Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Additionally an outstanding modern 3-bedroom detached managerís house providing exceptional family living space. Salmon and Trout fishing rights and large areas of under-utilised ground with further development potential STPP. Cumberlandís Campsite and Stravaigerís Lodge is a unique opportunity to own a camping and caravan site with exceptional and modern facilities, trading with a Scottish Tourist Board Camping Site and Lodge 4-Star grading. This most attractive business is set within the ever-popular village of Fort Augustus close to the southern end of Loch Ness and is a truly spectacular opportunity for an entrepreneur to develop a thriving business further. This vast trading entity benefits from a dramatic and tranquil location and boasts salmon and trout fishing rights on the River Tarff. The property has a historical association with the Duke of Cumberlandís soldiers who used the site after the battle of Culloden in 1746 who were in pursuit of the famous Bonnie Prince Charlie.

The income earning aspects are; camping / caravan / campervan fees, electrical hook-up fees, bunkhouse rooms and wet and food sales from MacKayís Bar and Restaurant. The business trades in the main tourist season only; Easter to September. The site has been operating from 2006 and has been continuously developed since that time. The bunkhouse was built in 2006 and the campsite was opened in 2009. MacKayís Bar and Restaurant was converted from a lodge building in 2013 and opened for business in June 2014. This aspect of the business is now proving to be a sound haunt not only for site residents but also locals and other holiday makers. The restaurant is presently only open during the evening and there may be scope to extend trading hours to include lunch-time service. Of the over 29 acres on sale, it is estimated that circa two thirds remain un-developed presenting potential for amenity and accommodation growth subject to planning consents.
