A stunning Highland inn with its own restaurant has just gone on the market and could be the ideal escape for those looking to start afresh surrounded by beautiful Scottish scenery.
The Kilberry Inn in the picturesque village of Tarbert in Argyll comes with five rooms, a bar and a restaurant, and is located with views across Loch Caolisport to the islands of Gigha and Jura.
It’s been placed on the market for just £450,000 and could a dream opportunity for someone looking to start their own business on Scotland’s beautiful and dramatic west coast away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Agents Graham + Sibbald say that Kilberry is a “charming and characterful” country inn, with the Argyll area a very popular destination for the “discerning tourist and holiday-maker”.
The white-washed building with its distinctive red-painted corrugated roof and iconic red phone box (which has been transformed into the quirky “wee bar”) is a welcome sight for many.
Alistair Letham, who is looking after the sale said: “The relative, initial, simplicity of Kilberry Inn belies the quality of the property, and business, once ventured inside, with the delightful bar & restaurant and the very comfortable five bedrooms.
“What makes The Kilberry Inn perfect for resident owners is the inclusion of a spacious separate house; making the Inn an ideal ‘home & income’ business.”
He added that The Kilberry Inn offers a “superb opportunity” for new owners, looking for an idyllic lifestyle with a business which is already well established but offers scope “for further business development and growth”.
After 18 years of running the hugely popular restaurant with rooms, current owners David Wilson and Clare Johnson are selling so they can retire from the trade, they said: “After almost 18 hugely rewarding years at the Inn it just feels like the right time to now let someone else enjoy The Kilberry.”
