SAVVY property developers would be forgiven for thinking they’d discovered the sale of the century thanks to a former Highland hotel going on the market for offers over £150,000.

The Bridge Hotel, in the popular tourist village of Bonar Bridge, stretches over four floors and offers buyers the chance to own a 19-bedroom property for far less than the average UK house price.

The property – on the market with Perth-based land and estate agents Bell Ingram provides scope for a range of business development opportunities.

It has been trading until recently and boasts stunning views to the Kyle of Sutherland from the front as well as a large car park to the rear.

The property does require a degree of upgrade and modernisation, but could represent a fantastic opportunity for discerning developers to transform it into a thriving tourist accommodation or well-appointed apartments.

Joanne Stennett, Estate Agent for Bell Ingram, said: “The Bridge Hotel represents the type of opportunity that doesn’t come along very often.

“To have the chance to buy such a substantial property is an attraction itself, but to get the chance to purchase it for such a fantastic price is truly incredible.

“Although it is in need of modernisation, the property features a host of large and spacious rooms and will make for a really exciting development opportunity.”

Accessed from the main street via the lobby area, the hotel features a dining room, lounge bar and function room on its lower level.

There is also a games room and public bar, as well as a catering kitchen with food stores and male and female toilets.

The first floor houses 12 bedrooms, each with either en-suites or shower rooms. There is also a resident’s lounge, complete with a full-size billiards table.

On the second floor, there are a further six en-suite rooms with a separate bathroom, and on the third floor is the manager’s accommodation, with a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and shower room.

The Bridge Hotel is located in the centre of Bonar Bridge, with a host of local amenities on its door step.

It’s just 12 miles from the Royal Burgh of Dornoch, famous as home to the world-renowned Royal Dornoch Golf Course.

The Sutherland area provides a mecca for outdoor pursuits and for those looking for links to the city, Inverness is just under an hour’s drive away

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.
