London, May 18 (ANI): The Old Forge pub at Inverie, on the Knoydart Peninsula in the West Highlands, has been put up for sale for 790,000 pounds, despite the fact it has no roads leading to it and takes an 18 mile hike or a seven mile sea crossing to reach.
The easiest way to get to the most remote pub in Britain is via a 45-minute ferry crossing or a 20-minute water taxi from the small harbour town of Mallaig.
Owners Ian and Jackie Robertson have had the pub for 20 years but have decided to retire.
“I turn 65 next year and we have decided the time has come to retire. We have thoroughly enjoyed building up the business, but it is a lot of hard work and someone younger should now be given the opportunity to enjoy it,” the Scotsman quoted Robertson as saying.
The property comes with 10 private moorings, a waterfront bar and restaurant, and owners’ accommodation as well the potential to acquire another house with outline planning permission.
David Reid, of selling agents Knight Frank, said: “There is no question that the Old Forge is a rare find and it will appeal to those looking for a new lifestyle in a remote location, but with the added benefit of a superb business showing exceptional turnover, strong performance, yearly growth and good net profits.” (ANI)
