Isle of Seil business said to benefit from mainland link
AN 18th century inn on the west coast Isle of Seil is on the market after 35 years under the same family ownership.
Located next to the Clachan Bridge, which links Seil to the mainland and is known as the ‘bridge over the Atlantic’, the Tigh an Truish Inn comprises bar and restaurant areas and two self-catering holiday apartments.
The grade C-listed building also includes a commercial kitchen, wet and dry stores, an office, owner’s accommodation and private car parking.
The inn is set in 1.8 acres and has a beer garden with views towards Clachan Sound; the grounds are said to offer potential to create additional accommodation.
The Tigh an Truish Inn attracts tourists and locals.
Gregor King, consultant at property agency Bell Ingram, which is handling the sale, said the Tigh an Truish Inn trades all year round and attracts a mix of locals and tourists; the self-catering accommodation is said to enjoy good levels of occupancy during the tourism season.
“Opportunities to acquire such an established business in a proven location are rare indeed,” said King.
“This is a hospitality business that enjoys great custom from its proximity to the ‘Bridge over the Atlantic’ – a feature that has attracted tourists and locals alike to the premises for many years.
“The sale offers the opportunity to acquire a ‘walk-in’ hospitality business, but with significant scope to expand and further develop the commercial operation.”
Offers over £375,000 are sought for the Tigh an Truish Inn.
