Airds Hotel & Restaurant in the Scottish highlands has been sold to Scottish hotel investor Benjamin Andrews.
The 11-bedroom hotel in Argyll had been owned by Shaun and Jenny McKivragan, but the pair plan to retire after 19 years of operation.
Airds draws in customers thanks to its scenic location, but is also home to an eponymous fine-dining restaurant, headed up by chef Calum Innes.
The restaurant has held 3 AA Rosettes since 1996, as well as having a continuous presence in the Good Food Guide for 43 years and receiving a recommendation in the Michelin Guide’s 2021 edition.
The hotel was sold to Andrews for an undisclosed sum, with commercial real estate specialists Colliers and Christie + Co acting as joint agents.
Robert Smithson, Associate Director at Colliers said: “So far this year, we’ve sold over 60 hotels, many of which have been quality assets in coastal and country locations popular with tourists. The sale of the Airds again underlines the popularity of quality hotels in beautiful tourist locations.
“I am thrilled that the Airds has been sold to someone who will continue the legacy of the McKivragans and continue to offer the high levels of quality and service the hotel is famous for which brings customers back to the area year after year. I wish Benjamin the best of luck with his operation of the hotel.”
