Overview: - Built in 1923 by a local stonemason, Staffa House is a spacious five bedroom, two-storey detached house situated in Fionnphort on the Ross of Mull. Currently run as a B&B (graded 3-star Gold with Visit Scotland), the house comprises four en-suite guest bedrooms and private owner accommodation. The main guesthouse accommodation on the ground floor comprises an entrance hall, residents' lounge, large conservatory, twin en-suite guest room, store room and back porch/laundry. Upstairs, a spacious landing leads to three more en-suite guest rooms which enjoy views over fields and towards the Sound of Iona. A doorway from the entrance hall in the main house leads to the owner accommodation in a recent extension (built 2003) to the rear of the main house. This accommodation comprises a modern kitchen, hall, porch with external door, shower room, lounge, double bedroom. Staffa House is presented in immaculate condition, decorated in neutral colours throughout with modern bathrooms and kitchen. The property boasts double glazing, electric heating and hot water, the latter being enhanced by solar thermal panels installed in 2009.
The Business: - The present owners have run Staffa House as a B&B for the last nine years (for details visit www.staffahouse.co.uk), achieving excellent trade through the summer months with sustained high demand due to the large numbers of visitors every year to Iona, Staffa and the Ross of Mull. Equally, the property would make a fantastic family home or holiday rental with the option to sub-divide the main house and owner accommodation (subject to relevant consents) in order to provide a variety of possible rental options.
Accommodation in Fionnphort is much sought after in the summer months, with large numbers of tourists visiting the islands of Iona and Staffa. The tariff being currently achieved for each letting bedrooms is in the region of £76 per night. There is considerable scope for serving evening meals to residents since eating places in the local vicinity are limited in number. Staffa House offers a fantastic opportunity of purchasing a thriving business in a prime trading location.
Full accounting history will be made available to parties showing serious interest only after formally viewing the business.

Outside: - Staffa House is surrounded by its own sizeable private garden which is predominantly laid to lawn with flowerbeds and some small shrubs. The front garden comprises an area of lawn with a wide path leading to the front door. Next to the conservatory is a gravelled area with raised beds currently used for growing vegetables and herbs. A small wooden decking area leads into the garden from the conservatory and makes a great place to sit whilst enjoying views across the Sound of Iona. To the rear there is a sizeable lawn with a neat gravel path leading to two sheds and this is surrounded by a wooden fence and mature shrubs.
Location: - Staffa House is nested in a row of houses in the village of Fionnphort on the Ross of Mull and enjoys westerly views across the Sound of Iona. The property is only a short walk from the local shop, pub and Iona ferry terminal building. Fionnphort is approx. 45 minutes' drive from the island's main ferry terminal at Craignure. The island is also home for many species of wildlife including the fourth largest eagle in the world - the white tailed, and has the densest population of golden eagles in Europe, as well as basking sharks, minke whales, porpoises, dolphins and seals. The Isle of Iona receives thousands of visitors every year visiting the Abbey and enjoying boat trips to the neighbouring Isle of Staffa to see the famous Fingal's Cave. Boat trips are also available to see wild seabird colonies on the other Treshnish Isles.
