The Loch-side Strontian hotel in Argyll has been sold to Michelle Rundle from the South-east of England.
The Glasgow office of Colliers Robert Barry, which sold the freehold off a guide price of £535,000, said Rundle joined the 30% of purchasers buying Scottish hotels and pubs who come from outside the country.
The country inn sits in one acre of land alongside the deep, tidal Loch Sunart on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula to the west of Fort William
It offers eight en-suite bedrooms, a public bar and restaurant to seat up to 50 guests, a residents' lounge, a 20-seat breakfast room, and a function room that can cater for parties of up to 40 customers.
The Strontian hotel comes with owners' accommodation comprising two rooms and a bathroom, and detailed planning consent to build a family home on adjacent land.
