Bruce and Co. are pleased to offer for sale The Ben Bhraggie Hotel, a popular and very busy inn situated in the village of Golspie, Sutherland. The Ben Bhraggie Hotel was purchased by our clients over 8 years ago during which time it has been trading successfully and has reluctantly been placed on the market due to the owner's wish to retire. The property has been very carefully maintained by our clients throughout their ownership and is presented in true walk in condition with no work required before new owners could commence immediate trading. The business has established an excellent base of loyal clientèle from local residents and forms an integral part of the local community but majority of business comes from tourists visiting the area with its main road location on the A9. Our clients advise us that income is derived from wet sales, dry sales and letting accommodation. Although trading well, The Ben Bhraggie Hotel still has potential to grow as currently very little marketing is done.

The Ben Bhraggie Hote is a traditional sandstone building, built circa 1829 is set on the main road through the village in the picturesque Conservation area of Golspie. This sits within the old crofting county of Sutherland and is situated in the far northern Highlands of Scotland. It is bordered to the south by the county of Ross-shire and to the north-east by the county of Caithness. With a population of just over 13,000 people living in an area covering 2,300 square miles, Sutherland is one of the remotest and sparsely populated, yet beautiful parts of Scotland. Close by you will find Dunrobin Castle, Big Burn, Brora, Dornoch and Golspie Golf Courses, as well as Golspie's Highland Wildcat Trails.

It was the early viking settlers who came to Caithness that named everything to the south "The Southlands", which is how Sutherland came by its name. However, despite its location, Sutherland has modern travel and communication connections with the rest of the country. The main A9 trunk road links Sutherland to Inverness and the south, as does the railway line. There are also airports within easy reach at Inverness and Wick. Sutherland is easy to get to and once there, you feel that you are a million miles away from the rest of the world.

The business premises occupy an impressive 2 storey detached property located on the
main road from Inverness to the north. Entrance to the business is at the side of the property
leading off the Carpark into the main restaurant area. The restaurant benefits from it's own bar area located at the left hand side. The restaurant is partitioned with sliding glass doors, and doubles as a Function Room. There is a public bar area on the front of the building, with entrances directly from the A9 as well as within the building's main hallway. The bar
area is traditionally furnished with covers for 20 with wooden tables and chairs, and the
restaurant is designed with more of a modern contemporary finish and benefits from covers
for 60. A fully equipped kitchen is located to the rear of the property and the business has
plenty of preparation and storage areas.


The Ben Bhraggie Hotel features 7 letting bedrooms which are located on the upper level and are accessed via the reception hallway. The rooms are configured with a mixture of single, twin, double and family rooms which allow our clients to offer lots of flexibility for various party sizes. Guests have access to 2 washrooms one with a power shower and one with a bath.

The owner's accommodation is located on the second floor of the business premises. The owner's accommodation consists of a large living area, 1 double bedroom, 1 single bedroom and a good sized shower room with wc. The owners quarters are exceptionally well presented and private accommodation of this size is exceptionally rare in a business such as this.

The Ben Bhraggie hotel is straight to street with parking available to the left hand side in the large private car park. A patio beer garden is located to the front with wooden picnic benches. Outbuildings to the rear are currently used for storage but with a little renovation work these could provide an opportunity to increase letting rooms or offer additional accommodation contributing to increased turnover.

Services
The property has mains water, drainage, electricity, gas.
