The sale of Burnbank House and Burnbank Lodges offers a rare opportunity to acquire a profitable lifestyle business in one of the most beautiful and spectacular areas of the Western Highlands. The current owners live in the main house and have developed a successful self-catering business – with 12 lodges. The subjects for sale are further complemented by 4.5 acres of land including river frontage with fishing rights and spectacular landscaped grounds with an abundance of wildlife and native woodland.
Located in Spean Bridge, approximately 10 miles from Fort William and offers a range of amenities including shops, hotels, railway station, restaurants, primary school etc. The location, within the heart of spectacular Highland scenery, means that it is well placed to take advantage of all the leisure and pleasure activities which the area has to offer, including golfing, mountain biking and skiing.
Peacefully situated within charming garden grounds, Burnbank House enjoys stunning views sweeping over its private grounds towards to the River Spean. The location is further complemented by the property itself which has been designed to capitalise on the location, with a raised veranda and large decking area. In excellent order throughout, the property benefits from oil fired central heating and double glazing (with the exception of two glazed panels).
Burnbank Lodges are a family run business which benefits from all year-round trading. This successful business has a high reputation, which is further compounded by a 3 Star accreditation from VisitScotland. The lodges are currently run to a high occupancy level and are available fully furnished with all the fixtures and fittings.
