A very speedy hotel sale by Farr

The Steadings snapped up after seven weeks on market

The Steadings

AN Inverness-shire hotel has been snapped up by a first-time buyer after just seven weeks on the market.

The Steadings changed hands for an undisclosed sum after a marketing campaign by property agent Bruce & Co is said to have generated a high level of interest from potential buyers.

Located at Flichity by Farr in the Srathnairn valley close to Loch Ness and just 15 minutes south of Inverness, the building now occupied by The Steadings is said to date from 1860 and was part of the original Flichity Inn.

The hotel is set amid beautiful scenery with excellent travel links nearby.

The Steadings, which has been under the same ownership for the past decade, now comprises nine guest bedrooms and The Grouse & Trout restaurant, which attracts locals, guests and passing trade, with the bar area said to benefit from a local clientele.

There’s also a registered caravan and campsite for self-catering guests adjacent to the hotel. And the business is said to benefit from its location amid “beautiful scenery”, with Loch Ness a short distance away and “excellent travel links nearby”.

Bruce & Co sales negotiator Lauren Lees said The Steadings generated a high level of interest, resulting in nine viewings and four “strong offers” before being sold to a first-time buyer just seven weeks after going on the market. She said the new owner intends to “continue to successfully run the business, as well as grow and extend it”.

“I am pleased for both parties following the sale of The Steadings,” said Lees.
“The sale went through in just seven weeks, which is fantastic.

“We wish both the sellers and the new owner the best of luck in the future.”
