Make for the isles

The Herald - Scotland's Homes - - News -

HOUSE hunters look­ing to es­cape the norm for a change of pace and life­style might want to check out North­bay House, a former Vic­to­rian school and school­house on the Is­land of Barra cur­rently op­er­at­ing as a suc­cess­ful bed and break­fast busi­ness with sep­a­rate self-cater­ing unit.

Mod­ernised and up­graded, North­bay is the top-rated B&B busi­ness on the is­land, how­ever the prop­erty could eas­ily be adapted to ex­tend the self-cater­ing or in­cor­po­rate a granny flat.

The lay­out is presently con­fig­ured as a liv­ing/din­ing room, kitchen, study and two guest bed­rooms on the ground floor, with mas­ter bed­room, bath­room and three fur­ther bed­rooms on the first floor.

The self-cater­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion has a sep­a­rate en­trance and com­prises ground floor liv­ing room and en suite bed­room, with a sec­ond sit­ting room and en-suite bed­room up­stairs.

Barra is famed for its lochs, hills and beaches (the plane lands on the beach, a flight I can thor­oughly rec­om­mend).

De­tails from In­ver­ness-based es­tate agent Bell In­gram, which is seek­ing of­fers in the re­gion of £380,000.

JUST THE BUSI­NESS: Change the pace of life by run­ning this B&B in Barra.

ALL IN­CLU­SIVE: As well as the B&B there is also sep­a­rate self-cater­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion.
