Bruce and Co. are delighted to offer for sale The Tables Guest House, a beautifully presented Guest House situated in the village of Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye. The business has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor and receives fantastic complimentary reviews there from previous guests as well as on booking.com and other hotel booking websites.

The Tables Guest House provides bed and breakfast accommodation in a commanding detached property with elegant interior and spectacular views making the business very unique in the local area. The business has been under the very caring ownership of our clients for 10 years during which time they have carefully carried out substantial refurbishments throughout the entire property to a very good standard. They are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their impending wish to retire.

The guest house enjoys a good turnover and not only provides the owners with an excellent source of income but also a wonderful home. The property truly is superbly presented and can only be appreciated in full by viewing. The business enjoys high occupancy levels and trades all year round. Marketing is carried out through their own website at www.the-tables.co.uk and business is also generated through booking.com and other publications. In addition, many of the guests stay at the Tables Guest House when dining at the world famous Three Chimneys Restaurant. The business currently runs as bed & breakfast but has the potential and facilities to offer evening meals, lunches and perhaps the introduction of coffees, afternoon teas, etc. for non-residents.

The Isle of Skye is situated on the West Coast of Scotland and is one of the most popular and best known of the Inner Hebrides. The village of Dunvegan is situated on the North West tip of the island amidst superb scenery and views. Dunvegan is around 21 miles from Portree, the principal town of the island and around 1 hour's drive north of Kyle of Lochalsh (mainland point where the Skye Road Bridge connects to the island). As well as this, there are also 2 ferry services from Glenelg and Mallaig giving tourists a more romantic journey to the island. Dunvegan itself is a popular tourist destination drawing large volumes of custom attracted by the wonderful scenery as well as being home of the Clan MacLeod and the ancestral Castle which lies approximately 1 mile away. Apart from this, Skye's mountains are popular with mountaineers and hillwalkers with other sporting activities including sailing, pony trekking as well as the island having its own golf course at Sconser. The Tables Guest House is on the main A863 road through the village ideally positioned for the tourist trade with stunning views across Loch Dunvegan and the Tables Mountains.

The business premises occupy an impressive detached building dating back to 1896, which stands on an imposing corner position on an elevated spot. The décor and interior has been thoughtfully planned and implemented by the current owners to a high standard throughout which is reflected in the previous reviews and feedback by guests as well as the high occupancy levels.
