A VILLAGE inn that’s said to play an “integral role” in the local community has come onto the books of property agent Bruce & Co.

The Sutherland Inn in the village of Brora on the north east coast of Scotland has been run by the current owner since 2005 and has been put on the market to allow them to pursue other business interests.
Located in Fountain Square, the inn has seven en suite letting bedrooms, an 80-cover restaurant, a lounge bar, 45-cover dining room and a breakfast room, which can seat 20.
The property also offers four-bedroom owner’s accommodation and a self-contained public bar, which is said to be popular with locals.
Bruce & Co’s Jayne Adamson, who is handling the sale, said the inn trades year-round on a mix of accommodation, food and wet sales.
“The Sutherland Inn offers over 350 whiskies on sale and is part of the Scotch Whisky Embassy [initiative] making it extremely popular with whisky enthusiasts, who regularly stay at the hotel,” she said.
“The inn also plays an integral role in the local community as many locals use it for meetings and dinners, providing an excellent opportunity for interested buyers to walk into a popular business that has established itself both locally and regionally.”
Offers over £30,000 are sought for the leasehold.
