A truly unique opportunity has arisen to acquire Ceol na Mara Guest House, a truly stunning 4 letting room licensed guest house that occupies a prominent and elevated position on the east coast of Harris, overlooking a beautiful sea loch. Run by the current owners since 2017 the property has been completely renovated and refurbished to the highest of standards, providing luxury guest accommodation in an ideal location for the many guests to explore both Harris and Lewis. Trading for around 6 months of the year, the business operates at near 100% occupancy during this time. There is great scope to expand this business and enhance revenues. Ceol na Mara provides additional opportunity as it comes with its own 50-acre croft that surrounds the property.
Lewis and Harris form the largest and most northerly islands of the Western Isles, with a population of approximately 21,000. Harris is an area of mountains, lochs, coastal islands, crystal-clear azure blue seas, and beautiful white sandy beaches. Ceol na Mara is a short distance from Tarbert, the main settlement of the Isle of Harris, which has a range of village amenities including 2 hotels and a number of small shops. Tarbert has a secondary school with free transport, the Harris Sports Centre with a swimming pool, and the ferry terminal to the Isle of Skye. Stornoway, about a 1 hours’ drive away, has Lews Castle College, University of the Highlands and Islands, and a wider range of shops and facilities along with its airport and ferry terminal to Ullapool and mainland Scotland.
The coastline is dotted with beaches ranging in size from the small to the 3 miles wide Luskentyre and Scarista beaches, all with stunning views over clear blue seas to the neighbouring islands of the Outer Hebrides. Walks to the beaches are along the paths and tracks that crisscross the machair, the fertile low-lying ground along the coast, which is abundant with wildflowers and birdlife, seals, sea otters, and including golden and white-tailed eagles which are regularly sighted in the area.
