RARE 4-STAR LODGE HOTEL ON LOCH LOMOND HITS MARKET

The 4-star ‘Lodge on Loch Lomond’ has been brought to market by CBRE and Smith & Clough offering operators and investors a unique opportunity to acquire a luxury hotel on the banks of the famous Loch Lomond within Scotland’s Trossachs National Park.

Built, operated and in family ownership since 1991, the 47-bedroom Lodge on Loch Lomond occupies a coveted location with panoramic Loch and mountain views, a private jetty and beach within the Trossachs National Park. The hotel is accessed via the A82, one of Scotland’s most popular tourist routes and is just 33 miles from Glasgow and 20 minutes from Glasgow Airport.

With a consistently strong turnover and high occupancy rates, the hotel incorporates 47 luxury en-suite bedrooms and suites along with an AA Rosette restaurant. State-of-the-art conference, event and meeting facilities over three suites can accommodate 250 delegates each and the hotel holds a Civil Wedding Licence which also facilitates outdoor wedding ceremonies in the waterfront garden, the jetty or on the hotel beach.

Leisure facilities are available within the Amberspa leisure and Spa facility which includes a 16m swimming pool, with watersport activities available on Loch Lomond via the hotel jetty.

The hotel has a strong clientele and derives significant income from its substantial function and wedding offer. There is an opportunity for investors or operators to grow turnover by increasing room rates and additional capital expenditure. The hotel is being offered for sale by private treaty and offers are invited for the freehold interest in the property and business as a going concern. The beach and jetty are offered long leasehold.

Loch Lomond is a freshwater loch lying on the Highland Boundary Fault, often considered the boundary between the lowlands of Central Scotland and the Highlands. It is the largest inland stretch of water in Great Britain by surface area. The Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park was officially opened by Princess Anne in 2002 and 50% of Scotland’s population lives within an hour’s drive of the National Park.

The sale of the Lodge on Loch Lomond is an exceptional opportunity for operators and investors to acquire a successful luxury hotel in one of Scotland’s most impressive and sought-after locations. Hotels on the banks of the loch simply don’t come to market and the existing offering, coupled with the potential for future turnover growth, will ensure strong levels of investor interest from both within the UK and most likely overseas.
