Lot 6 – Tayinloan Development Site
The estate owns the Tayinloan Inn, Tayinloan Stores and former petrol station, all of which are now derelict. The hotel has been closed for over 10 years, as has the petrol station, although the post office stores were functional until February 2020.
The large site on which the hotel and stores sit provides the purchaser with a significant development opportunity, be it residential or commercial, while the site of the old petrol station could make an excellent site for a residential dwelling, subject to planning consents.
Lying on the western edge of The Kintyre Peninsula, Killean Estate and the properties therein boast incredible views over the islands of Cara, Gigha, Islay and Jura. The Kintyre Peninsula itself is popular with tourist and has plenty of attractions to offer including great sea fishing and sailing. The village of Tayinloan, just a mile to the north of the estate, is where the ferry docks for visitors to the Isle of Gigha and hosts the derelict former Tayinloan Inn and the Tayinloan stores on the east side of the village.
The stunning coast road down the peninsula leads through the estate. Campbeltown is less than 20 miles to the south and is one of the largest towns in Argyll, often popular with tourists exploring the peninsula. There are three distilleries in the town, which also has its own airfield. Just south of Campbeltown is the popular tourist village of Machrihanish which boasts a famous links golf course and stunning beaches.
North of the estate, the road leads through a number of famous Argyll towns; Tarbert has a stunning marina and ferry link over to the Kyles of Bute. Further north, Lochgilphead, Oban and Inverary have a number of attractions and great opportunities for sailing and sight-seeing. The main road to Glasgow is a spectacular drive through the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.
