Advert ref: 1135SAF

The Gun Lodge Hotel is a charming example of a traditional Highland Hotel. The property is nestled in the quiet and historic village of Ardersier, conveniently located three miles from the airport and 25 minutes from the centre of Inverness. The property is also within close distance of the world-renowned Castle Stuart Golf Links.

This exciting opportunity has traded successfully under its current owners since 2008. The business trades well, with a busy summer season in 2023 and plenty of forward bookings going forward.

It is a genuine wish to retire from the hospitality trade that has resulted in the property being reluctantly presented to the market. The Gun Lodge Hotel comprises 11 charismatic En-suite bedrooms, a staff annexe with 2 bedrooms that could be utilised as further letting rooms and a 2-bed self-contained spacious owners flat.

The popular Cromal Hill Restaurant boasts 20 covers, additionally the whisky lounge has a further 16 covers for guest to relax in a cosy setting. Externally, there is a series out outbuildings which may besuitable for development, an external seating area and an attractive owner's garden.  

Ardersier is a popular tourist spot within close proximity of Fort George, which remains an active base for the British Army. Currently a £300m development is being undertaken on the 450-acre Port of Ardersier which will create 3000 jobs and undoubtedly have a positive impact on the wider area going forward.
