A Perfect Location
This seems to me to be a perfect opportunity for someone stimulated by my interests - Scottish islands, hostelling, meeting people, running a business and living somewhere attractive, that's something of a hub. The Am Bothan Hostel at Leverburgh, South Harris, now up for sale through Bell Ingram, appears to tick all the boxes. It is situated in some of the UK's most appealing landscapes and seascapes; on the spinal route through the Western Isles, constantly used by hostellers; in a place that is a hub for local shopping and services; a destination-point for people going to St Kilda on day-trips as well as taking the Sound of Harris ferry; with a name that is well-known to travellers and accommodation that is appealing for both the visitors and for the owners or wardens.
Think it over - for the price of a city centre flat, here is a source of income from being at the centre of activities which answer the needs of, and give pleasure to, many.
