THE BUSINESS

Huntingtower is a family run business and due to the current owners’ preference, typically trades from Easter through to November at just below the VAT threshold. However, this Visit Scotland accredited 4* Gold business easily has the potential to run all year-round. This extremely successful business has a high reputation, with Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence and a website www.huntingtowerlodge.com already in place.
