Property Description

Lower & Upper Glenelg are a handsome pair of conversion properties formed by a very pretty stone built detached property. The property is of white painted stone and harled finish with smooth ashlar at window mullions and doors and all under a tiled roof. The accommodation is all freshly presented and while in two separate units could be easily reconverted to form a single home. In its present form it lends itself perfect for resident owners to live in one of the properties while generating self- catering holiday rental income from the other, the convenience of on- site living makes for easy changeovers.

In recent times the property has been well maintained with regular professional maintenance and refurbishment and it displays the sensitive preservation of period features, picture rails, cornicing, fireplaces etc.

Glenelg is situated in the picturesque coastal village of Tighnabruaich on the west coast of Scotland. The house is located at the northern end of the village in an area known locally as Rhubaan. The house is set amid mature sheltered gardens and from its slightly elevated position there are quite exceptional views out over the sheltered Tighnabruaich anchorage and beyond to the water and landscape known as the Kyles of Bute and on to the Island of Bute beyond.

Tighnabruaich is a well-known and sheltered anchorage with moorings that are always lively- with the comings and goings of resident and passing boating and yachting craft. One of its highlights must surely be the regular berthing of the famous Waverley, reputed to be the world’s 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 and level walk and offers a Doctor’s surgery and local amenities that cater for everyday needs and requirements. A bus service runs from Tighnabruaich to both Rothesay and Dunoon.

The city of Glasgow is 55 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, 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 “Argyll’s 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.
