It also comes complete with one-bedroom flat and staff accommodation.

Alistair Letham, a director in the UK hotels agency team at Colliers International, said: “This attractive property in the north west Highlands on the road to Skye trades on a seasonal basis and attracts a good level of custom and profitability. New owners also have the choice and opportunity to extend the season of trading to all year round. A private house, for resident owners, is available by separate negotiation.”
