Tenure: Leasehold

The Shower of Herring restaurant offers an excellent opportunity for any prospective buyer to start their own business. The business is set within the exclusive holiday resort of the Melfort Club on the popular west coast of Scotland. The Melfort Village is a hamlet of 32 properties, which provide time share and holiday accommodation for 50 weeks per year. The business has operated since the 1980s, with only four operators within the period. The venue has now been placed on the market as the previous operators have retired. The business benefits from all year round custom from both holiday guests, owners, local residents and tourists. The business is not limited to the guests of the resort, and is open to non-residents.

Melfort Village was created as a holiday ownership village in the 1980's. The 32 cottages were restored from the ruins of the "gunpowder village" and farm buildings, and transformed into beautifully appointed luxury holiday cottages, a restaurant, excellent on-site leisure facilities including heated indoor pool, sauna, hot tub and beauty rooms as well as well kept gardens and grounds for all to enjoy.

Today this secluded holiday village near Oban on the West Coast is one of the most successful holiday ownership and self-catering operations in Scotland.


Loch Melfort makes Kilmelford a popular haven for the yachting community visiting the islands of the Inner Hebrides and Mull and Iona. The surrounding countryside has many miles of excellent walks with stunning views over the land and coast so it's hard not to fall in love with this place instantly. We have an enviable reputation for wild brown trout fishing on our hill lochs and there is also sea fishing offering a great variety of species.
