Full Description


Situated just a mile from the main ferry terminal at Port Askaig, No. 17 Caol Ila is the southeastmost UPPER FLOOR FLAT in a block of four former distillery houses (Nos. 16 to 19 Caol Ila).  The property location is peaceful, set just above Caol Ila Distillery.  The house benefits from exhilarating views over the Sound of Islay to the Paps of Jura.  The distillery itself features in the foreground.  The block of four houses is whitewashed, in an open position, accessed by a private roadway to the rear leading off the public road to Caol Ila Distillery.  

Internally, the property would now benefit from some modernisation and redecoration, with the kitchen particularly in need of some upgrading.  A number of points are highlighted in the Home Report.  

The flat (except the rear porch) is fully double glazed.  Various electric storage and panel heaters will be included, without warranty as regards current condition.


Porch: of timber construction, entered over walk way from private access road at the rear of the property; double glazed main entry door and storage cupboard.  

Hallway: internal, accessing all rooms, except kitchen.

Sitting Room: a large room to the rear, with bright outlook over amenity ground; coal fire place.  

Kitchen/Diner: off sitting room, facing southeast; walk-in larder and walk-in storage cupboard.

Bedroom 1: with view to the front over Sound of Islay; shelved cupboard.

Bedroom 2: again with excellent front view; shelved cupboard.  

Bedroom 3: to rear.

Bathroom: to front, with bath, W.C., and wash hand basin; instant electric shower over bath.


The property has its own exclusive garden area, including shed, at the rear.  A share of the mutual access and courtyard around the block is included.  One of the coal cellars on the northwest gable end of the block is included with this property.  

The property title includes a right of vehicular access over a loop roadway serving the blocks of former distillery houses which links to the public road to Caol Ila Distillery.  There is currently no designated parking as such, though a space could possibly be created on the garden area which pertains to this flat.
