Set back from the road, Rowanlea is in a superb walk-in condition and has benefitted from progressive refurbishment & renovation over the years. It is tastefully decorated throughout and this, coupled with the large windows, gives it a light and spacious feel.

Rowanlea would make an ideal home for a couple or small family or equally as a holiday letting opportunity given its location and access to the many outdoor activities on offer. We recommend early viewing of this property as we are sure that it will not fail to impress.

An entrance porch leads you from the front of the house into the welcoming, fully carpeted living room boasting an open fire on a tiled fireplace. To one side lies a hallway off which the three double bedrooms and a family bathroom fitted with a white 3-piece sanitary suite can be accessed. Two of the bedrooms are complemented by large, high-specification en-suite shower rooms.

Each bedroom offers ample built in wardrobe space, and two additional cupboards in the hallway providing further storage space. A drop-down loft staircase provides access to a sizeable, partially boarded attic running the full length of the property.

To the other side of the living room, open-plan accommodation flows into a bright and breezy dining room, benefiting from French doors that open up directly to the large outside decking area.
With open views to the rear garden, the kitchen is modern and well-appointed, featuring plentiful floor & wall units, an integrated gas hob and cooker and a dark 1.5 bowl resin sink.

Just off the kitchen sits a useful utility area with further storage units, appliances, steel sink and modern gas boiler. The accommodation is completed by a 'boot room' rear porch– perfect for drying yourself off after a cycle round Lismore, or a walk by nearby Castle Stalker.


Rowanlea is situated in a quiet location within the desirable coastal village of Port Appin. Lying on the coast of Appin north of Loch Creran, Port Appin is a picturesque village on a peaceful secluded peninsula between Oban and Ballachulish.

Port Appin has a thriving population, and benefits from amenities such as a post office, true community co-op general store and two award winning hotel with restaurant's, The Airds and The Pierhouse. The area also benefits from a reliable broadband service and a strong sense of community in both the village and surrounding areas. A primary school provides education for younger children, whilst a high school can be found in the seaside town of Oban, around 25 minutes by car. Local busses also serve Appin directly from Oban.

One of Scotland's most romantic ruined castles, the much-photographed Castle Stalker, occupies a tiny rock island to the north of the village. A great way to explore the area is cycling and bikes can be hired in Port Appin. A small passenger ferry runs daily to the neighbouring island of Lismore. Other outdoor pursuit on offer include boat hire, sailing, windsurfing and water-skiing.

The nearby town of Oban has a wide range of shopping, recreational facilities, banks and professional services plus the Lorn & Islands Hospital. Oban is an expanding port with an attractive sea front and a busy harbour from where ferries serve the Inner and Outer Hebrides.



From Oban take the A85 to Connel and then the A828 over the Connel Bridge heading for Fort William. Continue through the villages of Benderloch and Barcaldine until reaching Appin Village. Turn left at Gunn's Garage (sign-posted for Lismore Ferry) and follow the road for approximately 2 miles. Rowanlea is located on the righthand side immediately after the 30 mile an hour signs. A For Sale board is in place by the main road.
