Situated on the High Street in the heart of the village, the property was built in the late 18th century, featuring 12 letting bedrooms and ample trading space. The lounge bar, situated within the central part of the hotel, links through to the public bar and Crispins restaurant. With both fixed and moveable seating, the three trading areas can accommodate for approximately 120 covers throughout. Additionally, there is a beer garden to the side of the property. 

Externally, a private car park can accommodate for 15 cars and a detached outbuilding provides additional storage. Two bedroom owner’s accommodation with a lounge and separate kitchen is situated on the first floor of the property, in addition to a separate flat on the second floor, currently utilised as staff accommodation.

The village of Conon Bridge benefits from a train station, which is part of the Far North Line operated by Scotrail, providing services from Inverness to Thurso. Additionally, the village is located on the NC500, the increasingly popular route to Wester Ross, Sutherland, Caithness, Easter Ross and Inverness-shire. The surrounding area offers a number of activities, including walking, fishing, cycling and water sports, attracting tourists and outdoor enthusiasts to the Conon Bridge Hotel. The hotel is popular among both locals and residents of the surrounding villages and towns.

The current owners owned the business for over 10 years and have decided sell in order to retire from the trade. Having long established the hotel as the heart of the village, the hotel hosts village events and the food and drink offering is greatly appreciated and supported by the villagers. Numerous improvements have been made to the property over the years and there is still scope for further change that can achieve enhanced revenue streams.

Stuart Drysdale, Director at Christie & Co is handling the sale and comment, “Situated at the start of the increasingly popular NC500, Conon Bridge is perfectly placed to benefit from the increased tourist numbers in the Highlands. The property is the perfect size for a couple or owner operator to re-establish this business within the village, offering a quality food and beverage option along with comfortable letting rooms, perfect to get set for a trip around the northernmost section of the Scottish mainland.”

Christie & Co is seeking offers in the region of £285,000 for the freehold interest of Conon Bridge Hotel.
