13 Forestry Cottages is a semi-detached cottage type property, it is of smooth white painted render finish with contrasting grey painted relief, and all is under a tiled roof. The property provides light and bright accommodation laid out over two easily managed levels.
The house requires a degree of upgrading and modernisation work, however once completed it will inevitably lend itself perfectly as a principal family home; Eredine is also a well-known west of Scotland holiday and short break destination and so the property inevitably offers scope as a second or income producing holiday home.
Loch Awe is one of Scotlands most spectacular lochs. It is 25 miles long and runs from the village of Lochawe to Ford near the west coast to the south. At its northern end is Kilchurn Castle, a dramatic ruin, and one of Scotlands most famous and most photographed castles. There are a number of islands on the loch including Innishail, which is the burial island of the Dukes of Argyll. Inveraray Castle, the seat of the Dukes of Argyll, is at the head of Loch Fyne, 23.2 miles to the east.
There is spectacular hill walking, climbing and mountaineering in the area with skiing at Glencoe. The numerous lochs and rivers of mid Argyll provide both salmon fishing and trout fishing and the opportunity for boating and water sports. There is a variety of fresh water fish in the loch and in 2002 a British record 31lb 12oz wild brown trout was caught. Some of the local estates have low ground and rough shoots and it is possible by permission to arrange stalking.
The west of Scotland is well known among the yachting fraternity for its beautiful sailing scenery. There are marina and chandlery services at Oban, Croabh Haven and Ardfern.
