Historic property near Fort William is now on the market

A NEW owner is being sought for an award-winning Highland hotel that was once a hunting lodge for the laird of Macintosh.

Glenspean Lodge Hotel, in Roybridge, near Fort William, dates back to the 1800s and is located on five acres of gardens and woodland. 

Originally built as a hunting lodge, it is now a 17-bedroom hotel that has been extensively refurbished and extended over the years, having been kitted out with modern facilities throughout the property. 

The hotel’s en suite bedrooms – described as being of ‘a high standard offering a homely atmosphere’ – are said to be individually decorated, with no two the same. 

Each of the property’s Mountain View rooms command picturesque views over the gardens and nearby mountains – including Ben Nevis. 

The turret room, meanwhile, is a particular showpiece – occupying a large space, it features its own sitting area and a bathroom located in the turret itself which contains a roll-top bath. 

In addition to the letting rooms, the hotel also features its own restaurant, the Nevis View, and a pub space in the form of the Macintosh Lounge bar as well as three-bedroom owner’s accommodation. 

“Over the years, the Glenspean Lodge has won a variety of awards from the Scottish Hotel Awards, as well as accolades from the Luxury Travel Guide and the prestigious Gold Award in Green Tourism,” said a statement from selling agent Bruce & Co, which is marketing the Glenspean Lodge Hotel.

“The hotel has also received TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence several years in a row. 

“Glenspean Lodge Hotel is a truly amazing opportunity with a vibrant history and scenic location in the Scottish Highlands.”

Bruce & Co is marketing Glenspean Lodge Hotel for offers over £1.25 million.
