Riverbank Cottages in Glencoe not only offers the buyer this incredibly rare opportunity in one of the most sought after areas of the UK, but also offers planning permission for a fourth cottage and the option for the buyer to live in one of the properties.

The spectacularly mountainous location is a tourist honeypot, with skiing enthusiasts especially well catered for. But, with the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, just a short drive away and a host of sporting options on its doorstep – Riverbank offers an all year round business.

With a Four Star Visit Scotland rating and situated in an idyllic rural setting on the banks of the River Coe, the three cottages boast magnificent panoramic views and the complete business package is currently on the market with leading land and property agent Bell Ingram for a guide price of £595,000.

Each of the three luxury cottages offer open plan living, with spacious kitchen, dining and lounge areas. There are two cottages with three double bedrooms and one cottage with two double bedrooms, with all bedrooms offering en-suite bathroom facilities. One cottage bedroom is also equipped for users with disabilities.

All three cottages are carpeted throughout, offer walk in store cupboards and are fully equipped with central heating. Two out of the three provide views both to the front and out over the river.

Will Banham from Bell Ingram, said: “We don’t often see lifestyle business opportunities like this coming to the market, particularly in an area so popular with tourists.”

“This area is a tourist magnet and Riverbank Cottages is already a profitable business, but with planning permission already in place for a three bedroom, 1 ½ storey house and the option for the buyer to live on-site, it has huge potential for people looking to invest in a flexible lifestyle business.

“The unrivalled sporting opportunities that Glencoe offers only add to the whole attractive package, with international standard skiing, snowboarding and mountain biking available at the two easily accessible mountain resorts nearby.”

The nearby Glencoe Village lies off the A82 – the main arterial road connecting the West Coast with Glasgow and the central belt and is just 17 miles from Fort William and 34 miles from the resort town of Oban.

Glencoe lies within the Lochaber area, which holds the coveted title ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’. It is a renowned mountain sports paradise, but with Riverbank Cottages also being close to the sea – sailing, fishing, diving and other water sports are also readily available.

For those who prefer a more relaxed form of exercise, national walking trails and cycling trails pass through Glencoe and are easily accessed via the local forests.

The village has its own primary school as does the nearby village of Ballachulish, while there is a newly built High School in Kinlochleven.

Viewings are strictly by appointment only and can be arranged through Bell Ingram’s Oban office on 01631 566122.
