Bruce and Co. are delighted to offer for
sale The Knowe Guest House is a
beautifully presented Guest House
situated in Callander in 'Loch Lomond
and Trossachs National Park'. The
business has been awarded a 4* rating
by the Scottish Tourist Board and is
highly rated on Trip Advisor where it has
nothing short of good reviews.

The Knowe Guest House provides luxury bed
and breakfast accommodation in a
commanding property with elegant
interior making the business very popular
with a lot of repeat customers. The
business has been under the very caring
ownership of our clients for 15 years
during which time they have carefully
carried out substantial refurbishments
throughout the entire property to a very
high standard. They are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to
their impending wish to retire.

The Knowe Guest House enjoys a generous turnover
and not only provides the owners with an
excellent source of income but also a
wonderful home. The property truly is
superbly presented and can only be
appreciated in full by a viewing. The
business enjoys high occupancy levels
and could trade successfully all year
round although our clients have chosen
to focus on the main season from Easter
through to November offering plenty of
potential to increase turnover should new
owners wish to increase the trading

The property also has several
formations for letting accommodation with
the current owners choosing to let 4
bedrooms but the house has potential to
increase this depending on the new
owners needs.


The Knowe Guest House is perfectly
positioned in the town of Callander,
Scotland, making it the ideal base for
exploring surrounding areas, including
Loch Lomond and The Trossachs
National Park. Callander is situated on
the River Teith and lies 14 miles North
West of Stirling. The town is located in
the former county of Perthshire and is a
popular tourist stop to and from the
Highlands and Islands. The town serves
as the Eastern Gateway to the Loch
Lomond and the Trossachs National
Park, the first National Park in Scotland.
Due to its location it is often referred to as
the "Gateway to the Highlands". The
former St. Kessog's Church is currently
the Visit Scotland Centre, offering tourist
information for the area. Oban, Fort
William, Glencoe, Pitlochry, Perth,
Stirling, St Andrews, Edinburgh and
Glasgow are all within day visiting
distance, allowing return to Callander in
time for an evening meal. Nearby are the
Lochs and Hills of the Trossachs, an area
of outstanding natural beauty which still
offers peace and tranquillity. Part of
Queen Elizabeth Forest Park
encompassing some of Scotland's best -
loved locations, legendary Loch Katrine
and magnificent Ben Lomond.


The business premises occupy an
impressive detached building, with an
