Enjoying an elevated position in a picturesque rural location and with distant sea views, the subjects of sale present an opportunity to purchase two spacious plots on which to build a permanent home, holiday home or weekend bolthole. The plots are approximately a quarter of an acre in size, are on a fairly level site and are easily accessed from the single track road that leads to the stunning sandy bay at Uisken - an increasingly sought-after residential area, popular with the local community and visitors alike.
Uisken is a small coastal settlement centered around a sheltered natural harbour located some 3 miles south of Bunessan, which is the largest village on the Ross of Mull. Bunessan offers all the usual village amenities including a Post Office, doctor’s surgery, several shops and a popular hotel serving bar meals. Lying some 5 miles west of Bunessan is the village of Fionnphort from where regular 10-minute ferry crossings depart to the neighbouring Island of Iona famed the world over for its Abbey. Also available from Fionnphort are sightseeing and wildlife trips to Fingal’s Cave on Staffa and the Treshnish Isles. Tobermory, the capital of the Isle of Mull, is located 42 miles away at the northern end of the island.
The Isle of Mull is served by regular ferry crossings from Oban and is the second largest and one of the most accessible of the Inner Hebrides. With wild mountainous upland and 300 miles of spectacular coastline, Mull offers awe-inspiring scenery and an abundance of wildlife including golden eagles, otters, seals, dolphins and whales. As such, Mull has a relatively long tourist season and receives large numbers of visitors well into October. Salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishing are readily available on the island. The surrounding coastal waters are a sailor’s paradise that allow ready access to the many and varied islands off the west coast of Mull including Iona, Staffa, the Treshnish Islands and Coll and Tiree.
