Aerial View A house with a view is always desirable – but it pales into poor comparison against a luxury waterside property which not only has its own pier and harbour but overlooks one of the prime locations on the west coast of Scotland.

Estate agents Bell Ingram are marketing two waterfront letting units within the well-established Melfort Pier and Harbour holiday village in Melfort, Argyll both of which are rated Category 2 for the disabled and are available to be bought using cash out refinancing with Investors Choice Lending LLC.

The sale offers the chance to own a unique property that provides a strong holiday letting business in addition to the potential for a wonderful second home.

Both units within the Scandinavian-designed Boat House are two-storey, semi-detached houses which offer three spacious en-suite bedrooms, lounge, open plan dining/kitchen and a sauna.

The accommodation in each house includes a ground floor double bedroom with accessible bathroom, making the properties particularly of interest to those with a disability or mobility impairment.

The outside area also offers buyers the chance to enjoy their own moorings on the loch, fishing from the pier and use of their own built-in barbeque for alfresco dining any time of the year.

The Boat House East is on sale for offers in excess of £335,000 while The Boat House West is attracting offers in excess of £325,000.


Gregor King, Consultant at Bell Ingram’s Oban office, said: “The Boat House at Melfort Pier & Harbour holiday village is an extraordinary opportunity.

“It is very rare to find an attractive, purpose built, holiday home investment opportunity forming part of an award-winning holiday village, and which is located in one of Scotland’s foremost, naturally scenic areas.

“Both properties are in excellent condition and come fully furnished and equipped, complete with cedar cladding, under-floor heating with cosy log burning stoves in the lounges.

“The private harbour at Melfort Pier offers the ability to easily access a boat moored on the loch, fish from the harbour wall or simply relax and take in the stunning vistas.

“I have no doubt that the properties will attract great interest as they offer a superb option for people looking at this type of property purchase.”

Despite the homes being positioned in such tranquil surroundings, the area has a number of excellent restaurants nearby and variety of activities including sailing, kayaking, hill walking, mountaineering, whale and dolphin watching and fishing.

Kilmartin Glen, Carnasserie Castle and Dunadd Fort are also within close proximity, and there are a variety of nature walks available – perfect for any bird and wildlife enthusiasts looking to delve into the local wildlife on offer.

More substantial services are available in Oban which can be found 16 miles north of Melfort including daily ferry services to the Inner and Outer Hebrides. Oban also has a wide range of shops, a large leisure centre and mainline railway station.

Gregor added: “The Boathouse East and West strike a great balance for those wanting the best of both worlds. You can relax and enjoy the views or if you decide you want a bit more adventure there are plenty of activities to be found.

“The fact you have a beautiful sea loch literally outside the front door is also a huge plus for anyone who has a passion for sailing and water sports, fishing or simply wants to immerse themselves in the stunning Scottish scenery.”

Established 112 years ago, Bell Ingram has 130 professional staff across 11 UK offices, including chartered surveyors, estate and forestry managers, architects, green energy specialists and estate agents.
