Unique Opportunity to Buy Former Tourist Information Centre

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

A FORMER visitor information centre in one of Scotland’s prime tourist spots, offers a truly unique opportunity for commercial buyers looking for their next venture.

On the market with property experts Bell Ingram, the incredible property in the tranquil fishing resort of Lochinver on the west coast of Scotland is set on the North Coast 500 route and boasts stunning views across the loch.

Formerly known as the Assynt Visitor Centre, the property is on the market for offers in excess of £200,000.

It represents an ideal opportunity for businesses to take over a commercial unit which is ready-made to make use of immediately.

The large ground floor area features an office area and a store room, as well as both female and male toilets. The upstairs mezzanine level also has a storage area but the main feature is the large picture window, which looks out onto the majestic view of Loch Inver.

The former tourist centre offers buyers the opportunity to make their mark on a unique property set against a backdrop of rolling hills and a clear blue loch.

The building’s exterior looks out onto the main street, and is part of the North Coast 500 route, which takes drivers around some of the most stunning scenery in the Highlands.

Joanne Stennett, Senior Estate Agent for Bell Ingram, said: “It is a magnificent property and certainly not one that we would see come onto the market very often.

“It is set in a wonderful location with the amazing view of Loch Inver which of course makes it a popular part of the North Coast 500 route, with people travelling from far and wide to see the amazing scenery and of course, visit the nearby businesses.

“It would suit a commercial buyer looking for a space for their business. It is not every day that the chance to buy such a unique building in such an incredible location comes along.”

Lochinver sits on a sheltered bay north of Ullapool and is split into three parts; the harbour, the village and Baddidarrach, along the shore of the loch.

The huge fish market is popular with those passing through on the North Coast 500 route while the village is also home to Highland stoneware, one of the Highland’s most distinctive potteries.

Established in 2014, the North Coast 500 is a route of just over 500 miles of stunning coastal scenery around the Highlands, taking in towns like Ullapool, Durness, John O’Groats, Dornoch and Inverness.

A viewing appointment for the former tourist centre can be arranged through Bell Ingram’s Inverness office on 01463 717 799.

Established 117 years ago, Bell Ingram has 130 professional staff across 11 UK offices including: farm, estate and forestry managers; chartered surveyors, estate agents, architects, planners, and building surveyors; and tourism, GIS mapping, and renewable energy specialists.
