Offers over £315000 are invited


Luib House is a charming 17th century extended croft house boasting wonderful views over Loch Ainort towards Raasay and the surrounding countryside. This beautiful property preserves old character and charm while creating a spacious home that over the years has been sympathetically extended into a successful B&B.

Standing in a prominent position within a picturesque area of diverse landscape and attractive coastline, Luib House oozes character and charm with features including exposed stone walls, deep window sills which illustrate the thickness of the construction and V lining in various rooms.

Over the years the property has been extensively renovated to create a comfortable Bed & Breakfast in keeping with the style of property. Recently renovations had begun to provide self catering accommodation to one end of the property and owner accommodation to the other. The four large bedrooms all have private bathrooms or en-suite and the three social areas provide huge scope for how the property is utilised; which has the potential to be a Bed and Breakfast or self-catering with owner accommodation, two self-catering lets, or a large family home.

Luib House hosts a Lucky 2 b here Automated External Defibrillator (AED) on the exterior of the property which is maintained by the charity. 

The property must be viewed to appreciate the accommodation that is on offer.
