Property description

Tenure: Freehold


The Loch Ness Guesthouse is a detached two- storey stone built property with a modern extension to the rear. The building has been extensively refurbished by the current owner and includes 12 en-suite letting bedrooms, along with a breakfast room and residents' lounge area.

There is significant potential for development of the site to provide additional letting accommodation, both to the rear of the main building and within the grounds to the rear.


The Loch Ness Guesthouse is situated in Fort Augustus at the southern end of Loch Ness.

The property sits on the A82, one of the busiest tourist routes in the Highlands leading from Glasgow to Inverness through Glencoe and Fort William.

Fort Augustus is home to the famous locks, on the 60 mile long Caledonian Canal, linking Inverness with Fort William to the south west.

The village is a popular stop off area for tourists and visitors and popular as a base for cyclists and walkers. Drive time to Glasgow is approximately 3.5 hours and Inverness is 1 hours' drive north along the western shore of Loch Ness.

Internal Details

Access is taken from the side elevation on the modern extension, off the car park to the side of the property. This leads to the residents' lounge area and reception which has a tiled floor finish and a selection of comfortable furniture. Views out to the garden are provided via full height glazed sections.

Fixtures & Fittings

All fixtures and fittings required for the continued operation of the guesthouse will be included in the price as a going concern.

Letting Accommodation

There are 12 en -suite letting bedrooms provided , split over the ground and first floor levels. All rooms are fitted to a high standard throughout reflecting the 4 Star standard awarded by the Scottish Tourist Board.

External Details

The site extends back from the main road, to include a private garden to the rear, and car park with space for eight cars.

The Opportunity

The Loch Ness Guesthouse presents a rare opportunity to purchase a fully refurbished and operational freehold business, in the heart of Fort Augustus. The popularity of the Highlands of Scotland and the increased visitor numbers travelling up to Inverness and beyond, has led to increased occupancy numbers and room rates remain high, particularly during the summer months. The guesthouse is a perfect opportunity for an owner operator to take on a fully refurbished business with no need for capital expenditure.


The business is currently operated under management with minimum requirement for staff other than cleaning facilities.

Trading Information

Trading information will be provided to seriously interested parties on viewing the property.

Development Potential

The guesthouse sits on a plot of land that could be developed to the rear of the main building, STPP. The acreage available may allow for some lodge development in the garden or additionally the hill to the rear of the property heading down towards the camp site to the rear (unrelated to the subject property)

Business Rates
