Duncan Barrie, who is handling the sale of Colachla for Galbraith, said: “Colachla is a prime location for a smallholding or rural home.

"Tighnabruich is a charming village, popular with holidaymakers and sailing enthusiasts. The scenery all along the Kyles of Bute is spectacular.

"The farmland at Colachla is currently all down to pasture but historically has been used for fodder production in conjunction with a larger farming enterprise.

"The land is enclosed by mixed broadleaved woodlands providing a colourful backdrop to the property.
