Island business on market for first time in over 45 years
AN Isle of Skye accommodation business is on the market for the first time in over 45 years.
Occupying a stunning waterfront position, The Old Inn in Carbost is described as a “high volume pub/restaurant with letting accommodation”.
The business, which is being sold by Spencer Smith and Angus Cooper, whose family has owned and operated the inn for almost half a century, comprises an 80-cover pub and a range of guest accommodation, including a five-bedroom bunkhouse and six B&B letting rooms.
There’s also a manager’s flat and further staff accommodation; and a new waterfront outdoor seating area.
The Old Inn is said to benefit from the many visitors to the Isle of Skye and has also established a strong reputation among locals on the island.
Peter Seymour, hotel and leisure agent with Graham & Sibbald, which is marketing The Old Inn with a price tag of offers over £1.9 million, said the business “benefits from such a fantastic location” and “would suit an owner operator looking for a successful lifestyle business”.
“This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of the Isle of Skye’s leisure institutions,” he said.
“The Old Inn has a fantastic reputation and its atmosphere during the summer is exceptional.
“This is a fantastic chance for a small to medium-sized group or an owner operator to take on this business.”
