Property Description

The subjects of sale comprise an owner occupied croft extending to 1.66 ha (4.10 acres) situated in a magnificent location enjoying stunning views to Loch Etive, Ben Cruachan and the surrounding countryside. The sale represents an excellent opportunity in a superb location.

The croft is located in the sought after Airds Bay area on the outskirts of the village of Taynuilt, just 12 miles from the principal town of Oban. The thriving and popular village of Taynuilt offers a shop/post office, Hotel and restaurant, Butchers Shop, Doctors surgery, golf course, Sports Pavilion, Church, Village hall, Tearoom, Gift shop and Primary School with pre 5 nursery.

The croft is registered with the Crofting Commission (Register Number A0014) and has been operated by the sellers as a very successful horticultural business for many years. All greenhouses, poly tunnels (all with auto watering systems) and remaining equipment are included in the sale.

The croft is fully fenced with vehicular and pedestrian access by way of a small road bridge from the desirable and sought after residential settlement of Airds Bay. In this area, there are a cluster of good quality individual properties set within a tranquil and attractive location.

The croft benefits from planning permission in principle for the erection of a croft house, subject to the necessary approval of Argyll & Bute Council. Planning Permission in Principle was granted in June 2018 under reference: 18/00967/PPP. Further details, including a site plan are annexed.

The croft is split into three main areas; the nursery area and two further fields. All areas are accessed via a vehicular gate to the front of the croft. The croft also benefits from a shared right to the common grazings at Airds Bay, (Register number A1889 within the township of Airds Bay, Ardchattan and Muckairn). The common grazings extend to 13.76 Ha (34 acres) and are shared amongst three other grazers. We understand the soumings for Croft 4 Airds Bay are for two cows
on the common grazings. The common grazings encompass some of the spectacular shore line of Loch Etive and offer good grazing land.

Croft 4 has been used for the grazing of horses and other livestock and would be suitable for a variety of uses.
