Barra Hotel Sale
The Heathbank Hotel, Barra, is for sale. The last time that this establishment was on the market was in 1974 when the asking price was somewhat lower than today's £375,000 or thereabouts. Full details are in a Stornoway Gazette item where there is a reference to the hotel's trading on a seasonal basis and to its origins as a mission in the 19th Century. That architectural feature is still evident.
