Who will sail into Kyleakin?

Chance to take on B&B business in picturesque setting

The White Heather Hotel is located in the village of Kyleakin and has seven letting bedrooms

A HOTEL on the Isle of Skye which offers uninterrupted views of the surrounding loch, mountains, and Castle Moil has come on to the books of Bruce & Co.

The White Heather Hotel sits on the harbour in the fishing village of Kyleakin and is said to benefit from its picturesque location.

Despite its rural setting, the hotel is located close to the mainland bridge, making deliveries more efficient. And a plentiful supply of fresh fish caught from the surrounding waters daily is said to ensure the hotel offers “the freshest produce” in its dishes.

The property is said to deliver “a home away from home feel”, and comprises two guest areas, with an upstairs study housing a selection of books, magazines and DVDs alongside a kitchenette accessible to guests throughout their stay.

The White Heather Hotel presents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a thriving business.

There are also seven en suite letting bedrooms, with several offering views of the harbour, loch and nearby castle.

And the hotel sale includes a detached three-bedroom owner’s cottage, which features its own private entrance.

Purchased by the current owners in 2003, the hotel is said to have “seen unprecedented success”, benefitting from year on year growth and renewed demand.

Michael Firoozi, negotiator for Bruce & Co, which is marketing the property’s freehold with a price tag of £649,995, said: “The White Heather Hotel presents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a thriving bed and breakfast, with independent owner’s accommodation at the heart of a tranquil, yet hugely popular tourist location.

“Whilst the business has been established for some time, seeing annual growth, it still maintains the potential for tasteful development, allowing future proprietors to leave their own mark.”
