Scourie Guest House in Sutherland has been privately owned and operated for four years.
The property near the NC500 consists of three en-suite rental rooms, as well as two owners bedrooms, including a large double bedroom on the ground floor which is described as having a “spectacular sea view” .
In addition to its own private gardens, the guesthouse has flat, hilltop land suitable for the development of a small lodge, subject to planning permission.
Drysdale & Company, the commercial agency specializing in the hospitality industry, said offers of more than Â£ 375,000 were being sought for the company.
Current owner Pete Hammond, who runs the guesthouse with his wife, Liz, said: âThis is a great business opportunity. We are confident that with their area of ââexpertise, Drysdale and Company can find us a buyer.
âHaving never run a hotel business before, we absolutely loved this location, investing a lot of our time in updating the guesthouse to provide the best guest experience and create a lovely Highland home.
âWe had set a five-year deadline to improve accommodation in the area and fully appreciate Highland life, having vacationed in Assynt every year for the past ten years.
“We think we have achieved what we wanted to do and, as we are about to become grandparents for the very first time, we think the time has come to be closer to the family.”
Stuart Drysdale, who created Drysdale & Company, said: âPete and Liz are to be congratulated on what they have put into Scourie Guest House. This is a very attractive business proposition, and we expect there will be great interest, especially given the continued popularity of stays which will continue into next year and beyond.
âIt’s a business that will thrive on people who love the outdoors and want to share their experiences of the region with their customers. Pete and Liz have seen many customers return for longer to experience what this part of the Highlands has to offer.
