*Closing Date set for Thursday 2nd February 2023 at 12 noon*
Lechuary Sawmill Site was a former FLS sawmill site which has remained unused for many years. Mostly flat, the land area benefits from a compact gravel base road, allowing easy access for vehicles.
The site sits in a quiet, rural location, just a short distance from the coastal town of Lochgilphead. Currently offering scope for storage or parking of commercial vehicles, the site offers scope for development, subject to the purchaser obtaining the necessary planning consents.
The land extends to an area of 3 hectares (7.4 acres), mainly flat, with some areas of concrete hardstanding. Around 50% of the site is covered by a selection of mixed woodland, comprising mixed broadleaf and Sitka Spruce.
The property is currently occupied by a license holder, let on a license for storing various equipment, vehicles and materials. The license will be terminated and all items belonging to the license holder will be removed in advance of completion of sale to give the purchaser vacant possession.
It should be noted that various vehicle tyres and materials located around the property are to be included in the sale.
The site is located within a Rural Opportunity Area designated in the current Local Development Plan. This would allow for small scale infill, rounding off and change of use of existing buildings. The appropriate nature and scale of any development would however only be assessed by the Council through the submission and determination of a planning application. Please note, a development clawback will be incorporated on the land should planning permission be achieved in the future for development.
It is anticipated that a closing date will be fixed in due course and we would advise prospective purchasers to register their interest with Bell Ingram LLP through a solicitor. The owner however reserves the right to sell without setting a formal closing date and will not be bound to accept the highest or indeed any offer received.
Lechuary Sawmill Site enjoys a rural location just a short commute from the popular coastal town of Lochgilphead. The town offers several amenities, with a blend of supermarkets and independent shops catering for everyday requirements.
The local offices for Argyll and Bute council are located centrally within Lochgilphead, along with a modern medical centre and secondary school.
Ardrishaig, the neighbouring village to Lochgilphead, is renowned for sailing and water sports, and Tarbert, a picturesque harbour village, is located just a few miles to the south.
The thriving town of Oban is located around 34 miles to the north and the largest port in the west of Scotland. It is home to the main Calmac ferry terminal which serves Mull, the inner Hebridean islands as well as Barra, South Uist and the Outer Hebrides. Oban is popular with tourists and hosts many teashops, restaurants and bars. For those feeling more active, the Atlantis Leisure Centre, located in the town centre, offers swimming, gym and sports facilities.
If leaving Lochgilphead, travel north on the A816
before turning right at Bridgend village.
Follow the signs for Kilmichael Glassary and continue
along the road for approximately 2.3 miles. The
entrance to the site is located on the right, just as the
road bends to the left, clearly marked by a sale board.
