The Sailors’ Store is an established lifestyle business which allows the purchaser to live in spectacular part of the country whilst running a holiday letting business. There is ample opportunity for expandinthe business further and diversifying into other areas such as active sport holidays, food lovers’ getaways, walking, painting or photography holidays.

The Sailors’ Store development comprises four separate properties which are offered for sale as an investment
portfolio. The Sailors’ Store was the original building on the site and was restored in the late 90’s. The Cottage,
and Harbour House were all newly built in the early 2000’s. The Bothy is the newest building being built on site
and is in the last part of completion. The properties presently operate as an accommodation business, comprising
letting cottage, private rooms and superior hostel accommodation. However, the four buildings can equally
function separately and independently. Following recent changes in the local council plan the owners are
presently submitting planning applications to allow domestic dwelling use of all three buildings (The Sailors’ Store,
Harbour House and The Cottage) on the site. With outstanding views over the stunning Moray Firth, all four properties enjoy the very best Cullen has to offer.

Yearly income for the Harbour House, Cottage and the Sailors’ Store for the last five years has been £23,000-
£27,000. There is potential for increased income with suitable promotion.

All four properties have been lovingly constructed with traditional materials such as lath, plaster and clay drains.
The Harbour House, The Sailors’ Store and The Cottage are all finished to a high standard with Caithness flagstone
incorporating under floor heating on all ground floors, reclaimed whisky wood on all the staircases, wood-lined
walls and open roof spaces. All other walls are finished with traditional plaster or exposed stone.
Externally, Caithness flagstone has been used in the sheltered courtyard and the same slate has been used on the
roof structures of Harbour House, Sailors’ Store and Cottage as well as the gable of Harbour House. All the
buildings have been very solidly built with these robust materials, to withstand the elements in this coastal
