Property description

The Glen is a picturesque stone cottage, in a unique rural setting on the edge of Lochranza and Glen Chalmadale with panoramic views of across the valley and surrounding hills of Lochranza.
Sitting within approximately an acre of land, the location offers a wonderful opportunity to escape the rat race and live an idyllic life in a desirable and beautiful part of Arran. Access is via a private track crossing a burn and 4x4 or suv vehicle is recommended to ford the stream.

This charming cottage is cosy with flexible living accommodation and the opportunity to develop the land and outbuildings even further. It is the perfect spot to watch the eagles soar across the hills, listen to the deer rutting and enjoy spotting the red squirrels and numerous other native visiting wildlife to the gardens and surrounding valley.

The additional outbuildings include an appended byre and separate bothy, a polycrub tunnel and kennels.

Set amidst rolling farmland with beautiful unspoiled shore and forest walks, Lochranza is the most northerly village on Arran with its famous castle and sheltered anchorage. It is from here that the ferry leaves to the Kintyre peninsula. Lochranza is also the home of the Arran Distillery, 9 hole golf course and campsite with Stags restaurant. At the heart of Lochranza is a vibrant community and village hall which hosts events throughout the year, as well as the community owned Lochranza Country Inn, with accommodation and public bar serving a selection of food, local whisky and beers
The local primary school with Early Years classes is located 6 miles away in Pirnmill and the high school is in Lamlash to which all pupils are transported daily by bus. Pirnmill has a general store with post office counter and a well used village hall.
