Former Highland Hotel on the Market for Just £150,000


SAVVY property developers would be forgiven for thinking they’d discovered the sale of the century thanks to a former Highland hotel going on the market for offers over £150,000.

The Bridge Hotel, in the popular tourist village of Bonar Bridge, stretches over four floors and offers buyers the chance to own a 19-bedroom property for far less than the average UK house price.

The property – on the market with Perth-based land and estate agents Bell Ingram provides scope for a range of business development opportunities.

It has been trading until recently and boasts stunning views to the Kyle of Sutherland from the front as well as a large car park to the rear.

The property does require a degree of upgrade and modernisation, but could represent a fantastic opportunity for discerning developers to transform it into a thriving tourist accommodation or well-appointed apartments.

Joanne Stennett, Estate Agent for Bell Ingram, said: “The Bridge Hotel represents the type of opportunity that doesn’t come along very often.

“To have the chance to buy such a substantial property is an attraction itself, but to get the chance to purchase it for such a fantastic price is truly incredible.

“Although it is in need of modernisation, the property features a host of large and spacious rooms and will make for a really exciting development opportunity.”

Accessed from the main street via the lobby area, the hotel features a dining room, lounge bar and function room on its lower level.

There is also a games room and public bar, as well as a catering kitchen with food stores and male and female toilets.

The first floor houses 12 bedrooms, each with either en-suites or shower rooms. There is also a resident’s lounge, complete with a full-size billiards table.

On the second floor, there are a further six en-suite rooms with a separate bathroom, and on the third floor is the manager’s accommodation, with a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and shower room.
The Bridge Hotel is located in the centre of Bonar Bridge, with a host of local amenities on its door step.
It’s just 12 miles from the Royal Burgh of Dornoch, famous as home to the world-renowned Royal Dornoch Golf Course.
The Sutherland area provides a mecca for outdoor pursuits and for those looking for links to the city, Inverness is just under an hour’s drive away.

A viewing appointment can be arranged through Bell Ingram’s Inverness office on 01463 717 799.
Established 117 years ago, Bell Ingram has 130 professional staff across 11 UK offices including: farm, estate and forestry managers; chartered surveyors, estate agents, architects, planners, and building surveyors; and tourism, GIS mapping, and renewable energy specialists.
