Located midway between Lochgilphead and Oban, on the shoreside of Loch Craignish, overlooking the small island of Eilan Mhic Chrion, this new development will provide 6 much needed affordable family homes for people looking to live and work in the Ardfern area. Allocations will be made through a Local Letting Initiative.
After acquiring the site from the Church of Scotland, the development has been taken forward with funding from Airdrie Savings Bank and the Rural Housing Development Fund of Argyll and Bute Council. Work will be carried out by Lochgilphead based contractors Macleod Construction and will provide employment for 21 tradesmen and 2 apprentices during the construction period.
