Not only does Scotland have some of the UK’s most stunning coastline, we are also home to over 30,000 lochs and lochans, meaning our small country certainly punches above its weight in terms of waterside vistas. Scotland’s west coast has some of the best that Scotland has to offer, with bustling coastal towns such as Oban and Tarbert combining accessibility with stunning rural surrounding. It’s therefore no surprise that our west coast agents are seeing increasing demand from city dwellers looking to relocate.
Here is a run-down of some of our best waterside properties currently on the market with Bell Ingram.
6 Ganavan Sands, Oban
It’s hard to imagine a location that epitomises coastal living more than Ganavan Sands, a golden stretch of sandy beach three miles from Oban, the bustling town dubbed ‘Scotland’s Seafood Capital’.
With panoramic views towards the islands of Mull and Lismore, 6 Ganavan Sands offers a unique opportunity to purchase a magnificent, six-bedroom, architect-designed property with an unrivalled beachfront location.
Featuring stunning accommodation over two floors with six bedrooms, four bathrooms and five public rooms, you won’t be short on space for entertaining.
Located 2.5 miles north of Oban, the golden sand of Ganavan beach is just a few minutes' walk from the property, giving opportunity to explore the beach front, with further exciting coastal walks close by.
Kilmun Farmhouse is a charming four-bedroom detached house on the outskirts of Dalavich village with far-reaching views over Loch Awe.
Kilmun has been successfully operating as a holiday home providing a significant secondary income but is equally well suited as a family home.
It’s the tasteful blend of 18th century heritage with contemporary style which makes this traditional stone property (which dates back to the mid-1700s) so unique.
The stand-out feature is the attached byre which has been converted into a magnificent 40ft long combined living space, with a spacious kitchen, dining area and open plan lounge. The room has a feature wood burning stove, providing warmth and comfort in equal measure.
Loch Awe is one of Scotland’s largest and most picturesque freshwater lochs. Its wooded shores and scattered small islands attract numerous visitors to the area, which is renowned for its salmon and trout fishing.
Located on the shorefront of Pier Road in the popular coastal town of Tarbert, The Penthouse offers buyers an opportunity to acquire an iconic apartment in the former, historic Columba Hotel Development.
This exciting project has transformed the historic c-listed hotel into a selection of modern, high-specification apartments.
The development contains a limited number of luxurious apartments over four stories, with the magnificent Penthouse occupying the complete top floor of the building.

The stylish, high specification copper themed kitchen sits within the walls of the intricate mansard style roof architecture and enjoys panoramic views across the water.
Much thought has been given to the design and layout, with large windows also included in the roof structure, flooding the area with light and capitalising on the stunning views across Tarbert Bay.
