Opportunity knocks for new ownership at The Kirkhouse Inn


A hotel in Glasgow with significant expansion and growth opportunities has gone on the market for £650k.

The Kirkhouse Inn in Strathblane, a family-run hotel, pub and a 140-cover restaurant, is situated on a 0.7 acre site and with not much competition in its vicinity, benefits from healthy trading figures.

While the 15-bedroom hotel garners a good turnover from f&b sales as well as room nights, the sale highlights the number of opportunities to improve the trading positon of the business.

The main trading areas and kitchen are located on the ground floor with the entire first floor/attic comprising the bedroom accommodation. Externally to the front there are tables and chairs whilst a three tier beer garden to the right side of the property. The car park is currently being reconfigured and will accommodate up to 40 vehicles.

The business operates as a typical village inn property, generating income from both resident and non-resident trade.

Jonathan McManus of DM Hall’s Glasgow North office, who is overseeing the marketing effort said: “Much of its previous competition is no longer operating and there is an opportunity to improve the trade of the business. It is currently the only facility in the area able to accommodate sizeable functions but does not use online technology to market the business to attract room lettings.

“Accordingly, this present a real opportunity to raise its profile via social media and online booking sites and, thereby, to increase revenue.

“There are, in addition, areas of the property internally that could be modernised by internal decoration of both the lounge/pub areas as well as within the bedroom areas and common hallways.

“Trading for the half year of the current financial year is again showing improvement from the last year and, of course, detailed financial accounts are available to seriously interested parties.

Anyone interested in further information in pursuing this unique opportunity should contact Jonathan McManus, or Graeme Todd, or on 0141 332 8615.
