Former hunting lodge overlooking Loch Ness is sold

A former hunting lodge with panoramic views over Loch Ness has been sold to a local buyer.

Ian Barrett is the new owner of the 15-bedroom, three-star Inchnacardoch Lodge hotel which is a short drive from Fort Augustus in Inverness-shire. Barrett previously owned the Niaroo Guest House in Fort Augustus.

The hotel (whose name means Island of the Cherry Tree in Gaelic) was built in 1878 as a hunting lodge for Lord Lovat and has served as a hotel since 1953.

It enjoys a strong tourist business in season and local trade throughout the year.

Jan and Bob Johnstone will run the hotel and plan to extend the business to provide year-long service to both locals and visitors.

The Edinburgh office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the hotel off an asking price of £650,000 on behalf of the previous owner Guy Coombes.
