Set in a large land area of approximately 15 Acres, Cnoc An Fhurain offers buyers a rare opportunity to acquire a three-bedroom detached bungalow with far reaching views across Loch Creran. The property is of brick and block construction and sits under a tiled roof.

Entrance is from the parking area and into a spacious central hallway with further access to the family lounge, combined kitchen/dining room, family bathroom, large bedroom/studio and two further double bedrooms, each with built in storage wardrobes. A further sheltered entrance is located to the rear of the property, complete
with disabled access ramp.

A loft ladder provides access to a large attic room which could possibly be converted to provide an additional bedroom, subject to the necessary planning approvals. The property does require some modernisation to bring up to a more acceptable living standard and would be an
interesting project for those looking to create their ideal family home.

Access is from a layby on the road by private, gated driveway, with parking outside the bungalow for severalvehicles. The land extends to the hill area adjacent and behind the property, most of which is uncultivated grassland with pockets of mature trees. A detached garage offers covered parking or storage options and a polytunnel is ideally placed for those looking to prepare plants for the mature gardens that surround the property.

With its expansive land area of around 15 acres, Cnoc and Fhurain offers space and flexibility for those looking for a lifestyle change, or to operate a home-based business. It is expected that the property will create significant interest in the market, and early viewing is advised.


Cnoc an Fhurain is situated in Barcaldine, a delightful rural community located close to the shore of Loch Creran in an area of great natural beauty, steeped in history and with an abundance of flora and fauna. The small settlement provides abundant opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast whilst still being within easy reach of the principal towns of Oban to the South and Fort William
to the North. Places of interest include Barcaldine Castle, an early 17th-century tower house and Ardchattan Priory Garden on the north shore of Loch Etive. The village has a primary school and other local services can be found at nearby Benderloch and Connel. Oban airport which is
located by North Connel is also to hand.

Oban supports a wide range of shopping, recreational facilities, banks, building societies and professional offices. There are a number of primary schools, a high school, a leisure centre and a hospital as well as churches of different denominations. It is an expanding port with an attractive sea front and busy harbour from which the Caledonian MacBrayne ferries operate serving
the Inner Hebrides and some of the Outer Hebrides.



From Oban, take the A85 towards Crianlarich and Fort William. After around 4 miles in the village of Connel, take the right hand turn for the A828. Follow the road across the Connel Bridge and continue for around 7 miles, passing through Benderloch, until you reach the village of Barcaldine. The access drive to Cnoc and Fhurain is located in a layby on the right-hand side.
