Salen HotelA landmark Scottish village hotel and pub, located in an area of rural Scotland famed for its seclusion and natural beauty has just been brought to the market.

The Salen Hotel is situated in the village of Salen, overlooking Loch Sunart, at the head of the famed Ardnamurchan Peninsula, the most westerly point on the British mainland, and is available for sale through one of Scotland’s leading property specialists, Bell Ingram.

With an enviable reputation for being a focal point of the village and proving popular with visitors from both near and far, the family-run loch side property trades extremely well.

Substantially improved over the  last few years by owners Jonathan & Julia Peill the subjects of sale comprise the hotel with a cosy public bar, beautifully presented formal dining room and a newly built, oak-framed conservatory offering views towards the loch, along with five en-suite letting bedrooms and private owner’s accommodation.  In addition, there is an adjoining two-bedroom self-catering cottage completed in 2008 and further workshop/stores, together with a beer garden and barbeque area and ample on-site car parking.

Gregor King, Consultant at Bell Ingram, said: “Properties like The Salen Hotel, are a one-off.

“Its idyllic location in one of the most remote and unspoilt areas of Scotland ensure tourists from around the world are enticed by its stunning surroundings throughout the year.

“The hotel – which has been painstakingly restored and upgraded over the last few years – is full of character.  The full hotel has been renovated.

“The property is in walk in condition but there is also plenty of scope for further development to maximise the potential of the business.”

Dating back to the end of the 19th century, the striking, stone-built hotel is set over two storeys and attic with a pitched, slate roof.  The original house has been tastefully extended to the front and rear giving a modern, contemporary feel whilst maintaining the traditional features.

The property comes with a fully equipped commercial kitchen and modern preparation area, chill store and beer and wine cellar as well as a laundry.

Private accommodation is currently housed on the attic floor which includes two bedrooms and a bathroom with additional private living space on the first floor. To the rear of the property there is a newly built garage comprising workshops and stores on the ground floor, with a useful apartment at first floor, offering potential to be transformed into further private quarters.

The surroundings offer a bountiful array of activities from walking and cycling to sailing and country sports such as fishing, shooting and stalking.

The property is currently being marketed at £745,000 plus stock at valuation.

Established in 1899, Bell Ingram is a multi-disciplined firm of chartered surveyors, forestry managers, estate agents, architects, building surveyors and energy specialists. With more than 130 professional staff across 11 UK offices they provide local knowledge with national coverage.
