About this property

  • Scone Cottage is a stunning contemporary villa built in 2009 in partnership with Fjordhus. It was carefully designed to take full advantage of its magnificent aspects over the Sound of Jura towards Mull with the islands of Shuna, Luing and Scarba. The house is built on two storeys under a tiled roof with a balcony on the first floor maximising the views over the landscaped gardens and beyond to the Sound of Jura. The house design is characterised by the dominant use of glass and wood, creating an open, airy Scandinavian feel, with the outdoors ever present through the generous windows, whatever the weather.

    The main entrance to Scone Cottage is via the door to the side of the property leading to a well proportioned reception hallway with a downstairs shower room off with luxury suite. The double height sun room has French doors to the side and fantastic views to both the front and rear. There is an exceptionally spacious open plan kitchen / dining room with a wide range of white bespoke base and wall mounted units with marble worktops, integrated appliances and island unit. Off the kitchen there is a fitted utility room and integral one and a half sized garage. To the rear of the ground floor there are two double sized bedrooms. The first floor accommodation has a bright open plan sitting room with sliding doors leading to the wonderful glass fronted balcony from which the truly breathtaking outlook can be enjoyed. The master bedroom is also on the first floor with a sleek, contemporary en suite four piece bathroom with Jacuzzi bath off and large walk in wardrobe. The accommodation is completed by a substantial studio / bedroom which could be utilised for a wide variety of purposes.

    The gardens have been landscaped by the current owners with a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs with steps leading to the foot of the garden.

Local information

  • Scone Cottage sits in a stunning elevated position, high above Craobh Haven Marina with spectacular open aspects over the sound of Jura and towards Mull.
  • Craobh Haven offers a village shop, a chandlery, an excellent bar and restaurant and has some of the best marina facilities in the country. The district is well served by a fine range of local country pubs, restaurants and hotels, all of which usually sell local seafood and seasonal produce. Primary schooling can be found in Ardfern approximately 2 miles away with secondary schools in Lochgilphead and Oban.
  • Oban, around 22 miles north, offers a more extensive range of services including shopping, schools at both primary and secondary levels, swimming pool and cinema. There is a ferry terminal with daily services to a range of islands including Mull and the Outer Hebrides and a mainline railway station with connections to Glasgow. Lochgilphead is about 17 miles south and there is a regular bus service between the two towns.
  • Arduaine Garden (a National Trust garden), about 3 miles to the north of Craobh Haven, is famous in the district, originally conceived by J. Arthur Campbell who also built the award winning Loch Melfort Hotel. The gardens are extensive but retain the intimacy of a private garden. The waters off the west coast of Scotland are famed for challenging sailing and stunning scenery. The sheltered marina at Craobh Haven is well known among the sailing community and has always drawn yachts and boating craft to its pretty and safe anchorage. The surrounding countryside provides an abundance of outdoor and sporting activities including hill walking and mountain biking. Oban, Lochgilphead and Ardfern provide sea fishing, wildlife boat trips plus sailing and ferry access to the west coast islands.
