Full Description


An exceptional and rare opportunity to acquire a complete registered croft at the foot of the Rhinns of Islay.  The croft comprises approx. 2.69 acres (just over 1 hectare) of grass land on the former Claddach Estate, in an elevated position, adjacent to the village of Portnahaven.  It enjoys marvellous sweeping and expansive views over the villages of Portnahaven and Port Wemyss, the Island of Orsay, and the Atlantic Ocean.

The croft land is well drained and slopes down to the rear of the residential properties fronting Church Street, High Street and Queen Street.  It sits in front of the former coastguard look-out building, now a dwelling known as Fourwinds.  Stock fencing is provided around the boundaries.


Indicated outlined red and shaded yellow on the copy title plan displayed with the photographs.  The title includes access rights over the road/track shaded brown and is subject to third party access over the road/track shaded blue.


Given that the property is an entire registered croft, it is anticipated that Planning Permission, subject to conditions, should be available for the erection of a croft house on the land.  The seller has, however, not made formal enquiries of the Local Authority and prospective purchasers are required to satisfy themselves.  In particular the precise position of an actual house site would require to be agreed with the Local Authority as part of the Planning Permission process.  The purchaser should make his/her own enquiries in regard to availability of croft house building grants.  The property will be sold as a registered croft and will not require to be de-crofted as a condition of any sale.
