It has 19 en-suite letting rooms as well as a bar and restaurant area and a function room for up to 100 people.

The agent said: “It is very rare to offer a business for sale that has been in the same family since 1965.

“Our clients have run the business as a family concern uninterrupted since then up until 2019, when our clients decided to lease the business to a long-standing member of staff.

“The Cairndow Stagecoach Inn is steeped in history, going back as far as 1780, becoming a popular stop off for many weary travellers, including Dorothy Wordsworth and the poet John Keats as well as becoming a stop off point for Queen Victoria in 1875 on a visit to the Duke of Argyll in nearby Inveraray.

“Circumstances now dictate the hotel and business can be offered for sale on a vacant possession and a smooth handover of the business from the current tenant and landlord be easily achieved.”

The agent added: “We are advised that the business continues to trade well in all departments, particularly from accommodation sales.

“Our clients have run the business in some format for nearly seven decades and they believe the time is right to pass on this strategically important and well-equipped business to the next owner and generation.


“During our client’s long-term ownership, they have sympathetically upgraded and extended the business and the offering.”

It also said that the investment into the property since the 1980s totals “a figure close to £1 million”.

The hotel is being offered at a guide price of £795,000.
