Recently-refurbished property has eleven letting rooms
ONE of the most westerly hotels in the UK has come onto the books of property agent Christie & Co.
Located on the island of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides, the Polochar Inn has 11 en-suite letting bedrooms, which are said to offer sea views.
The property, which is located at the southern tip of the island looking towards the Isle of Barra, also has public and lounge bars, both with open fireplaces, a 40-cover restaurant and a function room.
The inn offers an unrivalled way of life in a very special location.
Originally built as a ‘change house’ where travelers could wait for a ferry, the building is said to date from 1750 and still boasts some original features.
The current owners, who acquired the business eight years ago, are said to have completed an extensive refurbishment in recent years.
Property agent Christie & Co, which is handling the sale of the inn, said in a statement that the property is in “walk-in condition” and is currently trading at a “very profitable level”.
“The Outer Hebrides are well regarded as one of the last great wildernesses in the UK,” said the agent.
“Arguably, the Polochar Inn is one of the most westerly hotels in the UK, occupying a prime coastal trading location on the southern tip of the island and looking towards the isle of Barra.
“This wonderful opportunity represents a tremendous escape from the ‘rat race’ by offering an unrivalled way of life in a very special location.”
The Polochar Inn is on the market at offers over £520,000 for the freehold.
