Lochgilphead sits at the head of Loch Gilp and is on the banks of the Crinan Canal, in the heart of Argyll, yet is only 80 miles from Glasgow International Airport. The town has a good range of local facilities including a hospital, modern high school, swimming pool and excellent shopping with many small independent retailers, together with Tesco and Co-op Supermarkets. The town is also the headquarters for Argyll & Bute Council. The area abounds in opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts, with hill walking, sailing and fishing just a few of the recreational sports that can be enjoyed close by.
The Old Manse was designed by the famous civil engineer, Thomas Telford, when in 1823 an Act of Parliament provided a grant for the building of 40 churches and manses and although upgraded and modernised, to include oil-fired central heating, a modern kitchen, bathroom and shower room, the property still remains a fine example of his work with particularly notable features being the fireplaces and the ceiling cornicing, Also worthy of note is the versatility of the layout, with a separate wing accommodating a sitting room/kitchen, shower room and the fourth bedroom. The property is pleasantly enhanced by the delightful secluded garden which all adds to the charm of this fine home of historical significance.
