Chance to reach for the Skye

Island hotel on the edge of Loch Snizort for sale

• The hotel owns fishing rights on a stretch of the River Snizort and netting rights for the loch.

A VICTORIAN country house hotel set in 23 acres on the Isle of Skye has come onto the market.

Located on the edge of Loch Snizort near Portree, Skeabost Country House Hotel has 14 letting bedrooms, an 80-cover conservatory restaurant, bistro cafe, two lounges and two bars; there’s also a billiards room.

The property’s grounds are home to a nine-hole golf course.

The property also offers staff accommodation, including a separate bungalow and buildings to the rear of the property, which are said to offer scope for development.
The hotel’s 23-acre grounds are home to one of two golf courses on the Isle of Skye; the course at the hotel has nine holes and 14 tees, and is said to provide plenty of variation for an 18-hole game.
The business also owns fishing rights on an eight-mile stretch of the River Snizort and netting rights on Loch Snizort.
Alistair Letham of Colliers International, the firm handling the sale, said: “The property is everything that you would expect of a Scottish Victorian country house hotel, built in the late 19th century, and still exudes the graciousness of Victorian splendour, along with a relaxing appeal.
“Owned by London-based private investors since 2006, Skeabost has been run entirely under management in the intervening period and has enjoyed excellent turnover.
“The new owner has the opportunity to create a truly high quality leisure destination utilising fully not only what is already on offer with Skeabost but also the delights of the Isle of Skye.”
Colliers International is inviting offers around £650,000.
