Description
Bruce and Co. are delighted to offer for sale Westbank House, a beautifully presented Guesthouse situated on the West Coast of Scotland on the scenic Mull of Kintyre Peninsula. The business is highly rated on TripAdvisor where it has been awarded a certificate of excellence and it features on several hotel booking sites
receiving exemplary feedback from previous guests.

Westbank House provides comfortable modern bed and breakfast accommodation in a traditional Victorian property with contemporary interior, making the business very unique in the local area. The business has been under the very caring ownership of our client for over 6 years during which time she has carefully carried out substantial modernisations throughout the entire property to a very high standard. Our client is reluctantly offering the business to the market due to other career commitments.

Westbank House enjoys a generous turnover and not only provides its owner with an excellent source of income but also a wonderful home with outstanding views from the property.

The property truly is superbly presented and can only be appreciated in full by
viewing. The business trades throughout the year with the main season being
March through to October. There is very little marketing carried out at present
receiving custom predominantly from word of mouth and previous guests;
despite this Westbank House trades with high occupancy levels.


Situation
Westbank House is situated in a highly sought after and quiet corner of the town of Campbeltown. The business is well positioned to enjoy pleasant elevated views and is within walking distance of the town centre and local amenities. Campbeltown is famous for its part in the whisky industry and at present still has 3 distilleries in production. The town also features a beautiful natural harbour with separate mooring and pontoon facilities and also an airport with twice daily weekday flights to Glasgow with a flight
time of only 30 minutes. The area is well served by road and bus services to Glasgow are in operation 4 times daily with a journey time of approximately 3 hours and a ferry service from Ardrossan in summer time makes the town even more accessible. The town offers a good range of amenities including two supermarkets, cinema, hospital with A&E service, and excellent primary and secondary schooling. For the golfing enthusiast the renowned championship links at Machrihanish are only 6 miles to the west of town as is the Machrihanish Dunes Golf Course, Dunaverty golf course is situated 8 miles away at Southend.
