Bruce and Co. Are delighted to offer for sale Southcliffe Bed and Breakfast, a beautifully presented Bed & Breakfast situated Tarbert, Argyll & Bute.
The business has been under the very caring ownership of our clients for 6 years during which time, they have carefully carried out substantial refurbishments throughout the entire property to a very high standard and still adding to the business.
They are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their impending wish to retire. Southcliffe B&B enjoys a generous turnover and not only provides the owners with an excellent source of income, but also a wonderful home.
The property truly is superbly presented and can only be appreciated in full by viewing.
The business is currently run to the owners pace but could trade with more letting room if new owners wish to increase the turnover.
The business has received consecutive Certificates of Excellence from TripAdvisor and it also features on several accommodation booking sites where it receives exemplary feedback from previous guests.
Southcliffe B&B provides bed and breakfast accommodation in a commanding property with elegant interior making the business very unique in the local area.

Tarbert, Loch Fyne is a picturesque Highland village in a wonderful setting. The village surrounds one of the Few Natural Harbours in Scotland with Robert the Bruce’s Castle overlooking the Clear Harbour Waters.

Daily bus services from Glasgow to Campbeltown go via Tarbert.Being at the very north tip of Kintyre, Tarbert has Superb Access to Ferry Points offering good travel connections to Arran, Jura, Gigha, Islay and Portavadie in Cowal. Perhaps the nicest way to arrive is from a Yacht or Cruiser sailing into one of the Safest Harbours in Britain, which has Berths for over 200 craft.
