Sitting above the beach at Dunnet Bay, which is described as a “fantastic sweeping arc of white sand” extending for two miles, the hotel has 12 “comfortably furnished” letting bedrooms, comprising three family rooms, five double rooms, two twin rooms and two single rooms.

The Northern Sands Hotel has “excellent” public areas, including an “attractively-furnished” function room, which can accommodate between 100 and 140 guests; a public bar and games room; and a lounge bar and dining area, which seats 32 guests and is described as having a “wonderful ambience”.

The hotel is open year-round with slightly restricted trading hours in the winter season; it’s described as a “strong business” producing “sound turnover and excellent profits”.

Jackie MacGregor of ASG Commercial said the property is “attractively decorated and furnished throughout”, adding that the vendors have “maintained all aspects of the property in good order with frequent upgrades in facilities and services”.

“The location of Northern Sands is hugely attractive offering great opportunities to any new proprietor,” said MacGregor.

Offers over £385,000 are being sought for the freehold.
