Description By The Vendor
The Hawthorns Bed and Breakfast is both substantial and impressive property with a commanding roadside location on the A836, the main coastal route in the north coast of Scotland. The BB is right on the North Coast Route 500 which is designed to show off some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland. This vibrant business attracts a wide range of trade, benefitting from the close proximity to the Castle of Mey, the late Queen Mother’s Highland home. The Castle is a popular visitor attraction is now open to the public and draws thousands of tourists to the county annually, a true economic benefit to the area. The property sits adjacent to the Queen’s Park field where the annual Mey Highland Games is held. The business also benefits from its proximity to John o’Groats which generates regular trade from those undertaking the trip from Lands’ End to John o’Groats or as it is fondly known from “End to End”. Both cyclists and walkers, plus their support teams, generate a steady level of income. The bed and breakfast also takes significant advantage being located close to the ferries crossings to Orkney with the Gills Bay car ferry just 3 miles away and the John o’Groats ferry 7 miles to the east.

The business has historically traded on 4 letting bedrooms with the vendors offering a dining option for guests by prior arrangement only. Should new owners not wish to provide evening meals there is a hotel just a short walk into the village of Mey. However, the property has 6 potential letting bedrooms without compromising the excellent owner’s accommodation. The business mainly trades during the Spring and Summer season from April to September; however, there is scope to extend the trading period from 6 months to a year-round operation. Should new operators wish to maximize trade increasing turnover and income, this is a realistic prospect. The business has an excellent reputation which is reflective of the outstanding service and excellent facilities on offer. The quality of fixtures, fittings and décor is of a very high standard. These two facets have resulted in consistent praise via trip advisor and the award of “World Host” status, a mark of excellence in the Hospitality business. The Hawthorns benefits from a high level of repeat business, circa 15%, which pays testament to the owner’s professionalism. The business has an intelligently laid out website.

Caithness is a vibrant economic area with strong developments in both wind and tidal power. The region has a strong seafaring tradition. The area is tremendously rich in opportunities for both the resident and the holidaymaker alike. Breath-taking cliffs are host to innumerable seabirds including the puffin, one of the ornithologist’s favourites. Beautiful golden beaches stretch for miles, none more so than nearby Dunnet Bay with its high dunes. Indeed, such is the setting that the area is renowned as a destination for surfers and hosts many national competitive even
