A long established, highly rated and profitable guest house with excellent family sized owners' accommodation and with potential for further development conveniently situated for the town centre and transport links.


Oban, the principal tourist town of Argyll and the unofficial capital of the West Highlands, supports a wide range of shops, restaurants, leisure and recreational facilities and professional services. There are primary schools, a high school, a leisure/sports centre and a general hospital as well as churches of various denominations. The thriving town has an attractive sea front and bustling harbour from which Caledonian MacBrayne ferries serve many of the Hebridean Islands. The town enjoys good transport links to the central belt of Scotland by road and rail and the airport at North Connel serves private and light charter aircraft.

Pleasantly situated in a highly visible location overlooking the bowling green and with views past neighbouring properties to the seascape beyond, Greencourt Guest House is conveniently located for the town centre, leisure complex and other amenities and is within easy reach of public transport services.

Offered for sale as a going concern, Greencourt Guest House offers that rare combination of a long established, profitable and highly regarded guest house business, currently rated ‘9.4 Superb’ on Booking.com and ‘4.5 Excellent’ on tripadvisor, combined with exceptional family sized owners’ accommodation and still with potential for further development.

The carefully maintained property, which was reroofed in 2016, benefits from full double glazing and a combination of mains gas central heating (new boiler installed 2018) serving the public areas and owners’ accommodation and electric panel heaters in the guest bedrooms.

The very well presented letting accommodation, situated on the upper (entrance) level, which was extensively refurbished in 2017 comprises 4 double rooms, 1 twin room and 1 single room all with en-suite or private bath/shower room facilities. In addition there is a bright and spacious, view-facing dining room which comfortably accommodates the 6 dining tables, soft seating and serving areas. There is also ample off-street parking for guests and owners.

The owners’ accommodation, on the lower floor, provides a bright and spacious lounge, large well appointed kitchen with family dining area, 4 bedrooms, recently refitted bathroom, shower room, office area, utility room and store rooms. There is potential to reconfigure the lower floor and the substantial attic area, subject to any necessary consents, to provide further income generating accommodation.

Trading: As the current owners choose to trade to suit their own lifestyle requirements, there is ample scope to develop the business further and substantially increase turnover and profitability. The popularity and success of the business is evident by its ‘9.4 Superb’ and ‘4.5 Excellent’ ratings on Booking.com and tripadvisor, respectively and the fact that it is already booked almost to capacity for the main season through to the end of September. Turnover for the year to April 2018 was approximately £80,000. Further financial information will be made available to suitably qualified enquirers. Contents: All trading contents are included in the sale. An inventory will be made available at the appropriate time.
