McEwan Fraser Legal are delighted to offer a rare opportunity for anyone seeking to get away from it all to purchase an easily run and profitable business. This attractive property comes with plenty of income potential, peat cutting and grazing rights on Dunnet Head at the most northerly point of the UK mainland. An ideal location for outdoor activities such as fishing, horse riding, cycling, kayaking and walking. The current owners have developed a number of walking routes in the area with maps, photos and route cards which are used to market the business.
The business is a mixture of self contained and bed and breakfast trade with plenty of room for expansion i.e. organizing activity holidays and expansion of the café facilities. Since taking over the business in 2000, the emphasis has been to encourage visitors to stay in the area longer and the owners have worked with the Highland Council, Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), and other bodies to develop an ideal location for people to relax and enjoy the great outdoors.
The business has been run on a seasonal basis between April and September, but there is plenty of scope for an extension to this.
There are three letting rooms, two double en-suite rooms and one twin room overlooking the rock stacks of Brough Bay out to the Pentland Firth, a separate toilet in a private lobby, a lounge, kitchen, separate bathroom, the old Post Office which housed the restaurant/information centre. The owners´ living accommodation consists of radio room/boiler room, kitchen, conservatory and bedroom. There is also a caravan and garden. The property also benefits from oil-fired central heating.
The outbuildings consisting of a large, modern agricultural shed and stable yard with two stables are included in the sale along with pasture paddocks to the front and rear of the property. In total this amounts to approximately five acres (about two hectares).
There is potential for further business development, including the potential of building another residence on site (subject to obtaining the relevant planning permissions).
This property would also make a comfortable family home.
((- The property is also listed in many guide books, and the owners have also developed their own guide book which is available at http://www.dunnethead.co.uk ))
