Bruce and Co. are delighted to present to the market The Bothy Bar & Restaurant a long established restaurant and pub positioned in the idyllic surroundings of Fort Augustus, Loch Ness. The business has been under the very caring ownership of our clients for 11 years and has reluctantly been placed on the market due to their wish to retire. The Bothy Bar & Restaurant enjoys a generous turnover and provides the owners with an excellent source of income which is derived from revenue generated through very strong all year round tourist trade as well as a locally supported business with wet sales from the public bar food sales from the 60 cover restaurant. The Bothy Bar & Restaurant receives exemplary feedback from customers and benefits from extremely positive reviews from both locals and visitors to the village. Although the business is trading with good profit at present we believe that income could be increased with additional marketing as very little is currently done along with the introduction of breakfast service and increased opening hours as the business currently trades with short lunch opening times.

This impressive and extremely well fitted landmark semi-detached stone built character property has been sympathetically converted, modernised and extended over the years whilst retaining many attractive original features. The premises provide outstanding and highly functional internal business accommodation to the ground floor which briefly comprises an inviting public vestibule entrance into a charming and welcoming public lounge bar with a wealth of exposed original timber and stonework, feature spotlighting, wood-burning stove in original open fireplace. The main bar area, in turn, affords easy access through to the property's delightful timber-and glazed purpose-built dedicated conservatory dining extension with feature quarry-tiled flooring throughout for easy cleaning, fully equipped waiter service station and stylish furnishings, which is served by a fully fitted and extensively equipped commercial kitchen with extraction system housing ample stainless-steel work surfaces, storage units, a fully equipped preparation/washing-up kitchen area with fitted sink unit and dishwasher and a full range of well maintained, industry standard catering appliances. Further ancillary internal business accommodation to the ground floor consists of a fully disabled compliant cloakroom/WC for customers. Further ancillary business accommodation to the first floor consists of all the usual separate male and female washroom/WC facilities for customers.

Situated on the upper floor of the building is accommodation which the current owners are using for staff but could also be used for owner operator should they wish.This area comprises of a double bedroom and bathroom.
