Isle of Arran’s Altachorvie House, a detached property set in its own grounds with panoramic views over Lamlash Bay, the Firth of Clyde and the Holy Isle, has been put on the market. Selling agents Colliers International is inviting offers around £450,000 for the former guest house, which is centrally located in Lamlash, Arran’s largest village.

The island, often referred to as ‘Scotland in miniature’ due to its own highland and lowland areas, is a popular destination with walkers, golfers and visitors seeking peace and tranquillity. Neighbouring Holy Isle is today owned by the Samye Ling Buddhist Community but its faith connections go back a long way, with Celtic monk Saint Molaise said to have inhabited a cave on the island.

H F Holidays, the current owner and the UKs largest walking and activity hotel expert, has featured Altachorvie House as part of its programme for many years but recently reviewed its future requirements.

The south-facing property features 13 letting bedrooms, bar, lounge, dining room and function/meeting room in the main house, which is further supplemented by 25 garden ‘chalet’ bedrooms, a six-room staff house, in addition to a one-bedroom manager’s flat. Its  front/southerly half, part of the 2.4 acres private grounds, is laid out to lawns and borders, featuring palm trees and surrounded by mature woodland.

Alistair Letham, a director with selling agents Colliers International, commented: “Altachorvie House is in a superb location on this beautiful and perennially popular Isle of Arran.  The availability of Altachorvie House offers an excellent opportunity to purchase a well-maintained property and to create and develop a new leisure destination business.”
