A thriving business providing serviced accommodation in the Caithness county town of Wick has been put up for sale.

The large period property – but a few minutes from the town centre, railway and bus stations and Wick airport – is being sold by Donald and Anne Campbell as they prepare to retire.

Described in a recent AA inspection report as a property in “excellent condition”, Caithness Business Serviced Apartments comprises one large, open-plan studio, two 2-bedroom flats and a three-bedroom flat.

Each is self-contained and furnished to Visit Scotland 4 Star standards.

There is parking at the front door, and shops, restaurants, supermarkets and the harbour – transport hub for the offshore workers the accommodation was originally designed for – within walking distance.

Donald said: “We recently refurbished throughout, so this lovely period property is, indeed, in excellent decorative order.

“It would be a solid investment for anybody wishing to continue in the hospitality industry, not least because there is a well-established website to go with the business.”

The property is being marketed for offers over £695,000.
