Full description


Ardgarry Self Catering Holiday Lets Complex is an outstanding business opportunity set close to the charming and popular village of Invergarry in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. The elevated situation of this resplendent property provides outstanding panoramic views of some of the most stunning and awe-inspiring scenery in the Highlands. The subjects extend to about 8 acres, most of which is used for grazing.
In addition the grounds have an attractive pond, stocked with trout, sitting centrally to the subjects affording both the proprietors and guests excellent amenity space. This superbly redeveloped Farmhouse was previously the games keepers' cottage built originally in 1868 but now reflective of modern standards of comfort and decor. This expansive property brings together 2 quality double bedrooms on the top floor as well as a 1 bedroom ensuite ground floor room with its own external access. There is also a 2-bedroom cottage (Highgarry Cottage) plus a one bedroom flat, (Summer House) and 4 self-catering Lodges.

The summer house and ground floor bedroom although able to be let as independent units are seasonally let out by the current owners on a bed and breakfast basis, new owners could choose how they would wish to operate this. Of note is that both rooms have private entrances; one room is set within the Farmhouse and the other being in a separate building (The Summer House). Breakfasts are served in the Farmhouse dining room but new owners could utilize a continental breakfast style of operation with breakfasts being served in these spacious bedrooms. There is room within the summer house to install a kitchen if desired. 4 Norwegian style three-bedroom Lodges are also presented in excellent order with outstanding services and facilities, as is Highgarry Cottage a very attractive two bed cottage.

There has been in recent years a conscious decision by the owners to restrict their trade for personal reasons. They presently operate during the main summer season despite some demand for winter trade and the lure of the popular Glen Nevis Mountain Range and Ski Resort. However trade remains brisk but it is readily accepted that new owners could easily drive trade, increasing levels of turnover and thereby profitability. Presently operating below the VAT threshold the business generates a healthy adjusted Net profit. The business comes to the market in walk-in condition and is ready to operate with no requirement for additional significant capital investment.

The business attracts tourists who are undertaking the Great Glen Way, both on foot and cycling, mountaineers taking advantage of the close proximity of numerous Munro's and passing trade heading towards the west coast and the Isles plus those undertaking a more leisurely holiday absorbing the natural beauty in the region. The business caters for groups, families and single travelers. The Complex has a popular website and with other marketing forums maintains a steady trade during the summer season. Ardgarry Farm Self Catering Complex is set close to the shores of Loch Oich which lies between Loch Ness and Loch Lochy in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty with acres of tranquil woodland and majestic walks. The Farm is in easy reach of many notable mountain areas including Nevis Range, Glen Shiel, The Grey Corries are less than half an hour away and Ben Nevis, Creag Meagaidh, Glen Dessary, Quoich Munros and Kinloch Hourn, the gateway to Knoydart; all within 30 miles. For bikers there are some excellent trails. The area is also well-known for field sports and water sports. Within the village of Invergarry is a pub, post office, petrol station with a small shop plus a community centre with seasonal cafe and heritage centre.
