A HIGHLAND hotel with a historic edge has come onto the market.

In addition to being a former coaching inn that dates back to the 1700s, the Spean Bridge Hotel, near Fort William, is also home to a commando museum, commemorating the soldiers who trained in the surrounding hills and at nearby Achnacarry during the Second World War.

The hotel is trading exceptionally well and offers potential for further expansion.

Trading throughout the year, the hotel comprises 20 en suite letting bedrooms and 12 self-contained chalets at the rear of the property.
Catering facilities at the hotel include a 40-cover restaurant and a 60-cover lounge bar, which is also accessible from a separate entrance in the rear car park.
The property also includes a two-bedroom owner’s apartment and accommodation for six staff.
It has been placed on the market to allow the current owner, who has had the business since 2002, to retire.
Safa Sultan of Bruce & Co, who is handling the sale, said the hotel offers scope for further expansion.
“The sale of Spean Bridge Hotel offers a rare opportunity to purchase a high quality, beautifully presented Highland business,” said Sultan.
“The hotel is currently trading exceptionally well and provides potential for further expansion.”

The commando museum commemorates the soldiers who trained nearby.

“It benefits from its highly desirable location as one of the Highlands’ finest small hotels with a reputation for excellence.”
The Spean Bridge Hotel has been placed on the market at offers over £750,000 for the heritable property, fixtures, fittings and goodwill.
