Balbair Guest House is an elegantly, well presented, substantial detached property enjoying privacy and yet being close to the Highlands centre of Inverness. The property is built of traditional construction with a slate roof. The imposing frontage welcomes guests to a property of immense character and charm.

Balblair Guest House is perfectly situated taking advantage of all the best things that the Highlands have to offer. Located in a small village between Tain and Dornoch, the main road near the property is the main route to John O' Groats, the most northerly point of mainland UK. Inverness, the capital of the Highlands is only 34 miles to the South. A growing city, Inverness airport now benefits from regular daily flights throughout the UK.

Balblair Guest House is well presented. It enjoys a modern contemporary feel inside, whilst retaining many of the original features. All rooms are well appointed and the current proprietors have refurbished the property in full to the highest of standards. This property offers the new owner the opportunity to take over with no improvement works required.

The rooms and public areas are set to a high standard. The House is spacious and yet retaining a ''cosy'' feel. It offers guests a very high standard of comfort.

The House is approached off the main road along a private driveway. Entry is via the main front entrance (additional optional separate entrance to House and private service access via side/rear entrances) leading into the hall/reception. The central hall area then leads to all other areas including residents' room/lounge and the breakfast room. From the ground floor, the elegant staircase leads to the split areas of the upper hall, which in turn leads to the office and 10 en suite bedrooms, all decorated and equipped to a high standard. The rooms have an air of spaciousness and good views. All rooms have private en suite facilities. The large kitchen, which is conveniently located within the house, is equipped to good modern standards and with full ancillary equipment. The kitchen is located adjacent to the hall/public areas of the Guest House.

It should be noted that Planning Permission exists for a further 6 bedroom extension to the property.

Balblair Guest House has great scope for any new proprietor wishing to maximise its true, currently unrealised, potential. There is scope for an immediate turnover with lunch snacks and evening meals and possible licensing to serve alcohol in the lounge area (or small bar server potential). Outside, the property enjoys excellent privacy, especially given its excellent location.

The property is currently unoccupied and as such is not trading as a guest house; it was purchased and refurbished by our seller with the intention of operating as a Care Home. However, due to a change in personal circumstances they have decided to bring the property to market. Having reviewed the property and its situation, we are of the opinion that it would be an ideal guest house given its stunning location and high standard of finish.

The business benefits from having a fully equipped kitchen offering an excellent range of cooking appliances and all ancillary support and will easily cater for any increase to luncheons and residents' evening meals. There is also a designated laundry room. There is ample storage within the house and contained within the grounds is additional outhouse storage.
