Property Summary

The sale of The Pennan Inn offers a unique opportunity to acquire an exceptionally exquisite property. The Pennan Inn enjoys a prominent location in the charming fishing village of Pennan on the northern coast of Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Famous for its role in the 1983 film Local Hero, featuring the iconic red phone box which sits across the street from the property.

Currently operating as a B&B and Gallery offering exclusive tours of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), the Pennan Inn has the potential to be re-established as a thriving hotel and restaurant, providing new owners with the chance to maximize the property's future and drive the business forward.

The main guest entrance leads to a cosy, welcoming bar to the right of the front door, offering a snug atmosphere for a quiet drink, complete with a feature wood-burning stove providing a warm ambience. Beyond the bar, an open area leads to a secluded dining area with traditional features, comfortably seating eight diners. This dining area is currently used as a gallery exhibiting the current tenant's photography. To the side of the open area is the main restaurant, continuing with traditional features. Another wood-burning stove complements this dining area, which spaciously seats 24 diners. The well-equipped kitchen is conveniently located to cater to both dining areas and the bar. The kitchen is already set up for commercial purposes, with all appliances remaining in the property. Toilets and storage facilities are also located on the ground floor.

On the upper floor, there are six tastefully decorated double bedrooms, each with its own ensuite shower room. There is a further double bedroom with a shower room, ideal for staff accommodation. The Pennan Inn offers the flexibility to be used as a hotel or, in line with the current tenants, as living accommodation with some letting rooms. The bedrooms at the front of the property offer panoramic sea views over the North Sea. Additionally, a small room situated between two of the bedrooms could be utilized as an office, and various large storage cupboards are strategically placed, offering ample storage for bed linen and towels.

Pennan offers a glimpse into the traditional Scottish way of life, where time seems to stand still. Its whitewashed cottages, quaint harbour, and iconic red phone box create a scene that's as authentic as it is charming. Strolling along the pebbly beach, you'll encounter seals, seabirds, and other wildlife. Pennan is an ideal spot for those seeking a peaceful and scenic getaway. Nearby, the picturesque villages of Gardenstown and Crovie offer further exploration opportunities, while Macduff and Banff are just a short drive away. The city of Aberdeen is within reach in an hour, and Inverness, can be reached within two hours.
