A historic pub on an idyllic Scottish island with white sand beaches just like the Caribbean is up for sale. 

The Cross Inn, Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides, is described as "great fun" in a "wonderful community" by its current owner. 

The gastropub is being sold for £399,000 on an island compared to 'Caribbean beach without the crowds' or the South Pacific, due to its white sands. 


It has a gigantic beer garden and a rustic bar and was refurbished during the pandemic. 

The pub is on the Hebridean Way walking and cycling route and is popular with tourists and islanders.

It is expected to generate between £200,000 to £500,000 but the cruise ship market has not yet been tapped into.
