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 agreeable setting of Bunroy Park, one of Scotland’s most attractive lifestyle businesses, which has just been sold to Manchester couple, David and Patricia Kenyon by DM Hall, one of Scotland’s largest firms of Chartered Surveyors.
Burnoy Park provided a rare opportunity to acquire a proven lifestyle business with a substantial, and steadily improving, income and with approvals in place for further expansion. It was sold reluctantly by its former owner as a consequence of illness and the Kenyons have a number of developments in mind to further ensure its future as a successful business into the future.
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 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.
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.
Suzanne Lawrie of DM Hall, who oversaw the sales process said: “There was a significant level of interest in this successful lifestyle property business, particularly from people looking for a change of pace and an opportunity to relocate to a beautiful part of Scotland.”
