Go for green in Inverness-shire

The Glenuig’s lounge offers sea views

A HISTORIC Highland inn which is described as an “exemplar green tourism business” is up for sale.

The Glenuig Inn, in the Inverness-shire hamlet of Lochailort, is a former drovers’ inn which has been transformed into an environmentally-sustainable business over the past decade by current owner Steve Macfarlane. It operates with minimum waste, having recently removed all single-use plastic from the business, and zero food waste.

Set amid “spectacular coastal scenery”, the property comprises a bar, restaurant, lounge with sea views, six recently-upgraded bedrooms and a bunkhouse; there are also two staff flats and planning permission for a further building to join two sections of the property.

Alistair Letham, of Colliers International, which is marketing the property at offers over £895,000, said Glenuig “enjoys a beautiful, tranquil location without actually being too remote”.

“Following the current owner’s successful efforts to establish Glenuig Inn as a renowned green destination, it will certainly appeal to hoteliers and entrepreneurs interested in continuing this legacy, which makes sound business as well as environmental sense,” he said.
