High Cliff Guest House is an extremely well run business that has been run by the current proprietors since 2007. The property has been placed on the market due to the current proprietor’s impending wish to retire from the Tourist trade. The guest house trades throughout the year and its quality is reflected in the number of awards it currently holds such as achieving 5 out 5 on trip advisor, being rated 4 star gold by Visit Scotland. Additional marketing is carried out through its own informative website .
