Full Description


DETACHED TIMBER COTTAGE, which was let as self-catering holiday accommodation but which has recently been granted planning consent for a change of use from holiday house to dwellinghouse the terms and conditions of which can be viewed online at reference number: 10/01117/PP.  was built in 1950 by the Forestry Commission. It was subsequently renovated and upgraded in the late 1980’s to include the addition of electric storage heating and double glazing. The main walls are of timber frame construction, clad externally with timber shingles, and under a pitched, Decra tiled roof.  The accommodation comprises an open plan sitting room / dining room / kitchen area, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom.

The adjoining FISH FARM was operating until the end of April 2010 and represents an excellent business opportunity. Alternatively, there may be scope to build a further house on this plot, subject to all the necessary consents.

Approached by a concrete drive at the northern side of the property and bypassing the garage/workshop belonging to the fish farm. There is also a timber shed with light and power at the top of the site. This freshwater fish farm is located alongside Eas a Chais burn in a disused quarry and has produced up to 100,000 smolts in the past. It was built in 1985 and has a gravity fed supply. A "dam" construction feeds two 6 inch pipelines approx. 200 yds upstream of the farm. These pipelines run into a header tank which then distributes water around the site.

Tanks available:

2 x 3m diameter fibreglass tanks x 1m deep                             
8 x 4m diameter fibreglass tanks x 1m deep

All tanks discharge into 2 x 6 inch outlet pipes which then discharge into the burn. Torinturk has a discharge consent of 3283 cu.m. per day. The fish farm is not currently operating as a business and may be suitable for development to provide a further house, subject to the relevant consents being obtained. Prospective purchasers should contact Argyll & Bute Council in this respect.

Nearby Tarbert has a full range of local facilities including Schools, Doctors, Dentists, hotels, restaurants, Post Office, Bank, various shops, and a small supermarket.  Tarbert is an ancient fishing port blessed with a naturally safe harbour.  It is particularly well known as a yachting haven and is renowned for hosting the Scottish Series Sailing Regatta annually.  It also boasts a Bowling & Tennis Club and there is a challenging 9-hole golf course.
