‘Exciting’ Fort William development opportunity brought to market

SPECIALIST hospitality agents, Drysdale and Company, has announced it is bringing a new development opportunity near Fort William to the marketplace.

The former 23-bedroom Loch Linnhe Hotel, which is currently closed, is for sale with planning permission in place for 14 luxury apartments. The development will overlook Loch Linnhe on the A82 Achintore Road, which is the main road into Fort William.

Planning permission granted to the site, which is in place until 2024, allows for full demolition of all existing buildings.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to develop what is an extremely well located site, situated in a prime part of the Highlands,” said Stuart Drysdale. “Until recently the property on the site operated as The Loch Linnhe Hotel, a 23-bed property with private parking and gardens.

“In 2021 the owners applied for planning permission for demolition of the existing building and construction of two detached blocks which would be part two and part three storey height, each containing seven two-bed holiday apartments. Planning permission was granted on the 20th October 2021 and is in place for three years from this date.

“We expect to see strong interest in this site, as self catering or serviced apartment accommodation has grown ever more popular. Groups and families are looking for relaxed, quality accommodation to base themselves for a break away to explore the countryside and the many activities available in and around the surrounding area.”
