Lot 2 - Invervegain Farmhouse c. 568 acres
Constructed of stone under a slate roof, Invervegain Farmhouse occupies a particularly majestic position on the north side of the Invervegain Burn. The southerly view down Loch Striven to Bute is one of the best of all of the houses on the estate.
Originally built as a farmhouse with adjoining steading forming a U-shaped range of buildings, the house was extensively modernised in the 1990s with part of the adjoining steading being converted as a large games room.
The accommodation is laid out over two storeys and includes two reception rooms, kitchen, four bedrooms and two bathrooms in addition to the large games room.
The undeveloped elevation of this range includes two former stables providing outbuildings/general storage space. Adjoined by double doors, the outbuildings provide access to a barn that is currently used for horse tack and boat storage.
Garden and Grounds
There is a spacious enclosed parking area and garden with stunning views, together with a small paddock to the rear of the outbuildings, which has previously been used to graze horses.
Included with this lot is about 460 acres of hill ground, also on the edge of the forestry, providing the opportunity for mixed sportings. A key feature of this land is about 1400 metres of shoreline frontage to Loch Striven.
This property has 567 acres of land.
Glenstriven Estate occupies magical setting on the western side of the Cowal Peninsula overlooking Loch Striven. The southerly and westerly views from the estate are magnificent and include the Islands of Bute and Cumbrae, together with the distinctive peak of Goat Fell and the mountains of Arran.
Access to the estate is via a minor public road which leads for about 15 miles from Dunoon through the villages of Innellan and Toward. The village of Innellan has a Post Office, convenience store and two pub/restaurants. A wider range of services is provided in Dunoon, with a good selection of shops, professional services, a hospital with A&E and secondary school with sports and community leisure facilities. Dunoon provides two ferry links across the Clyde estuary to Gourock. The journey time by ferry is circa 20 minutes and ferries leave at 20-minute intervals during the day.
The closest airport with scheduled domestic and international flights is at Glasgow International Airport (41 miles) which can be reached in around 1½ hours under normal traffic conditions. Gourock also has a railway station with frequent services to Paisley (for Glasgow airport) and Glasgow city centre. Glasgow airport also has a heliport with helicopters available for charter. The journey time to Glenstriven by helicopter is about 15 minutes.
With its many islands, peninsulas and sea lochs, Argyll has thousands of miles of coastline and, as such, the sea is a feature of the working life and leisure time of its inhabitants.
The quality of sailing off the Argyll coast and Inner Hebrides is of world renown. In addition to the two deep-water moorings owned by the vendors, there are several well-established commercial marinas within close range of Glenstriven at Dunoon, Rothesay, Port Bannatyne, Inverkip and Portavadie.
In terms of land-based activities, there are golf courses at Innellan (9 holes) and Dunoon (18 holes). Further afield there are internationally renowned golf courses at Loch Lomond and on the Ayrshire coast at Royal Troon, Trump Turnberry and Prestwick. The vendors are keen golfers and have, on several occasions, enjoyed day trips to the Ayrshire courses via a fixed hull (inboard) RIB. The journey time to Turnberry (the southernmost of the courses) is about 1½ hours in calm sea conditions.
With many islands to explore, mountains to climb, lochs to fish, pubs and restaurants to dine at throughout Argyll, there is a fantastically diverse range of activities within a drive of an hour or so of Glenstriven.
