Property Description


An exciting opportunity has arisen to acquire a lifestyle business, or indeed large family home, in one of the most beautiful areas of the West Highlands. The current owners have created a very successful guest house business, with the flexibility of private owner’s accommodation included.

Westerlees is further complemented by the stunning  open views towards Loch nan Ceall and the Small Isles of Eigg, Rum and Muck and has been superbly upgraded and modernised in recent months to offer a fantastic property.

Property Description

Occupying a prime position in the much sough-after village of Arisaig, the sale of Westerlees Bed & Breakfast offers a fantastic opportunity to purchase an extremely impressive detached villa with successful business in place, set in the heart of this beautiful part of the West coast of Scotland. Enjoying spectacular open views, sweeping across the surrounding countryside towards Loch nan Ceall and the Small Isles of Eigg, Rum and Muck beyond, Westerlees has been thoughtfully upgraded and modernised in recent months to create a superb business and family home. In excellent order throughout, the property has been designed and built to capitalise on the views that surround it whilst benefitting from double glazing, oil fired central heating and an open fire in the spacious, loch-view lounge. Due to the versatile accommodation arranged conveniently over two floors, the property could offer a real lifestyle business opportunity, great family home or idyllic holiday retreat.

In addition to the property itself, there is a detached garage and generous garden to all four sides, laid to a mixture of lawn and new gravel for ease of maintenance. A recently extended raised decked walkway and terrace embrace two sides of the property, taking in the best of the views and providing an excellent relaxation area to capture the beautiful sunsets the area is renowned for.

The Business

Westerlees is a family run business and due to the current owners’ preference, typically trades throughout the year. However, this Visit Scotland accredited 4* business easily has the potential to increase trade with the addition of evening meals. This successful business has a high reputation and a website already in place – and has a 5 Star Excellence rating from Trip Advisor. The business is sold as a going concern, including furnished guest accommodation, fixtures and fittings as defined in a separate inventory, functional website, pre-existing bookings and the business goodwill. At the owner’s discretion and following initial viewings, accounts will be available to seriously interested parties.


The property is accessed through an open entrance leading to an ample gravelled parking area and detached garage. Benefiting an from garden grounds to all sides, an elevated wooden deck wraps round two sides of the house, providing a spacious seating/entertaining area, capitalising on the stunning loch views. The remainder of ground is laid to a mixture of natural lawn, gravel and tarmac, offset with mature trees and shrubs.


Arisaig is a popular village, situated on the road between Fort William and Mallaig – ”The Road to the Isles”. With its coastal situation, it is an ideal location from which to explore this extremely attractive part of the Highlands & Inner Isles. The village itself has a marina, hotel, restaurants, shop, post office, two churches, primary school etc with further facilities available at Mallaig, including a secondary school, and Fort William – to which there is a link by both road and rail.
