The Station Guest House is in a lovely coastal village overlooking Avoch Bay and the Moray Firth situated about 13 miles north of the city of Inverness, and 8 miles south of Dingwall. Located on the south side of the Black Isle on the A832 between Munlochy and Fortrose, this vibrant village currently has a population of circa 1000. The business drives turnover mainly from accommodation with some additional income from food and wet sales. Until recently the business operated as a Hotel but due to family circumstances the owners now restrict trade. New owners could choose operate as a guest house or could, if so desired, resurrect the full Hotel operation. Income from accommodation is derived from tourists in the main season but a healthy occupancy level is maintained all year-round through business to business provision. The business boasts a well-appointed dining area off a comfortable bar. The owners maintain a restricted level of food service despite a much higher proven demand. They also undertake functions for weddings, celebration meals etc but by prior appointment only. The present owners purchased the business in 2010 and have expended a great deal of time, effort and financial resources to bring the property to the market in excellent condition. Though they have enjoyed their time as proprietors, it is a change of personal circumstances that brings the property prematurely to the market. This leaves new owners with the opportunity to develop this highly attractive business to the next level.
||The owners’ private flat is located over 2 levels with bedrooms located at the garden level which is below the main service areas and incorporates a total of 4 additional bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. The owner’s accommodation has a separate access with parking immediately to the point of entry. At the basement level there is a large playroom for the vendor’s children. On the ground floor there is a most generous lounge with an area set aside as a small computer room. The family also use the commodious conservatory for their private use.
