The Royal an Lochan Hotel is an extremely busy business that has been run by the current proprietor since 2010. The hotel has been placed on the market due to the current proprietor's health issues, yet trades throughout the year from a good mix of accommodation, food and wet sales.

The quality of the hotel is reflected in the number of awards it currently holds, such as a 2013 Michelin listing, 'Scotland the Best' recommended and is rated as 'Excellent' by over 100 Trip Advisor Visitors. Additional marketing is carried out through its own informative website www.theroyalanlochan.co.uk

The business enjoys much repeat custom, particularly due to its stunning location overlooking the loch, not to mention its excellent reputation. Many of the visitors include couples, boaters in the summer months and outdoor enthusiasts. The hotel also plays an integral role in the local community, as many locals meet to enjoy a drink in the 'Shinty Bar', along with eating at the popular restaurant.

Although the hotel is trading extremely successfully, it still has potential to grow income further.
