LO­CATED on the beau­ti­ful He­bridean is­land of Gigha, Ar­dailly Mill and Croft boasts un­in­ter­rupted views across the Sound of Jura to the is­lands of Is­lay and Jura from an idyl­lic set­ting that in­cludes gar­den grounds and a fur­ther 13 acres of sur­round­ing croft land ex­tend­ing down to pri­vate shore frontage.

The C-listed former wa­ter mill and crofter’s cot­tage are cur­rently un­in­hab­it­able (no Home Re­port) how­ever, ar­chi­tect’s draw­ings are in place to sym­pa­thet­i­cally trans­form the croft into a three bed­roomed home with liv­ing room, din­ing kitchen, util­ity and bath­room while re­tain­ing the charm of the orig­i­nal prop­erty. Ser­vices are on site (mains elec­tric­ity, wa­ter and phone/broad­band) although the new owner will need to in­stall a new sep­tic tank. The is­land has good lo­cal ameni­ties, spec­tac­u­lar scenery, white sandy beaches and is un­der a three-hour drive from the cen­tral belt of Scot­land via a reg­u­lar 20-minute ferry cross­ing. A guide price of £300,000 has been set by Daw­sons Es­tate Agents in Oban.
