Sonas B&B is a well run business that has been run by the current proprietors for since 2012. The property has been placed on the market due to the current proprietor’s impending wish to retire from the tourist trade. The business trades seasonally from mid-March until mid-October and its quality is reflected in the number of awards it currently holds such as achieving 4.5 out 5 on Trip Advisor and ranking in the top 10 Guest Houses on the island. Additional marketing is carried out through its own informative website

It enjoys much repeat custom, particularly due to its excellent location on the popular tourist destination of the Isle of Skye. Sonas offers an excellent opportunity to purchase a true lifestyle business, which would suit a couple looking to supplement their retirement income. The seasonal trade also generates scope for any new proprietors to increase trade by opening throughout the year as it is currently being run as a lifestyle business.

Skye, or the Isle of Skye, is the largest and most northerly major island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The island's peninsulas radiate from a mountainous centre dominated by the Cuillins, the rocky slopes of which provide some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in the country.

The Island has been occupied since the Mesolithic period and its history includes a time of Norse rule and a long period of domination by Clan MacLeod and Clan Donald.

The main industries are tourism, agriculture, fishing and forestry. Skye is part of the Highland Council local government area. The island's largest settlement is Portree, known for its picturesque harbour. There are links to various nearby islands by ferry and, since 1995, to the mainland by a road bridge. The abundant wildlife includes the golden eagle, red deer and Atlantic salmon. The local flora is dominated by heather moor, and there are nationally important invertebrate populations on the surrounding sea bed. Skye has provided the locations for various novels and feature films and is celebrated in poetry and song.

Skye has been voted the most desirable place to live in the UK with the tourist industry experiencing 'boom' at present.
