Make your grand design happen on a Scottish island

If you’ve ever dreamt of creating your very own grand design on a tranquil Scottish island, then help is at hand.

Leading independent property consultancy Galbraith has two fantastic plots for sale on one of Scotland’s most beautiful and unspoilt islands.

The Inner Hebridean island of Luing is one of the famous Slate Islands on Argyll’s west coast, lying south of Oban. Its charm lies in its natural beauty and unspoilt peaceful scenery and the plots for sale occupy a spectacular setting, commanding stunning sea views on the edge of the village of Cullipool.

The fully serviced plots have been levelled, ready for development and are being offered with full planning permission for architect-designed houses.

These are likely to attract buyers looking for a second home, as well as those keen to retire permanently to a truly spectacular area of Scotland.

Nicky Archibald, handling the sale of the plots, said: ‘We have witnessed a growing interest for properties on the Inner Hebridean Island of Luing over the past couple of years.

‘Many property buyers on the island have first visited as a holiday maker and have fallen in love with the spectacular scenery and superb lifestyle.

‘Buyers are very much a mix of permanent residents as well as those keen to invest in the second home market. The island comprises a mix of traditional cottages, with some new builds which have recently been completed as well as the plots of land we are currently marketing.

‘The plots offer a once in a lifetime opportunity for those keen to design their dream home, only yards from the shore on the sought after west coast with its stunning sunsets and are likely to attract a lot of interest. Moorings are also available for the plots from the local mooring association.’

Cullipool is one of two villages on the island, located in the north west. This attractive village of bright white cottages is set starkly against the slate that makes up its beach. Slate quarrying underpinned the economy of the island for many years with slate still being extracted from the quarries at the north end of Cullipool until 1965.

The Isle of Luing plots are being sold by Galbraith at a guide price of £95,000 each.

Information about local architects and building firms is also available from the agent.
