A CHUNK of Argyll hill ground with its own a small loch has just gone on the market through Galbraith.

Located in an elevated position between Ardrishaig and Lochgilphead, Brackley Farm boasts spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and extends to about 349 acres in total.

Harry Graham, who is handling the sale on behalf of Galbraith, said: “The land at Brackley Farm is situated in an idyllic location, with beautiful vistas in all directions.

“The land includes a small hill loch known as the Still Loch which has been fished for trout historically and the land could be converted to some form of forestry use subject to obtaining the necessary planting consents. The property presents an excellent opportunity to acquire a productive block of hill ground in a wonderful part of rural Scotland, with great amenity value.”

The land at Brackley Farm is situated to the west of Loch Gilp, approximately one mile from Ardrishaig and about 1.5 miles south west of Lochgilphead. The land has been classified as Grade 6.3 by the James Hutton Institute and surrounds the Kilduskland Reservoir which serves Ardrishaig.

The land rises from 212m above sea level to 295m and is situated in a single block between two existing forestry plantations, and is bound to the north by Cruach Breacain which rises to 360m. It is accessed directly from a private forestry track that leads south west from the A83.

This area is a popular field sports destination with a number of estates in the vicinity offering driven and walked-up game shooting. It is also a region popular with hill walkers and cyclists, with a variety of tracks to suit all levels of fitness.

Galbraith is looking for offers over £225,000.
