Set in a tranquil location with far reaching views across to Ben Cruachan, Barran House offers buyers an opportunity to acquire a lovely five-bedroom property with attached garage.

The property is accessed from the road via a shared track, with gates leading to a gravel parking area large enough to accommodate several vehicles. Entrance to the property is from an area of decking that extends across the front of the property, leading into a central hallway.

A combined kitchen with dining room is positioned to the front of the house, capitalising on the ever-changing views across the open countryside. French doors also open up from the dining area to the exterior decking, creating a wonderful sensation of open plan living.

To the rear of the kitchen, a glazed door leads to a sizable utility room, which in turn provides further internal access to the attached garage. A 'Jack and Jill' style downstairs shower room can be accessed from the utility room or hallway.

Three double bedrooms are located on the ground floor, two of which benefit from full en-suite facilities. With neutral décor and wooden effect flooring, the rooms have a lovely airy feeling.

Also located to the front of the property a large sitting room is flooded with natural daylight thanks to the installation of two sets of patio doors, complimented by a front facing window.

A wooden staircase leads from the hallway to the upper floor where a family lounge creates the perfect place to sit and relax. The coombed ceiling design with inset Velux windows adds a nice element to the design.

The layout is completed by way of two further bedrooms, one of which benefits from an interconnecting bathroom, with secondary access from the landing area. The bathroom is well specified with Jacuzzi style bath with shower over, complimented by a stylish two-piece bathroom suite.

The layout and functionality of this architect designed family home has resulted in a truly flexible living space, offering potential for the property to be operated as a bed and breakfast with seperate living accommodation on the upper floor.

A large area of decking to the front and south side of the property creates a wonderful place to sit and take in the spectacular views across the garden and beyond to the surrounding mountains. A gravel parking area extends around the property, with parking for several vehicles.

An area of garden to the front has been set aside as a lawn, with a selection of maturing shrubs planted around the perimeter.

The attached garage offers parking for a vehicle, as well as providing various storage or conversion options thanks to the large attic area.


Barran House enjoys a peaceful, elevated location on the outskirts of Oban, just a couple of miles away from the town centre and its well-established secondary school.

Oban is a busy west coast town with a thriving local population, as well as being a popular tourist destination. The town offers a comprehensive range of facilities and amenities, including shops, banks and building societies, various restaurants, cafes and bars. There is a large leisure centre as well as a fitness centre, sailing club and golf club. There are a number of primary schools and a well-respected high school, as well as a medical centre, hospital and churches of various denominations. The town prides itself on the title, "Scotland's Seafood Capital" and has a longstanding fishing heritage with an abundance of establishments serving fresh local fish.

The town of Oban is also commonly referred to as the "Gateway to the Isles" with panoramic views of the mountains, islands and lochs which have captivated many authors and poets over the years. It has an ever-expanding busy harbour from which the many Caledonian MacBrayne ferries operate daily, serving both the Inner and Outer Hebrides.



From Argyll Square (Oban town centre) follow signs for the A83 to Campbeltown. Take a left turn signposted for Glencruitten Golf Course immediately before the church. Continue past the golf course for approximately 2 miles, following the single-track road round to the right. The road eventually drops down a hill to a small T-junction. Take the road to the left, signposted for Connel and follow the road for around 500 yards. The driveway to Barran House is located on the left-hand side marked by an American style post box opposite a passing place. The driveway will be clearly marked by a For Sale board.
