An Argyllshire café bistro with ‘stunning sea views’ has come onto the books of property agent Bruce & Co. 

The Boat House in Dunoon has been run by its current owners since 2016 and is said to be a firm favourite with regular clientele as well as tourists. 

The business currently offers breakfast, lunch and light snacks as well as refreshments. Bruce & Co said that the current owners have increased sales year on year. The venue can cater for 50 guests inside, with a further 40 on the front patio.

Bruce & Co is seeking offers over £199,950 for the leasehold – and said that the sale offers ‘a truly fantastic opportunity to purchase a well-visited popular café and bistro in a scenic location’.

Dunoon is the main town on the Cowall peninsula, in the south of Argyll and Bute. With a rich history surrounding feuding clans, the town became a popular port for steamships travelling up the Clyde.

The town also became a garrison for the United States Navy during the height of the Cold War and has hosted the Royal National Mòd. It also hosts the annual Cowall Highland Gathering (also known as the Cowall Games) which has been held there since 1894.
