The new owners are two local businessmen who have been looking to expand and diversify their existing business and purchased the property off an asking price of £925,000.

Ken Sims, director at Christie & Co’s Edinburgh office brokered the sale and comments: “The Station Hotel has delivered strong and consistent growth over many years, and represented a highly attractive opportunity for a buyer seeking a solid business producing a good return.

“There is a strong regular local business from all surrounding areas with a high level of repeat trade. In addition to the local trade, there are also golfers staying in nearby guest house who frequently eat in the hotel restaurant, causing a steady dining trade.”
