The subject of the sale is a plot of land set in the sleepy village of Achnamara on the west coast of Scotland. The land included in the sale extends to 0.24 Ha (0.59 acres) as defined by the attached plan.
The land sits behind existing properties and is bordered by a small burn that runs alongside. There are existing trees and shrubs, with most of the land overgrown with long grass.
It should be noted that the land sale is subject to a clawback provision whereby the purchaser must pay the Scottish Ministers 50% of the uplift in value of the site following the granting if any planning permission. The amount payable shall be made in one payment and shall be triggered by planning permission for any development on the site being approved. The term of clawback is set at 15 years.
All existing trees on the land, along with their future management are included in the sale. The land is also subject to several water supply pipes which must remain in place. Details of the water supply pipes can be provided.
Boundaries are to be fenced or permanently marked by purchaser within 6 months of date of entry, boundaries to be agreed with owner in advance.
Access to the land will be directly from the public road.
It is important to note a planning report was prepared on the subjects in May 2018 which shows all of the land to be within or adjacent to an area at a high risk of flood from both coastal and river sources.
Strictly by appointment through the sole selling agents. If there is a particular aspect of the property which is important to you, then please discuss it with a member of Bell Ingram staff beforehand in order to avoid a wasted journey.
Care should be taken when viewing the land.
Achnamara is a small coastal village with just 23 properties in total. It is located at the top of Knapdale Water, and with many forest routes to explore, it is an area that is popular for ramblers and cyclists. The opportunity to acquire land in the area is rare.

Lochgilphead offers a variety of services and shops including a sports centre and library as well as professional offices, supermarkets, high school and a hospital. The countryside around Lochgilphead is perfect for outdoor pursuits ranging from walking and mountain biking through to more challenging activities.
