It is being sold by London-based property investors, who bought the Royal in 2005 as part of a move into northern Britain and is now looking to rationalise their property portfolio.

Thurso is a busy and sizeable community, with a railway terminus and the main ferry point to Orkney.

Alistair Letham, a director in the UK hotels agency team at Colliers International, said: “The Royal Hotel is a well established business in the centre of Thurso and draws its custom from a mixture of commercial, leisure trade and local business. It has a solid base of turnover and good levels of profit and is ideal for experienced hoteliers or for a small group looking to add to its existing portfolio.”
