Fresh Highland air, the rustle of the leaves on moss-clad oaks, eagles overflying the hills, the peat-brown waters of the majestic River Spean on the doorstep – all in all, it’s a fairly serene and peaceful place to go to work in the morning.
That’s the enviable setting Bunroy Park, one of Scotland’s most attractive lifestyle businesses, which is coming to market following an instruction to DM Hall Chartered Surveyors.
The beautifully situated holiday lodge, caravan and camping park in Roy Bridge extends to nine acres of lush woodland and tended grass, running down to where the River Roy flows into the tumbling Spean.
It is a successful and profitable business, being sold reluctantly as a consequence of illness, and it lies at the confluence of the main West Highland tourist routes, the A86 and the A82, which deliver hundreds of thousands of visitors each year from all over the world.
The park, which has eight lodges, 25 caravan pitches and 40 camping areas, is just a short stroll from Roy Bridge railway station, which has regular services to Fort William to the west and Glasgow to the south.
It also has an attractive owners’ lodge, with a lounge, kitchen and three bedrooms, from which the current owners have successfully operated the business for the past five years – running the lodges all year and the camping from April to October.
As well as the well-appointed lodges, Bunroy Park has also embraced the fashionable concept of “glamping”, or glamorous camping, with camping pods and a yurt, the traditional round tent of Mongolian herders.
The area is a magnet for tourists throughout the year. Lochaber is known as the Outdoor Capital of the UK, with the Aonach Mor gondola taking skiers to the Nevis Range in the winter and providing world-class mountain biking in the summer months.
The A82 is the main route to Skye and the A86 runs through some of the country’s most spectacular scenery to join the other major Highland artery, the A9, at Kingussie. Roy Bridge itself is an attractive community with a variety of amenities.
Bunroy Park, rated 3-star by VisitScotland, is a rare opportunity to purchase a proven lifestyle business with a substantial income and with approvals in place for further expansion. Viewing is strictly by appointment and a guide price has been set of £950,000.
