About this property

  • Glenmore Farmhouse is a Category B Listed traditionally built farmhouse in need of full refurbishment but occupying a beautiful remote position in north Bute. Please note that the property is in a derelict and dangerous condition and therefore no floorplan is available.

    The property would formerly have had a hallway, living room, sitting room, three bedrooms on two floors with kitchen and bathroom and is surrounded by outbuildings and former sheep fold. The property offers a wonderful redevelopment opportunity.

What a wonderful combination: stunning remote island setting and ‘bare bones' of a Listed farmhouse - I think for many buyers this is a dream project.

Local information

  • Glenmore Farmhouse is positioned in a private remote setting to the north of the Isle of Bute with beautiful open aspects to the surrounding countryside.
  • An outstandingly beautiful and historic island, Bute is situated at the heart of the Firth of Clyde, off Scotland's verdant west coast. The island possesses areas of great scenic beauty and has been a popular holiday destination since Victorian times. Due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream, the island enjoys a particularly mild climate and it has become known as the ‘Madeira of Scotland'. The town has a population of approximately 5000 with an extensive range of amenities including primary and secondary schooling, shopping, a hospital, swimming pool, sports centre and golf course.
  • Regular ferries (Caledonian MacBrayne) operate from Rothesay to Wemyss Bay (35 mins), with Glasgow city centre and the international airport generally reachable in under an hour from Wemyss Bay. Wemyss Bay has a direct train link to the city centre. A second ferry from Rhubodach, in the north of the island, to Colintraive allows easy access to Argyll and the West Highlands.
  • The Isle of Bute offers wonderful hill and coastal walks, three golf clubs, sea fishing and trout fishing.
  • Owing to the island's superb location in the Firth of Clyde, with Arran to the south and marinas at Troon, Gourock, Largs, Inverkip and Rhu on the mainland, Bute is an extremely popular sailing destination.
