Nestled on the shores of West Loch on the outskirts of the small coastal village of Tarbert, Corranbuie is an enchanting detached three-bedroom cottage sitting in a private land and shore area of approximately 4.25 acres.
The property is of stone construction with harled finish sitting under a traditional slate roof and is accessed from the road via a short private track and gate to an open parking area.
The entrance to the house leads into a hallway, and onwards a central sitting room complete with a cosy open fireplace. A double bedroom is located off the sitting room, well suited to visiting family or guests with mobility limitations. A front porch has been adapted to give storage options.
The split-level kitchen is located to the front of the
house, offering fantastic views across the grounds and giving further access to the impressive glass-fronted dining room and adjacent lounge, the latter benefitting from the installation of a multi fuel stove.
A twisting staircase leads from the central sitting room to the upper floor where two double bedrooms are located, linked by a central landing. The coombed ceilings give a real sense of character whist both rooms are flooded with natural daylight through the installation of additional Velux roof windows.
Corranbuie offers a fantastic opportunity to acquire a Lochside cottage with shorefront land, and with minor modernisation, would make a superb holiday cottage with a potential for significant secondary income.
Externally, the stunning grounds of Corranbuie extend all the way to the waters edge, where boat mooring and launching is possible during high tides. The shoreline offers opportunities to explore the everchanging coastal pools and sands, ideal for those looking to enjoy private walks.
A combination of mature trees and saplings enhance the well-maintained grounds. Additional external storage is provided by way of a detached stone garage with lean-to outbuilding. A large brick patio area provides the perfect place to entertain guests and enjoy the tranquil surroundings.
Corranbuie is situated on the shores of West Loch on the outskirts of the small coastal village of Tarbert. Tarbert is one of the most attractive fishing villages in Argyll, with its colourful harbour attracting commercial vessels and pleasure craft throughout the year. It supports a number of shops, pubs, hotels and restaurants plus
a high-performing state school offering primary and secondary education. There is a short 9-hole golf course and two major golf courses at Machrihanish, including the Machrihanish Links one of the finest links in the country and voted one of the top 50 courses in the UK.

Kintyre and wider Argyll. The area boasts fishing,
walking and other outdoor pursuits in abundance.
The region is peppered with excellent sea angling,
fly fishing and coarse fishing opportunities in some
wonderfully picturesque locations, be the rivers, the sea or freshwater lochs. The nearby Crinan Canal offers sailors a leisurely, navigable route between the Clyde and the Inner Hebrides, without the need for a long diversion around the Kintyre peninsula.

The ferry terminal at Claonaig, at the south, provides crossings to the Isle of Arran. Portavadie is just a short ferry journey from Tarbert on Loch Fyne. The area is very quiet with many walks and areas for cycling. Tarbert is
