Clan Morrison represents a superb opportunity to acquire a former hotel with self contained apartment and semi detached bungalow in a stunning location overlooking Loch Sunart. This unique development opportunity sits in spacious grounds extending to about 5 acres and includes a tidal island Innis Nam Fèorag or Island of the Squirrels and large rock, Eilean nan Gad. In addition to the hotel is a further large plot of land extending to about 14.5 acres with planning permission (17/01090/PiP) for a one and a half storey property. The former hotel and plot are being offered for sale as a whole or in two lots. As well as rough shooting within the grounds for woodcock and wild fowl, there is stalking for red deer. Loch Sunart also offers excellent fishing including for salmon, sea trout, taupe, pollock, skate and flounders.
The hotel, part of which was originally a manse, was run successfully until 2005 by the current owners. Subject to the usual planning consents, the property offers scope for development in a number of ways including as self contained accommodation, bunk house or guest house, with the former manager’s property – a spacious four bedroom bungalow – providing immediate onsite accommodation if required. Known and enjoyed for its stunning scenery and varied wildlife, the Ardnamurchan Peninsula remains a popular destination for visitors.
The area offers a choice of attractions including a distillery, castles, lighthouse and visitor centre, as well as walks, sandy beaches, cycling and a range of water sports such as boating, kayaking and fishing. The dramatic and comparatively remote landscape is also a haven for otters, deer, pine martens, wildcats and both the golden and white tailed eagles, all of which can be seen enjoying this natural habitat. A range of local services are available at Salen with its licensed store and hotel with restaurant. At Acharacle is a general store, post office, bakery, garage and medical practice. The village also has a primary school with secondary schooling at Strontian. The area is linked by a ferry service from Ardgour to Corran about 9 miles south of Fort William with its wide range of shops and train services to Glasgow and London. From Oban to the south are frequent ferry services to the Outer Isles as well as rail services to Glasgow and Edinburgh.
