  Business Summary   
Fairways Bed and Breakfast is a Victorian property enjoying a prominent position close to Inverness City Centre. Located just off one of the main roads leading to the City, Fairways is a deceptively large property which would make a good business trading location or a larger family home. The building has been maintained to a good level with a new boiler being installed and upgraded electrics within the past two years. The building has a compliant fire system. The present owners have maintained the property to a good standard but if operated as a bed and breakfast new owners would wish to decorate some rooms. As a boarding house or student letting accommodation the house would need minimal attention to be of a good standard. Currently trading purely on a boarding house basis to reflect the vendors’ preference to operate on a leisurely basis. The business would be ideal to take advantage of the new university in the City. As a bed and breakfast the business could be readily expanded with a more proactive marketing strategy, possibly using portal websites, as Inverness is a highly popular area with golfers, anglers, ornithologists and those active in genealogical research, not to mention business clientele and of course tourism - the prime business driver. The sale of Fairways offers a great self-employment opportunity in the heart of Inverness offering a desirable “home and income” lifestyle opportunity.
