THE site of a former railway station and steamer terminal at the east end of Helensburgh has been put up for sale.

The land at Craigendoran, extending to approximately seven acres, is being marketed by local estate agents Clyde Property, who describe it as an "exciting and geographically unique potential development site".

No asking price has been included in the brochure for the site, which states only that a price will be provided on application.

Alan Woodger, Clyde Property's area director, said: "We are inviting offers for the site on a 'price on application' basis simply because the value of the site will very much depend on what permission is eventually granted."

An adjacent site immediately to the west received planning permission earlier this year for a B&B and kayak centre, despite opposition from nearby residents and Helensburgh Community Council.

The Clyde Property brochure states: "The site is completely unique due to its stunning waterfront location, is totally level and commands stunning views to the south, west and east over the water across to Greenock.

"The location is perfect for access to Helensburgh’s amenities that include schooling, recreational facilities and shopping.

"The site would undoubtedly lend itself to residential development or alternatively a mix of residential/leisure/tourist development.

"The site is identified within the Helensburgh-Craigendoran 'Area for Action' which suggests that the council will support recreational/tourist development within the broader area."

The neighbouring site, which now has permission for a B&B and kayak centre, was previously put up for auction in Glasgow in 2016.

There were no bids for that site at the auction itself, but the land was subsequently bought by an anonymous purchaser.

The brochure notes that the site has not been the subject of any previous applications for planning permission, and that "therefore the layout, density and make up of any potential development will be subject to consultation with the planning department".

Craigendoran's pier, and adjacent railway terminal, was formerly a major hub for Clyde steamer services.

The pier was opened in 1882, and was the home base for the paddle steamer Waverley when it entered service in 1947, but the facility was closed in 1972 after years of decline.
