Scottish hotel up for sale for the first time in 40 years


Heathbank Hotel on the Isle of Barra in the Outer Hebrides is set to change hands after more than 40 years ownership by the MacLeod family, following the decision by Joe and Kathleen MacLeod to retire.

It is the first time the hotel has come on the market since opening its doors in 1974, which saw the late 19th century mission house, initially, converted into a small hotel with bar and restaurant facilities.

With its popularity among visitors to Barra growing over the years, today, the 3-star VisitScotland Heathbank Hotel provides five letting bedrooms, along with sizeable lounge bar and separate dining room.

Selling agent Colliers International is inviting offers around £375,000.

Alistair Letham, a director in the UK hotels agency team at Colliers International, said: “Heathbank Hotel is a very well established business, trading on a seasonal basis only, that provides an excellent and profitable living. This is the first time in two generations that the hotel has come on the market and represents an ideal opportunity for new family owners looking for a quintessential lifestyle business, on what has to be one of the most beautiful small islands in the UK."
