Tigh Cladach is a lower villa with truly beautiful sea views from its shore-side location in the sought after village of Strone. The property benefits by having three bedrooms, sitting room with dual aspect, dining kitchen with larder, shower room and utility room / workshop and, externally, private front and back gardens. The roof to the villa was replaced approximately one year ago, at considerable cost. Although in need of a degree of modernisation this property would make an ideal family, retirement or holiday home given its stunning location and close proximity to local amenities.
The picturesque village of Strone is surrounded by natural beauty with stunning views of the Holy Loch, Loch Long and the Firth of Clyde down to the Isle of Arran. The area, which is approximately eight miles from Dunoon and on the edge of Scotland’s First National Park, is well served with a post office / mini market, village pub, golf and bowling clubs, medical centre, churches and a fantastic primary school which has been awarded the Green Flag. The popular, and ever expanding, Holy Loch Marina is just a few minutes’ drive away at the other side of the loch.
There is also a regular bus service to Dunoon making the supermarkets, shops, hairdressers, eateries, pubs, sports and sailing clubs and cinema etc. easily accessible. 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 Glasgow Airport, Braehead Shopping Centre and Greenock even closer.

The communal back garden has a couple of lawned areas including a drying green, seating areas plus several stone outhouses. To the rear, the view of the surrounding trees is breath-taking.
