Ten new homes have been completed at Barcaldine – winning praise from new residents.

The West Highland Housing Association development Inverbhraec
Cottages provides people and families with high-quality, affordable homes.

The development consists of six homes for social rent and four homes for sale under the New Supply Shared Equity scheme (NSSE) by the Scottish Government.

Resident Adrian Macleod said: ‘There’s a lot to get excited about with our new home.

‘The location is fantastic, the community has been welcoming and the house itself is perfect for our needs and has been flawlessly built.

‘We were incredibly fortunate to have this opportunity and I am looking forward to settling in, making new friends and exploring the surrounding area.’

Lesley McInnes, chief executive of West Highland Housing Association, added: ‘It is fantastic to hear these homes are already making a big difference to the lives of the local people moving into them.

‘We were very pleased to have been supported by the Scottish Government and Argyll and Bute Council to build these new homes.’

Work recently started at its 10-house development at Craighouse on the Isle of Jura.

It has also completed eight properties at Imeraval, Port Ellen, Islay, six of which were for sale under the Scottish Government’s New Supply Shared Equity scheme.
