Ex Scottish Water reservoir

Wonderful opportunity to acquire Kames Reservoir, an ex Scottish Water reservoir which has been redundant for around 50 years and is in just under (approximately) two acres of land. Easily accessible by vehicle and close to a road, Kames Reservoir offers a range of potential uses subject to the relevant consents. The reservoir is set in an attractive rural location in Kames, just south of Tighnabruaich, close to the Kyles of Bute Golf Club, and from the plot there are spectacular views over the Kyles of Bute. Kames is a small village on the Cowal peninsula on the western arm of the Kyles of Bute in Argyll and Bute. The pretty village of Kames sits just to the south of Tighnabruaich and has its own hotel, bistro, post office and shop which easily caters for everyday needs and requirements. The centre of Tighnabruaich is about 1.5 miles to the north and is a well-known sheltered anchorage with moorings, that are always lively with the coming and going of boating and yachting craft.




The village centre offers local amenities and further shops that cater for everyday needs and requirements. A bus service runs from Kames via Tighnabruaich to both Rothesay and Dunoon. Portavadie Marina is 4.2 miles away and has in recent years seen significant investment in creating a modern state of the art Marina infrastructure, with associated chandlery, restaurant, accommodation and spa facilities. Tarbert is 8.9 miles to the west and there is a ferry service from Portavadie direct to Tarbert. The city of Glasgow is 55 miles distant and has numerous retail districts and all the higher educational, cultural and leisure services, normally associated with a major international centre.
