Skye’s the limit for guest house

Island outlet offers new owner a ‘lifestyle’ business

A guest house on the Isle of Skye offers a new owner the chance to step into an established accommodation business.

Roskhill Guest House, a former croft dating back to 1890, was adapted into an accommodation business by its current owners.

The property, said to be in a “tranquil setting” just south of Dunvegan and close to Loch Bracadale in the north west of the island, comprises “a spacious cottage-style dining room” which seats ten people, a guest lounge and five en suite guest bedrooms.

The sale also includes an adjoining three-bedroom property which is currently used as owner’s accommodation.

Roskhill Guest House, described as a “renowned guest house” on the island, is being sold with 0.27 acres of land which includes a well-maintained garden as well as private and residents’ parking.

The business is said to have had a net turnover of circa £76,000 for the year ending March 2015. It has a four star rating from VisitScotland and listings in several tourism guides.

Offers over £450,000 are sought for the freehold interest.

The business is being marketed by the Inverness office of property firm Strutt & Parker.

A spokeswoman for the company said: “The current owners have upgraded the property over the past few years to create a fantastic lifestyle business [which] is presented to an excellent standard both internally and externally.”
