The Edinburgh office of leading hotel and licensed property specialist Colliers International is inviting offers of around £820,000 for the property, which was originally built by the 2nd Duke of Sutherland as a coaching inn.
Located in the village of Scourie, Lairg, Sutherland, the hotel has for many years been a firm favourite with fishing aficionados who enjoy the wild and rugged beauty of Sutherland and North West Scotland. The surrounding area offers an unrivalled outdoor experience, with its unique flora, fauna and geology, as well as a wide choice of field sports.
The Scourie Hotel, which has 20 letting bedrooms, lounges, two bars, restaurant and is complimented by a four-bedroom house for owners and a separate one-bedroom ‘granny’ flat, has leased fishing rights over some 25,000 acres of Sutherland. This includes fishing on around 300 lochs and lochans, divided into 42 different beats, offering something different every day for fishermen.
Patrick and Judy Price, who have owned and operated the Scourie Hotel since 1998, have successfully developed a profitable hotel business, trading on a seven-month season. They have concentrated on the fishing clientele, which has allowed them to put their own stamp and enthusiasm on the business. This has ensured a high volume of repeat custom, who enjoy the hospitality at the Scourie Hotel, as well as the excellent range of fishing available.
Alistair Letham, a director with selling agents Colliers International, commented: “The Scourie Hotel is a well-established and profitable business, which is also an excellent family home. It will appeal to those looking for an hotel that has a high degree of specialisation.
“While located in one of Scotland’s, probably the UK’s, most unspoilt locations, it remains very accessible, with good road connections from Inverness. This ensures that the business enjoys a wonderful flow of repeat business, fuelled by the joy of the fishing offered by the hotel.”
