After the successful sale of Plot 1, Watermans are excited to bring to the market Plots 2 and 3 on Golf Course Road in Whiting Bay – two generous, fully serviced plots with fantastic sea views. The plots come with planning permission already in place for a three-bedroom detached bungalow each.
With self-building becoming increasingly popular and in particular high demand on the Isle of Arran, this is an exciting opportunity to purchase one of two fully serviced plots in Whiting Bay, in an elevated position with wonderful far-reaching views and within strolling distance of the village’s centre. The ground area for plot 2 extends to approximately 1719.225 m2 and plot 3 is approximately 1710.399m2 or thereby. The plots come with planning permission already in place for a three-bedroom detached bungalow each, both extending to 132.48m2. The dwellings on plots 1 and 3 are similar layout, with the dwelling on plot 2 to be opposite-hand (this is a condition of the planning permission). Bungalows are in high demand on the island at the moment, and these plots offer an ideal opportunity for a developer looking to build and sell, for those looking to live on the island or have a second/holiday home, or for the holiday rental market, with Arran a sought-after place for tourists and holidaymakers to visit.
The current planning permission is for a three-bedroom detached bungalow on each plot, comprising an entrance hall with built-in storage, a fantastic open-plan kitchen, living, and dining room, a principal bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, a family bathroom, and a utility/boot room. The homes will be accompanied by a large deck (accessible from the living area and one of the bedrooms), gardens, and private parking (TBC). The buyer can, of course, apply to North Ayrshire Council to request to change these plans, if they wish. A copy of the planning notice can be provided on request.
Whiting Bay is located on the south east corner of the island and overlooks the Firth of Clyde, with views to the very southern point of Scotland. The village provides a newsagent, post office, pharmacy, two general food stores, café/bar, restaurant, bistro, hardware store and a farm shop. There is a craft outlet and art gallery, as well as a picturesque 18-hole golf course. Primary schooling is available in the village and secondary schooling is found at the High School in Lamlash. The surrounding area provides some of Arran’s most scenic walks, not only along the shoreline, but also through the forest to Glenashdale Falls
The Isle of Arran, approximately 167 square miles in area, is sometimes referred to as “Scotland in miniature”, as it is divided into highland and lowland areas by the Highland Boundary Fault. The island is a popular destination for geologists, due to the substantial volcanic activity around 16 million years ago in the Tertiary period.
There are many stone circles and standing stones dating from Neolithic times, including those on Machrie Moor and the Giants Graves above Whiting Bay. Arran is approximately 60 miles in circumference and has some of the finest scenery in Scotland, with excellent walking, rambling and sea and trout fishing. Tourist attractions include Arran Aromatics, Arran Heritage Museum, Lochranza Distillery and Brodick Castle. There are seven golf courses on the island with these plots ideally positioned for easy access to Whiting Bay Golf Club.
