AN “extremely rare opportunity” to acquire a business on the banks of Loch Lomond has arisen as the Inn on Loch Lomond has come onto the market through Smith & Clough Business Associates.

Said to have traded since 1884, the Inverbeg business has been under its current family ownership since June 2007 and has undergone significant expansion and refurbishment.

Said to be presented to a “very high standard both internally and externally whilst retaining much of its original charm”, the Inn on Loch Lomond has 25 en suite guest rooms, including ten larger rooms, with most of the rooms offering views of Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond.

Also offering views towards Loch Lomond is the 50-cover lounge bar and restaurant area with feature elm bar and open fireplace; there’s also a dining room and conservatory which can accommodate a combined 70 covers; and “extensive” outdoor seating, including a covered section and a picnic area.

A cottage with eight “exquisite” rooms, which was refurbished in December 2021, is available by separate negotiation.

Graeme Smith, director at Smith & Clough Business Associates which is marketing the Inn on Loch Lomond with a price tag of offers over £2.5 million, said the sale represents “an extremely exciting opportunity for a discerning private multiple operator or for a single buyer looking for a trophy asset in one of the most desirable trading areas in Scotland”.

“The Inn on Loch Lomond offers an exceptional opportunity within a location that a business of this nature is very rarely available and we would expect high levels of interest from both single and group operators,” he said.

“Having sold the business to our clients in 2007, it has been greatly enhanced and is now regarded as one of the finest inns in the area with a good reputation and we are delighted to be handling the sale once again after all these years.”
