Description

**Closing Date set for 12 noon on Friday 25th January 2019**

The subjects comprise two vacant, timber-clad buildings in the scenic rural settlement of Polloch. The smaller of the two properties has a floor area of approximately 24 square metres and has been used historically as both an office and a craft shop. It comprises an entrance porch, lobby, two office rooms and a WC with wash hand basin. The larger building has a floor area of approximately 55 square metres and was designed and used for general storage. It comprises an entrance porch, WC and two large storage rooms.

Both properties are in a relatively poor condition internally and would require a considerable programme of upgrade or renovation to restore them for regular use. Alternatively, the buildings could offer development potential on a commercial or residential basis subject to the necessary consents being granted. The purchaser would be responsible for the installation and/or reconnection of services which may include the provision of a private water supply if water requirement is substantially increased.

The land included in the sale extends to 0.09 hectares (0.25 acres) an approximation of which is marked out with stakes on the site. All building contents, fixtures and fittings will be included as part of the sale.

No formal applications have been submitted and it will be the purchaser's responsibility to investigate further. All enquiries in relation to proposed use of the buildings should be referred to The Highland Council's planning department. Offers subject to planning will not be favoured.

Interested parties should note that the subject is located within the Glenhurich Forest and is accessed via a part made part unmade, forest road, which will be maintained by the owner only up to a standard suitable for their purposes. The road remains in use by the owner for its business purposes, along with other parties that have rights over it. The purchasers will have responsibility with other users for maintenance of the access road, contributing based on use.

The purchaser will be granted a non-exclusive servitude right of access for the use of the forest road for all purposes. The design speed for the forest road is 25kph (15mph) and this should be regarded as the maximum speed.

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.

Location

Polloch is one of the least explored villages of the West Highlands, situated approximately 8 miles to the north of the village of Strontian. The opportunity to acquire property in Polloch is rare. The area is steeped in history and offers some of the least explored terrain on the west coast. The village sits on the banks of the River Polloch, one of the most famous sea trout rivers in Argyll, which leads from Loch Sheil through to Loch Doilean. Much of Loch Sheil has no vehicular access, although there is a forestry road along the Polloch side of the loch which is excellent for cycle rides.

The nearest settlement is that of Strontian which lies on the banks of Loch Sunart. Strontian is a thriving community with a small shopping centre which supports a well-stocked village store with Post Office. The main local centre of Fort William is approximately 29 miles away.

Directions

From Fort William, head south on the A82 signposted for Oban for approximately 9 miles until arriving at the Corran vehicular ferry. Take the short ferry crossing to Ardgour and on disembarking, take the A861 south west towards Strontian. At Strontian take the right turn signposted for Polloch just after the bridge and continue for approximately 8 miles, passing Loch Doilean on your right-hand side, before dropping down into Polloch. As the road ends, the subjects can be found over a small bridge on your left-hand side of the forest road just past the red phone box. From Oban, head north on the A85 for approximately 5 miles, then cross Connel Bridge onto the A828, following signs for Fort William. After a further 25 miles, on arrival in Ballachullish, take the second exit at the roundabout onto the A82 and cross Ballachullish Bridge. Continue for approximately 5 miles until you reach the Corran Ferry then follow directions as above.
