  • An outstanding opportunity to own a stunningly beautiful coastal property located on the west coast of Argyll.
  • Overlooking Loch Stornoway Bay with a mile of coastline, its own beach and an uninterrupted panoramic view of the islands of Gigha, Islay and Jura.
  • Opportunity to establish native woodland and create a very manageable coastal estate.
  • Sporting rights included.


Loch Stornoway Hill and its woodland is situated in a stunning coastal position on the Knapdale peninsula overlooking Loch Stornoway and its idyllic sandy bay. The land itself has a highly attractive mix of open hill grazing land and native Oak and Birch woodland with an uninterrupted panoramic view across to the islands of Gigha, Islay and Jura to the west and to the south along the west coast of the Kintyre peninsula.

Few opportunities like this come to the market where you can own a secluded coastal property on the Scottish mainland with direct access to a public road. Kilberry Inn and its popular restaurant is just a 5 minute drive to the north and the picturesque village of Tarbert, next to Loch Fyne, is just a 30 minute drive to the east. Providing local Shops, Hotels, Restaurants and a Marina for year round mooring. The city of Glasgow and its international airport is a 3 hour drive from the property.

If travelling by car the nearest Postcode is PA29 6YD (Kilberry Farm) and Loch Stornoway Hill can be found to the south of Kilberry, as shown on the location and sale plans.


The land extends over an area of 116.00 hectares or 286.63 acres rising from the rugged shoreline of Loch Stornoway to its northern boundary at 82 metres above sea level with a mile of coastline and a secluded sandy Beach. Native Atlantic Sessile Oak and Birch woodland covers approximately 16.00 hectares/39.53 acres of the eastern section of the land, which is of a type unique to the west coast.

This is thriving with natural regeneration taking place on the adjacent areas of hill ground and could be extended with a combination of natural regeneration and tree planting. Creating what could be a highly diverse mosaic of native woodland and meandering glades with breath taking views down to the shoreline and across the bay.

There is also the potential to continue to manage the land with livestock grazing or a combination to create a truly natural biodiverse habitat. Attractive grants are also available to encourage this kind of management. Along with the potential for the woodland to lock up carbon and potentially generate income from the sale of carbon units if the woodland is extended.

Where the land drops down the slope to the bay, there is the ruin of an old sheiling (dwelling) located in a secluded position looking across to a sandy beach on the shoreline. Ideally situated for setting off on coastal adventures or to your Boat moored in the bay. The land that runs west to the point is fertile for this area with a range of grassland species and rises up to provide the most stunning panoramic view from the hilltop of Cnoc a’ Chrochair. From here there is an uninterrupted view out to the west to watch the sun set over the islands of Islay and Jura.
