Take a loch at Highland hotels

Agent seeking buyers for two Loch Carron-side businesses

NEW owners are being sought for two Highland hotels at opposite ends of Loch Carron.

The Plockton Hotel and the Strathcarron Hotel are both on the books of property agent Bruce & Co.
Located in the village where BBC TV series Hamish Macbeth was filmed, the Plockton Hotel has been run by the same family since 1991 and has been put up for sale due to retirement.
Overlooking Loch Carron, the hotel has 11 letting bedrooms, a 40-cover dining room and a lounge bar.
An outdoor seating area at the front offers views of the loch, while the garden at the rear overlooks Plockton Bay.
Bruce & Co, which is marketing the property with a price tag of offers over £1.3 million, said the owners would consider selling their three-bedroom home to interested parties by separate negotiation.
The property firm’s sales negotiator, Lewis Murphy, said the Plockton Hotel trades throughout the year from a good mix of accommodation, food and wet sales.
“The village itself has long been busy as a magnet for tourists, artists and visiting yachtsmen and the hotel has visitors from all over the world,” he said.
Further north on the loch, the agent is also marketing the Strathcarron Hotel with a price tag of offers over £499,995.
Described as a country-style bar, restaurant and hotel, the Strathcarron has 11 en suite letting rooms, a lounge bar, a separate games room and a 44-cover restaurant.
“Located on the popular A890 tourist route, the business enjoys a high volume of passing trade and has acquired an excellent rating on Trip Advisor from guests’ overwhelming compliments,” said Murphy.
