Owner occupied croftland

The subject for sale offers a rare opportunity to purchase a substantial area of owner occupied croft land which also benefits from Planning Permission in Principle for a detached house. The land stretches across Achnahard to the sea and enjoys stunning views towards Staffa, Ardmeanach and Loch Scridain.

Ardtun is a small settlement less than 2 miles from Bunessan, the largest village on the Ross of Mull and lies approximately 29 miles south of Craignure. Facilities include a well-stocked grocer’s shop (including Post Office services), gift shop, hotel, primary school, church, doctor’s surgery and police station. Mull itself is the most accessible of all the Inner Hebridean Islands, only a two hour drive north-west of Glasgow and a 45 minute sailing from Oban with regular daily sailings also from Fishnish to Lochaline and Tobermory to Kilchoan. A popular tourist destination, the island is wonderfully diverse, with towering sea cliffs, white sandy beaches and a large mountain range with the peak of Ben More rising to over 3,000 feet. The island is also considered to be one of best locations in Britain for wildlife spotting, with frequent sightings of dolphins, otters, eagles and red deer.
