Island business opportunity


The Stronsay Hotel has four en suite letting rooms and owner’s accommodation.

PROPERTY buyers tempted to ‘get away from it all’ might be interested in the Stronsay Hotel on the Orkney island of the same name

The Stronsay, which is the only hotel on the island, has four en suite letting bedrooms, a bar and dining room. It also comes with a bothy that’s said to be ripe for conversion, and owner’s accommodation.
The Island of Stronsay has a population of 350 and is reached by ferry from ‘mainland’ Orkney or a scheduled flight, which takes just ten minutes. Gordon Mair, a director of selling agent Cornerstone, said the hotel trades all year round. “This is a rare opportunity for anyone wishing to live a quiet island life and yet have a successful and profitable business,” he said. “Sometimes we can offer opportunities such as a hotel which is the only one in the village but this is one of the first times we have ever been able to offer a hotel being the only one on an island. Income is generated from both locals and tourists and it is trading profitably.” The hotel is on the market at £245,000 freehold.
