A 23-bedroom hotel overlooking the magnificent Loch Linnhe on the west coast of Scotland is heading to auction, after 18 months on the open market.
Situated on the edge of popular Fort William, Loch Linnhe House has been up for sale since May 2022. Having failed to secure a buyer, the former hotel will now go under the hammer with Auction House Scotland, with a guide price set at £599,000.
Enjoying stunning views of the Ardgour Hills, the property sits close to the banks of Loch Linnhe on the A82 Achintore Road. Less than a five-minute drive from Fort William town centre, the location is advertised as “a perfect base” for discovering the Scottish Highlands.
Although it stopped welcoming guests in 2020, the hotel still offers 23 double bedrooms with en-suites, along with private parking and gardens.
Marketed by Auction House as a “unique development opportunity”, the former 3-star Loch Linnhe Hotel is being sold with approved planning permission to covert the site into fourteen luxury apartments.
Planning permission granted to the site, which is in place until 2024, allows for the demolition of all existing buildings. For one bidder willing to take on the work, the hotel could be updated and transformed with the construction of two new detached buildings, each comprising of seven two-bedroom holiday apartments.
The impressive site is expected to appeal to developers, hoteliers and short term let providers, thanks to its popular tourist location.
Described as the “outdoor capital of the UK”, the area is world famous for its huge range of sporting and recreational activities, including two of Scotland’s five ski resorts.
Just a stone’s throw from one of the highest mountains in the British Isles, Loch Linnhe House boasts awe-inspiring views and countless adventures right on its doorstep.
With its prime location and full planning permission already in place, this remarkable property presents an outstanding development opportunity. Full planning details and related documents can be viewed on the Highlands Council website using the reference: 20/02605/FUL.
Loch Linnhe House goes up for sale by public auction with Auction House Scotland on Thursday 14th December.
