Tenure: Freehold

Bruce and Co. are delighted to offer for sale Autumn Gold, a beautifully presented Bed & Breakfast situated in The Black Isle, Ross-Shire. The business holds a 4* rating with the Scottish Tourist Board and is highly rated on Trip Advisor where it has been awarded a certificate of excellence for consecutive years. It also features on several hotel booking sites where it receives exemplary feedback from previous guests. Autumn Gold provides luxury bed and breakfast accommodation in a commanding property with elegant interior 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 high standard and extended the building in 2012. They are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their impending wish to retire. Autumn Gold enjoys a generous 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 is currently run to the owners pace but could trade successfully all year round although our clients have chosen to focus on the main season from Easter through to November offering plenty of potential to increase turnover should new owners wish to increase the trading period.

Cromarty is a pretty town at the north eastern end of the peninsula and the largest settlement on the Black Isle being only 30 minutes drive from Inverness. Attractive 1700s houses line the streets and Cromarty Court House contains a museum of local history. North of Inverness, the main A9 crosses the Moray Firth via a spectacular bridge before carving across the hillside behind the old ferry terminus of North Kessock across the Black Isle. This is actually a peninsula surrounded by the Moray and Cromarty Firths rather than an island, which links to the rest of the mainland at Muir of Ord. The Black Isle is an area of rolling hills and fertile farmland, which enjoys a particularly mild climate.

The Business Premises occupy an impressive detached building, with an imposing position on an elevated spot. This modern property benefits from its position within the hillside overlooking the sea and its beautiful surrounding landscaped gardens which are extremely well maintained. The décor and interior has been thoughtfully planned and implemented by the current owners to an extremely high standard throughout which is reflected in the previous reviews by guests and the 4* award received from the Scottish Tourist Board. The property is arranged over 2 floors and entrance to the building is from the front which leads in to a large welcoming reception hallway. The breakfast room/conservatory is located to the rear of the property with stunning sea views as well as overlooking the landscaped garden.
Letting Rooms
Autumn Gold offers 4 letting rooms, all of which have either en-suite or private shower/bathroom facilities. Each guest room has been individually finished to an excellent standard and offer a high level of comfortable accommodation with attractive views. Three of the letting rooms are located on the upper floor of the property overlooking the surrounding countryside and expansive gardens with the fourth room located on the ground floor with private bathroom.

At Autumn Gold, owners benefit from spacious private accommodation which is presented to an excellent standard and in keeping with the remainder of the property. The private accommodation is located on the ground floor and consists of a large double bedroom, Bathroom, a study/office (which could also be used as an additional bedroom), a spacious private lounge with freestanding stove, with plenty of windows looking out to the front of the property and a well presented modern fitted kitchen with functional utility room. A large double garage is located at the side of the property which can also be accessed from the ground floor to the side the house.
