  Location: Oban is known as the "Gateway to the Islands". It is a bustling holiday centre in a coastal location easily accessible by road rail and ferry. With a population of around 8,000 and due to its tourist and commercial industry provides a variety of facilities and services. With a modern leisure centre, public library, schools, churches, general hospital, cinema, golf course and many pubs, shops and restaurants, the town also offers access to a range of outdoor pursuits.
  There are several guest houses in Oban but Strathnaver is one of the first on entering Oban therefore it is situated in and excellent trading location on the main A85 road in to town.
  Growth Potential   
  Current operating months are from April to October to keep just below the VAT threshold. The turnover could easily be increased by more advertising (current owners only advertise with Oban and Lorne Tourism Association), opening all year and by providing meals for residents and non residents and obtaining a drinks licence. The guest lounge and dining rooms are large enough to accommodate this. There is also lapsed planning consent for change of use from garage to self contained unit.
  Support and Training Offered   
  If required a "changeover" period can be arranged.
