A set of stairs from the B8000 leads to a former concrete slip. While The Chalet has no mooring, there is a local mooring association, Tighnabruaich Boat Yard Ltd, from whom it is understood that it may be possible to arrange the purchase, seasonal or short term hire of a mooring.
The development opportunity at The Chalet is situated in the picturesque coastal village of Tighnabruaich on the west coast of Scotland. The existing structure, formerly, The Chalet Hotel, is located within 350m of Tighnabruaich Pier, an area known locally as Port Driseach, and from its prominent setting there are arguably the best views in Tighnabruaich village. The aspects are far reaching over the sheltered anchorage of Tighnabruaich and both the East & West Kyles. The views are panoramic and often breath-taking across the famous water and landscape known as the Kyles of Bute with spectacular views over to the adjacent land mass of the Isle of Bute, and away south to Inchmarnock and the high tops of Arran.
Tighnabruaich is a well-known sheltered anchorage with moorings that are always lively with the comings and goings of boating and yachting craft. One of its highlights must surely be the regular berthing of the famous Waverley, reputed to be the worlds last sea going paddle steamer. Always a sight to behold as she berths at Tighnabruaich pier with day trippers.
The village centre is a comfortable walk and offers a doctors surgery and local amenities that cater for everyday needs. A bus service runs from Tighnabruaich to both Rothesay and Dunoon. The city of Glasgow is 56 miles distant (via a pleasant boat crossing to Gourock) and has numerous retail districts and all the higher educational, cultural and leisure services normally associated with a major international centre.
Tighnabruaich has a reputable and award winning primary school and secondary is available at Dunoon Grammar. The area is famous for its dramatic natural scenic beauty; yachtsmen and women the world over sail through the scenic Kyles from the Clyde marinas and on through the Crinan canal and out to the Hebridean islands. A new marina and restaurant complex at Portavadie is 4 miles to the west and offers facilities such as a leisure centre with indoor and outdoor infinity pool and beauty treatment rooms. Portavadie also hosts facilities supporting great mountain bike trails in the area.
The area offers much in the way of relaxing outdoor pursuits. Tighnabruaich Golf Club is a scenic and challenging 9-hole golf course. There is tennis and inevitably, a famous sailing school.
Sea, river and loch fishing are also available in the area, as are a number of commercially run shoots. Some of the local estates allow stalking by arrangement.
Tighnabruaich lies on Argylls Secret Coast, which stretches from Strachur at the top of Loch Fyne round the coast to Colintraive. It is an area of stunning natural beauty where there are countless opportunities to discover peaceful locations.
Nearby activities include walks in forests or along the coast, fishing, kayaking or sailing and enjoying the wildlife.
