Room to develop Dunoon business

‘Substantial’ west coast hotel on the market

Auchencraig House in Dunoon, which is currently unoccupied, has 17 bedrooms at present

LICENSEES looking to make their own mark on a property might be interested in a Dunoon hotel which is up for sale.

Auchencraig House is currently unoccupied, and is said to offer prospective operators “an unparalleled opportunity” to create a boutique hotel or guest house.

Situated in a 0.75-acre plot on the headland of the Cowal peninsula, the hotel’s position offers “tremendous views” over the Clyde Estuary and beyond.

The sale provides an opportunity to create any business which suits the buyer.

The Victorian property has retained many of its original features; it currently comprises 17 bedrooms, three large public rooms, two lounge rooms, and one ‘grand’ room, which offers views of the Firth of Clyde and surrounding countryside.

While there is currently no owner’s accommodation, there is said to be scope to include this as part of the redevelopment of the property.

Josh Hill, business agent at Christie & Co, which is marketing the freehold of Auchencraig House at offers over £295,000, said: “As the property is currently unoccupied it provides an unparalleled opportunity to create any business which suits the buyer, with huge potential to be a boutique hotel or fantastic guest house.

“This property is ideally suited for an experienced developer or an owner/operator and with the right development this property would make a fantastic business.”
