A croft, a cottage and a Victorian villa - Scotland

It's been a while so, to make up for my tardiness,  here's a bumper pack of three properties - all Scotland, all with a bit of space around them.
First up is this farmhouse and steading of around a quarter of an acre.
There's a big farmhouse kitchen, sitting room, hall and scullery downstairs; three bedrooms, bathroom and boxroom upstairs
Outside are attached, stonebuilt stables and outbuildings, wrapped around a courtyard area:

Great views across Glendaruel, on the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll, it's in Colintraive - a 30 minute drive from Dunnon, the nearest town.
Auchategan Croft failed to sell at auction on May 1st, via Wilson's, with a guide price of £100k. Details here.
A smaller house but more land is Doularg Cottage, at Barr, in Ayrshire - below.

The one-room cottage needs total renovation, but comes with 1.5 acres of land in the pretty Stinchar Valley. There is planning permission in place to renovate and extend the property into a two-bedroom, single storey home with garage.
It's sold with the steel storage container you can see in the above picture and a 30-foot static caravan with wood-burning stove - just seen in pic below:

Doularg cottae is around a mile from the village of Barr and about nine miles from the town of Girvan.
It's up for sale at offers around £79k, through S1 Homes, details here
If those two are a touch too remote for you, how about this stone-built, four-bedroom villa, in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire:

There's not a lot of information about it, other than that it needs a fair bit of renovation, but it's an impressive looking house with a large garden, in the Mill Road area of the town (ML3 8AA)

Upstairs are four big bedrooms and a bathroom. Downstairs are two reception rooms, dining kitchen and cloakroom, and below that a one-bed, self-contained basement flat.
It's on the market through Clyde Property at offers over £159,950. Details here.
