The Crags Hotel is very well located in a town centre position within the very popular town of Callander. Historically, the business has traded as a 9 bedroom hotel with a small bar facility. The business could re-open as such or, alternatively, the property may be suited for conversion with owner’s accommodation at ground floor level and letting accommodation on the upper floors, thereby providing a well located bed and breakfast property in a sought after trading locale. The building may also be suitable for partial or complete conversion to self-catering accommodation. The location of the property and its attractive frontage, provide a number of opportunities to any potential purchaser.
Offers Over £295,000 (plus VAT if applicable) are sought for the benefit of the heritable property, including all trade fixtures, fitting and equipment within the premises.
An EPC report has been instructed for the property and will be made available to interested parties.
Strictly no approaches to be made to the property direct. For further information please contact CDLH on 0141 331 0650.
