Until 2020 The Corran traded as a successful 4 star B & B which offers a fantastic opportunity for any new owner to re-introduce the business side of things once again. With the properties location and setting it proved popular over the years and due to the layout it works very well as a family home and business all under one roof in addition to the self-catering cottages rental income already being offered.
My client would be able to discuss the options and information in more detail during a formal viewing and it is due to our client’s retirement that the property has been placed on the open market.
The property needs to be viewed to fully appreciate what is on offer and the potential not only as a home but as a business, going forward.

Property Information



Living Accommodation:

When the property was a B & B, the current owners utilised the en-suite bedroom, family room, study and cloakroom on the ground floor for themselves.


The Corran has an excellent rural location just outside the popular town of Lochgilphead in Argyll and Bute. Lochgilphead is a bustling town with a variety of shops and amenities including secondary schooling, banks, a hospital, supermarket, small swimming pool and a sports centre with the administrative headquarters of Argyll & Bute Council located at Kilmory.
The town is also ideally placed for tourism, exploration and outdoor enthusiasts looking to enjoy what the area has to offer including picturesque walks, fishing, golfing and off course sailing. The famous yachting basin is located at Crinan, which is practically on the doorstep of The Corran. Inveraray, ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, is only a short drive away, as is Oban, regarded as the “ Gateway to the Isles”, with Glasgow only 90 miles away and can be reached comfortably within 2 hours. Ferries to the neighbouring islands such as Islay and Jura are located at Kennacraig, on the outskirts of the popular fishing/sailing village of Tarbert with regular daily sailings to Mull from Oban.
Lochgilphead is accessed via the A83 tourist route, leading all the way from Loch Lomond to Arrochar, Inveraray, Lochgilphead, Tarbert and onto Campbelltown.
