The West End Hotel, a favourite capital haunt of the Highland diaspora, goes on sale in Edinburgh
A city hotel with a long tradition as a gathering point for Highlanders has gone up for sale.
The West End Hotel, which has now ceased trading, occupies five floors of a B-listed Victorian townhouse in the capital’s upmarket Palmerston Place.
It was for many years a favourite meeting place for Highlanders living away from home or visiting the bright lights of the city – particularly to celebrate sporting events such as the Six Nations rugby tournament.
The premises offers enormous potential for development, with more than 7,000 square feet of space in a prime location in the city’s exclusive West End.
The interior has been refurbished to a high standard, with opportunities to reopen as a hotel or convert back into a prestigious private residence – subject to the relevant planning consent.
There are 10 letting bedrooms and dorms, with capacity for 66 residents, and a mixture of en-suite and communal toilet and shower facilities.
The property also houses a commercial kitchen, an office, two bars and dining areas, as well as separate staff accommodation and a laundry for guests.
Outside there is a small garden and terrace area at the rear of the hotel.
The West End Hotel is on sale at offers over £2,200,000 through McEwan Fraser.
