Make waves on west coast

‘Stunning’ loch-side business on the market

OPERATORS looking for a loch-side business on the west coast of Scotland may be keen to view the Creagan Inn.

Located on the shores of  Loch Creran in Appin, the pub and restaurant business, which has come on to the books of property firm Graham & Sibbald, comprises a 70-cover dining area, a 30-cover outdoor terrace and two moorings.

The property also has “expansive” owner’s accommodation and three en suite staff rooms, which are said to offer scope for conversion into guest bedrooms.

Described as a “very profitable business in a picturesque location”, the Creagan Inn is said to benefit from passing trade due to its roadside location, attracting day-trippers, cyclists using the Route 78 cycle path and tourists.

Peter Seymour, head of hotel and leisure at Graham & Sibbald, which is handling the sale of the property, said the current owners have “invested significantly” in the Creagan Inn since buying it in 2015 and are now selling up in order to retire.

“The Creagan Inn occupies a prominent beach-side position within the region of Appin on the west coast of Scotland,” he said.

“The family-run business offers a very good, freshly-prepared menu, predominately based around seafood, but also including other Scottish fare.

“This is a stunning location and excellent opportunity to take on a very profitable business in an picturesque location.

“There is a real opportunity to drive the business on by offering accommodation to passing walkers, cyclists and tourists.”

Offers in the region of £650,000 are being sought for the Creagan Inn.
