INTRODUCTION

The Broadford Hotel is the original home of the world famous Drambuie Liqueur after the secret formula for the elixir was passed to, developed and patented by the 19th century owner of the Broadford Hotel. The hotel, reputedly, has its origins dating from as far back as the early 17th century and therefore it can claim to be one of the oldest continuously operated hotels in Scotland. Over the years the property has been extended to provide a balance of accommodation and more recently has been extensively refurbished to create the now stylish country style hotel of appeal to the increasingly discerning 21st century traveller and visitor, whilst retaining a local appeal to its bar and catering activities.

The Broadford Hotel is located in the centre of the village of Broadford on the main A87 road leading from the Skye Bridge, at Kyle of Lochalsh/Kyleakin, to Portree - the island's "capital". The Isle of Skye is considered by many to be one of the most spectacular Scottish islands - some 50 miles in length it is the largest of the Inner Hebridean group. The island is deeply indented with sea lochs and rocky headlands forming a series of peninsulas. Skye is a beautiful and romantic treasure to the North West of Scotland and now that it is linked by the bridge to the mainland it is even more accessible and draws many tens of thousands of visitors every year.

Following its refurbishment the Broadford Hotel offers stylish and modern accommodation throughout and this country hotel has a strong emphasis on F & B services. The success of this is reflected in the business that has been established at the hotel. In addition plans are finalised for an 18 bedroom extension which provides an exciting development prospect for any new owner.
