The Falls of Dochart Inn, overlooking one of Scotland’s most famous Highland beauty spots, has gone on the market, with significant potential to develop the thriving destination business.
Commanding a roadside position in the Highland village of Killin, the Falls of Dochart Inn is being offered for sale by Colliers International, alongside adjacent self-catering Falls Cottage and the opportunity to build several new lodges.
Alistair Letham, a director in the UK hotels agency team at Colliers International, said: “This is the property immediately overlooking the iconic falls at Killin, and that in itself ensures it is of particular interest to ambitious hoteliers. The Falls of Dochart is trading very profitably after 16 years of investment from the existing owners, and there is additional scope to extend the season.
“Additionally, it is being sold with a sizeable area of land included: Plans have been prepared and planning permission has been granted to build two holiday lodges, behind the existing self-catering property, Falls Cottage. The availability of the Falls of Dochart Inn and Falls Cottage offers new owners an excellent opportunity to acquire an established and rewarding business, with significant additional scope, including the development of the lodges.”
Since purchasing the property in 2001, the sellers have carried out significant improvement, upgrading the property and creating an attractive destination business, full of character throughout. The bar and restaurant facilities have always been a key focus and the seven upgraded bedrooms bring the accommodation up to boutique hotel standard. Its bar, restaurants and coffee shop combined provide up 80 dining covers and in the summer the outside terrace can provide a further 40 covers for alfresco dining. Staff and owners’ accommodation is also included.
Colliers International Is inviting offers of around £1,250,000 for the Falls of Dochart Inn, Falls Cottage and lodge development land properties, Gray Street, Killin, Perthshire FK21 8SL.
