A rare opportunity to secure a prominent site of circa 4.28 acres with fine southerly views to Bute and the firth of Clyde. Mains drainage and services are live and available. Full planning for 16 dwelling houses.
Corstoun Park is located at the south end of the Cowal Peninsula close by Toward. The site is formed by former agricultural fields which formed part of Toward Farm and is located on the northern side of and abuts the A815.
From the site there are views south down the firth of Clyde and across to the island of Bute.
Toward Lighthouse is the prominent and well known local landmark of the district and Land at Corstoun park is about half a mile to the west of the light house.
The bustling west coast town of Dunoon is about 6.5 miles to the north. Dunoon is the main town of the Cowal Peninsula and has a complete range of shopping, leisure and professional services. The town has a good range of welcoming pubs and restaurants, a theatre, cinema, swimming pool and leisure centre.
The area is well served by reputable primary and secondary schooling including Toward, St Muns and Strone Primary Schools and Dunoon Grammar School.
At Dunoon there are both the Caledonian MacBrayne and Western Ferries terminals from where there are frequent passenger and vehicular sailings across to Gourock. From here, the road and public transport links make it possible to commute on a daily basis to Glasgow and the central belt. Holiday makers to Cowal experience the feeling of apparent mainland detachment created by the pleasant short ferry crossing.
It is also possible to drive to Glasgow via Loch Lomond which takes a little longer but is via some of the most famous and breathtaking countryside in western Scotland.
Dunoon is the gateway to the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and it has some of the most dramatic and picturesque scenery in the west of Scotland.
As with most parts of Scotland one is never too far from a golf course and Dunoon is no exception the district having three challenging courses.
The expanding Holy Loch Marina is nearby with its berthing and associated chandlery services, an excellent base from which to sail and explore the world famous lower Clyde and Kyles of Bute inland sea lochs and waterways.
Sea fishing is available on the Firth of Clyde and it is possible to fish for salmon and sea trout by permit on some of the rivers and lochs of the district.
Some of the local estates can, by arrangement, offer rough and commercial shooting as well as opportunities to stalk for roe, sika and red deer.
The area is renowned for its spectacular scenery and wildlife, there are near endless walks, hill climbs and quiet country roads offering wonderful rambling and cycling country.
