Business Description
Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this stunning, well-established “Visit Scotland 4-Star rated’’ guest house business with an enviable reputation.

Braeside Guest House has been trading for many years under the careful ownership of our clients and only now is being offered for sale due to our client’s desire to retire from the industry.

The business has an excellent reputation with guests for the high-quality service, excellent accommodation and delicious cuisine, which has resulted in a loyal client base, with a lot of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals all resulting in some superb trip advisor & google reviews.

The business attracts bookings from all four corners of the globe with many of these being repeat visitors and is popular with tourists, golf & wedding parties, walkers, fishing parties cyclists, & one-off weekend breaks.

The guest house is one of the largest in the area and so can also accommodate the “overflow” bookings when required from other B & B’s located close by.

Over the last few years the guest house itself has undergone a programme of refurbishment and can now be found in outstanding condition throughout.

The turnover is generated by offering 5 guest rooms, all of which have en-suite facilities.

Rooms 4 & 5 are front facing with the added benefit of spectacular views over Loch Feochan.

Breakfast and evening meals are served by our clients in the spacious and sunny lounge/ dining room with a beautiful feature Palladian arch window, and again with excellent views over the loch, with our clients only using the best quality ingredients and locally sourced produce where possible.

The guest house also benefits from having a bar area for residents and during the warmer months they can take advantage of the pleasant external seating that is on offer.

There is scope to further increase turn over with the introduction of additional online partner booking sites and perhaps national press marketing to attract and grow the weekend break experience.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and exciting business to the next level.

Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this very well run & immaculate business.
