Allengrange Bed and Breakfast offers most comfortable guest facilities and benefits from a prime trading location overlooking the village of Kinlochleven. The current trading model of the business is to let all 5 bedrooms purely on a bed and breakfast basis. Three of the rooms are en-suite with modern facilities with the remaining two bedrooms sharing a large bathroom that has a separate shower and Jacuzzi bath. The property includes a spacious dining room that can accommodate all guests simultaneously. The dining rooms offers some spectacular scenic views. The business has the facilities to meet the requirements of the many walkers who take to the West Highland Way through the provision of a heated drying room and equipment storage. The business has just been fully renovated and commenced operating in March 2016. The present owners live out with the property. New owners may choose to utilise one of the rooms for their own use as a result reducing the number of letting bedrooms. The existing trading model is to trade from Easter to October each year but new operators may wish to trade year-round. There is potential to put a static caravan in the grounds, subject to planning consents, which would maintain the letting accommodation at its present level. This impressive property is now offered for sale in a truly walk-in condition and offers new owners an easy-to-operate home and lifestyle business opportunity.
The B&B has a website where it is self-evident that the level of trade going forward is consistently high. As part of the sale the current owners would transfer all rights to the website. In addition all fixtures and fittings as viewed will be sold as part of the business transfer. The owners wish to focus on their other business activities hence their decision to present the property to the market.
The village of Kinlochleven has a population of circa 1000 inhabitants which significantly swells with the influx of visitors during the main tourism season. However with Glencoe Ski centre and The Ice Factor (the biggest indoor ice climbing wall in the world) nearby, there is the opportunity to trade year-round. Kinlochleven is the penultimate stop on the West Highland Way attracting many thousands of walkers each year and this plays a vital role in the Kinlochleven economy. Allengrange Bed and Breakfast is conveniently situated for guests wishing to walk to the range of nearby shops, restaurants etc. The village has both primary and secondary education plus a range of other social and welfare facilities. Kinlochleven is 21 miles from Fort William "the Outdoor Capital of the UK" and only 6 miles from Glencoe. The area surrounding Kinlochleven includes rugged mountains, deep-sea lochs and beautiful coastline presenting some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery and with it a host of birds and wildlife. Miles of unspoilt countryside and iconic Munros provide terrain to please walkers and climbers of all aptitudes. Sailing, water sports, coastal cruising and fishing are all available locally. Field sports and mountain biking are other popular pursuits. The proximity to Nevis Range Mountain Resort and the Glencoe Ski Resort adds skiing to the list in winter. The popularity of the area for winter sports complements summer tourism to potentially develop the business further.
