Fantastic development opportunity in a truly stunning, and very rarely available, location. The new owner of ‘The Old Pierhead’ will be purchasing a stone building complete with new roof, generous plot of land, the pierhead and a section of foreshore. Further, full planning permission has been granted for a single storey dwelling with conservatory which makes this project even more appealing. Whether this purchase will be for an investment, full-time residence, holiday home or holiday let it is sure to be envied far and wide.
The village of Toward is approximately 7 miles along the coastal road from Dunoon, Cowal’s capital town and offers lovely views of Cumbrae and Bute with Arran in the distance. In the Dunoon area there are two supermarkets, local shops and hairdressers aplenty, several cafes restaurants and take-aways, offering a range to suit all tastes and budgets, plenty of pubs, two leisure centres, numerous golf, bowling, tennis and sailing clubs, a two-screen cinema, a local museum and a concert venue. There are also ample schools, churches, medical surgeries, dentists, a hospital and a veterinary practice. In addition, there are two ferry links to Gourock with rail and coach links meaning that Glasgow city centre is little more than an hour away, with Braehead Shopping Centre and Greenock even closer.
From Dunoon, take the A815 through Innellan to the village of Toward. Shortly after you enter Toward you reach a point where the road veers to the right but there is separate road to the left. Take the road to the left and continue towards the lighthouse; the plot is just before the lighthouse.
The plot is a combination of the stone building, good sized flat lawned area bound by a lovely stone wall and stunning wrought iron gates, the pierhead and shorefront.

Full PP has been granted for a single storey, one bedroom cottage with a conservatory.
Planning Permission Reference: 15 / 03330 / PP
Total Area: 750m2
A septic tank has recently been installed adjacent to the plot and it is believed that there would be no significant problems connecting to the new property.
The plot is located on a tranquil spot next to the shore, lighthouse and many other walking, cycling and running opportunities. Toward has a small village primary school, as does Innellan which is approximately two miles away. Innellan has a church, local shop / post office and two pubs / hotels with restaurants, a 9-hole golf course, tennis and bowling cubs and pony trekking. Dunoon, as previously stated is approximately 7 miles away and has all the amenities that you would expect from a good sized town.
