Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Outer Hebrides is the only place in the UK to be named as one of the top 100 places to visit in the world, which attracts thousands of visitors each year. The Loch Erisort Inn, on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides (or the Western Isles) is situated midway between Stornoway and Tarbert, about 1.5 miles along the B8060 at Balallan, in the Pairc area of South Lochs.

The Business
Surrounded by croft land and with views over Loch Erisort, the Inn occupies a peaceful and tranquil setting, and is ideally situated for exploring both Harris and Lewis. Built in the early 1970s when it was known as the Claitair Hotel, the accommodation has recently been refurbished to provide 5 comfortable en suite rooms, those at the rear having views over Loch Erisort and those at the front looking over the Eishken and Pairc hills. Home cooked meals using as much local produce as possible are available all day in the restaurant and there is a well stocked and lively public bar. This is an extremely busy business with great potential and is the only stopping area for 17 miles in both directions. After 14 years the property has been placed on the market due to the current vendors impending wish to retire and ill health.

To the front of the property is a large car park which can hold up to 20 cars. To the rear is a large grass drying area and smoking area. There is huge potential to develop the property externally.

Letting Rooms
The Loch Erisort Inn boasts 5 en-suite letting rooms, comprising of 3 doubles, a twin and a family room. The rooms have recently been refurbished to a very high standard.

There is a further bedroom on the ground floor being used as the owner’s accommodation.

Public Areas
The bar area is very warm and inviting with a lovely wood burning fire and pool table. The restaurant can seat up to 40 covers and the bar 20, with a function room which can hold up to 100 people. Ladies and Gents toilets are further down the hallway complete with a disabled toilet. There is further scope to add a beer garden to maximise this opportunity.

Service Areas
The kitchen is fitted and equipped to a very high standard, in keeping with the rest of the property. There is also a well sized beer cellar and storage area, laundry room, cleaning store and office.

The property is held on the Scottish equivalent of freehold.

The property has mains water, a septic tank, LPG cooking and heating through oil fired heating system.
