The 7 year project completed in 5 phases has a mixture of flats, semi-detached, detachedand terraced houses to meet a variety of different needs, including large mainstream family accommodation and housing for special needs and amenity housing.

The development was scheduled to be completed at the end of March this year but has been delayed until now due to lockdown related to Covid 19.

“This has been ACHA’s biggest new build development in Oban and it adds to our housing stock in the town in a way which meets a variety of different needs.”
