing supplies for all on the Island.DESCRIPTIONAn enchanting plot of land with an existing old byre which is ripe for development.
