Parks and Leisure specialist Colliers International has been instructed to sell the stunning Loch Monzievaird Lodges in Crieff, Perthshire, with offers over £2.85m being sought. The property, which has secured planning permission for further development, boasts 23 self-catering holiday lodges over 30 acres of gently sloping countryside, set around the picturesque Loch Monzievaird. It provides a rare opportunity to acquire a property and profitable business of high quality and aesthetic merit.
The sale represents the end of an era, as owners Stephen and Siân Brown, have owned and successfully operated the business for over 17 years but feel the time is now right to move on.
Stephen Brown said: “It has been a wonderful 17 years for us. Loch Monzievaird is a magical place and is where we raised our children, so will always have a special place in our hearts. In a business sense, we feel that the new owner will continue to enjoy the success we have experienced and going forwards will benefit from both the new online booking system and the high levels of repeat business. Popularity for short breaks seems to be at its height and certainly the Ryder Cup up the road at Gleneagles next year will only help!”
Richard Moss, director of Colliers International, said: “Loch Monzievaird is a beautiful property, which has derived strong and consistent profits throughout the vendor’s tenure and has permission for further development. In addition to the holiday letting business, the sale includes a house, gamekeepers lodge and also benefits from planning consent to develop additional lodges in some breathtaking lochside plots.
“It is an excellent time to be buying in Scotland with so much positivity surrounding tourist businesses – hugely amplified by the Commonwealth Games and Ryder Cup both being held in Scotland next year.”
