Rose Cottage West and Fairfield Cottage are two former estate worker’s cottages which boast all of their traditional, rural features – giving buyers the ideal starting point to create their dream holiday get-away or home.
Both properties, in the village of Skipness around 12 miles from Tarbert in Argyllshire, are in need of modernisation, giving perspective buyers the chance to develop the properties to their choosing.
With views across the sea to Arran and the surrounding countryside, both properties are on the market with Bell Ingram with Rose Cottage West on at offers over £90,000 and Fairfield Cottage at offers over £120,000.
Hugh Nicol of the firm’s Oban office said: “Rose Cottage West and Fairfield Cottage are fantastic properties with great potential for renovation.
“The town of Skipness itself is also extremely popular with holiday-makers and families looking to be part of a thriving community including a local primary school, shops, village hall and fantastic transport links.
“The larger of the two properties, Fairfield Cottage already has attractive wooden floors throughout the property with Edwardian cast iron fireplaces in both first floor bedrooms.
“In addition to the spacious rooms in each property, the surrounding gardens require very little upkeep but also have potential for any green-fingered buyers keen to get stuck in and transform it to their very own Eden.”
Fairfield Cottage, a detached stone and part rendered cottage, comes with a sitting room, two further reception rooms, two ground-floor bedrooms, a kitchen, utility room, one bathroom plus two first-floor bedrooms.
Rose Cottage West is a semi-detached cottage with two reception rooms, a kitchen, bathroom, two bedrooms on the first floor and ample storage.

The area enjoys opens access, meaning there is no restriction on where to walk or roam around the area with Sandy Bay, a short walk from the properties, providing beautiful sandy beaches ready to explore.
Mr Nicol said: “The location of these properties is ideal for holiday-makers or families keen to set up home in a very welcoming village.
“From the local village hall to endless wildlife to be explored, Skipness is perfect for anyone looking to escape hectic city life and settle down somewhere a bit closer to nature and truly immerse themselves in community life.”
