Hotel overlooking Loch Harray on the market for £1.6m


The Merkister Hotel, overlooking Loch Harray on the Main Orkney Isles, was launched at a guide price of £ 1.65 million.

The well-established hotel comprises a total of 16 en suite rooms, 13 of which are located in the main building. The remaining three are in a separate block called The Garden Rooms, each with a private terrace with a view of the Loch.

In addition, the grounds include a lounge bar open to the public, the Skerries restaurant, which seats up to 60, and The Fisherman's Neuk, a private resident lounge.

Externally, the hotel is surrounded by lawn gardens and has access to a pier, boathouse and boat berths. The hotel also has six fishing boats and outboard motors, which are also on sale.

Owned by the current owners since 1983, the Merkister is "known" to locals and visitors, and is said to be used by fishing groups to enjoy recurring trade and customs.

Current owners, the MacDonald family, have decided to sell the hotel after 36 years to retire.

Stuart Drysdale, Christie and Co's director of sales, said, "The Merkister Hotel is one of the best small, family-owned hotels on the Orkney Isles. The recurring business is popular with tourists and fishing parties and testifies to the quality and service we have been offering for 35 years.

"The hotel was consistently maintained with a brand new commercial kitchen in 2018 at an excellent standard. Thus, the property is really in a walkable condition and ready for a new owner who wants to enjoy a successful business in a picturesque setting.
