Property description

Proudly positioned, elevated overlooking Brodick Bay, 'Strathwhillan House'' is a very impressive, traditional villa, which was originally constructed around the 1850s on a mature and well-manicured plot. The property was previously used as a nursing home and has subsequently been used as a Bed and Breakfast since 1993, but would equally make a wonderful and spacious family/holiday home. It enjoys plenty of repeat custom due to its excellent and convenient location on this stunning Island. Just a five-minute walk from the ferry. There is no doubt it would still be suitable for a number of uses, going forward, including hospitality, residential, institutional or development within the grounds (STPP).

The property is set over two levels with the ground level being given to guests and the first floor for owner's accommodation. It has the added bonus of a well maintained, two bedroom, attached bungalow (ideal for holiday rentals, permanent let or owners' quarters) to the left of the host property, which provides additional and comfortable living accommodation

This property is unique. The traditional building has been well maintained both internally and externally, to create fantastic and flexible accommodation, which only a viewing will qualify, conforming to current fire regulations. The property is surrounded by easily maintained gardens. There is a gated driveway to the front providing off road parking for a number of guest vehicles. There is additional parking to the rear with access to a detached garage.

The sale of Strathwhillan House offers a superb opportunity to purchase a well-presented business, which is trading well, with huge potential for further expansion.

NB - All services shared with the main house

The bungalow is currently let on a long term let, realising £600 PCM, including services. We understand the bungalow can remain tenanted or be vacated, offering separate owners' accommodation. This would allow the upper floor of the main house to offer additional Bed and Breakfast, letting rooms or self-catering holiday lets.

Strathwhillan House is connected to mains electricity and water. The property is heated by oil central heating.

Strathwhillan House Bed and Breakfast is an extremely well-run business that has been run by the current proprietors since 2006. The business was established in 1993 and purchased by the current owner in 2006. The property has been placed on the market due to the current proprietor's wish to retire from the tourist trade. The business trades throughout the year and benefits from a good mix of local and tourist trade. Room rates vary from £60-£89 depending upon room and season.

We are advised that trading accounts are available to all interested parties

The business trades with the benefit of a full licence and conforms to all fire regulations.

Fixtures and Fittings
A full inventory will be completed to detail all personal items excluded from the sale or items subject to a lease.

The present owner has already publicised the establishment, locally, nationally and internationally via This means that anyone wishing to continue operating as a Bed and Breakfast establishment, will 'hit the ground running' as they will have immediate income/bookings at their disposal.

The price will be complete with goodwill and trade contents but excludes personal items. Stock at valuation.

For reasons of confidentiality, no direct approach may be made to the business. All viewings must be arranged through McEwan Fraser Legal

Additional Information
Only the upper accommodation in Strathwhillan House is rated for council tax. The ground floor accommodation and A'Chir are commercially rated and at present North Ayrshire Council give small business relief, resulting in no payment.
