OPERATORS whose dream is to own and operate an island business may be interested in SeaSalt, in Port Ellen on Islay.

Situated near the ferry terminal and on the route to the Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg distilleries, SeaSalt is also said to be well-located for visits to Diageo’s Port Ellen Maltings, as well as walks on the Oa and Kilnaughton Bay.

Operated all year-round, the 28-cover restaurant and takeaway was redeveloped and modernised in 2015 for use as a licensed restaurant with commercial kitchen and bar.

Islay, the most southerly island of the Inner Hebrides, is home to a resident population of 3300 and attracts up to 75,000 visitors each year, according to DM Hall, which is marketing the business at offers over £200,000.
