Planning Permission, Listed Building Consent, and a Building Warrant are in place for the byre to be
demolished and replaced with a large extension with a glazed gable end to the west and bifold doors to the
garden. The Building Warrant is valid until October 2024. The Planning Permission and LBC were granted in
January 2020 but as a meaningful start was made on other works included in the permission (eg the septic
tank), and a notice of initiation of development submitted before January 2023, we understand the
permissions to remain valid in perpetuity even though no work has commenced on the extension.
The permissions also cover the installation of a wind turbine and a large solar pv installation mounted on
the steading roof

Ruined byre
Adjoined to the kitchen is an old byre with stone walls but no roof. The owners use this as a South and
West facing suntrap courtyard which gives spectacular views of Ben Lui and the Eas Anie waterfall and is a
lovely area to enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. There is also a rustic wood fired hot tub here. Planning
permission exists to demolish the byre completely and build an extension.

and drylined, and new flashings were installed round the chimneys. More recent upgrades include new
internal wall insulation and dry lining to the upper floor and new loft insulation.
A very short walk down the track from the garden leads to a beach area on the river. Close to this, the river
bends forming a deeper pool.
Half an hour walk up the glen from the house, there is a secluded waterfall with a pool and a shingle beach
The splendid 150m Eas Anie waterfall is just behind the goldmine and is popular with ice climbers in winter.

than one railway station!), each one serving a different branch of the West Highland Line, repeatedly voted
one of the best railway journeys in the world.
Tyndrum Lower (a scenic 2.5 mile walk from the house through a woodland track) is on the Oban branch

Full central heating was installed in March 2023 with a brand new gas combi boiler and radiators.
There is a large woodburning stove in the sitting room.
The cookstove in the kitchen also acts as a woodburning stove to provide warmth and ambience.
Most of the house’s electrical demand is met from powerbanks. These run the large fridge freezer, the
combi boiler, the internet router, TV and lights etc One of the powerbanks can run appliances up to 1500w
so has no trouble with the microwave, food mixer and other kitchen gadgets.
Solar panels recharge the powerbanks but they can also be charged quickly from the generator.
The generator is a big 10kw diesel model which runs the washing machine, tumble dryer and any high
wattage power tools.
A large Flogas propane tank in the garden serves the gas combi boiler and the lpg range cooker.

excellent pressure.
A new septic tank was installed in October 2022.
