The Claymore Hotel in the picturesque Scottish town of Pitlochry has been sold, based off an asking price of £1.35 million.
Pitlochry is a popular tourist spot during the summer but has just 2,750 permanent residents. The town is located within the council area of Perth and Kinross, on the banks of the River Tummel.
The Claymore Hotel comprises a very well respected four-star guest house, which is situated a short distance to the west of Pitlochry town centre on the north side of Atholl Road – the main route through the town.
The hotel currently boasts 14 bedrooms, as well as a detached self-catering complex made up of four flats.
The property has been purchased by husband and wife team Gordon and Lauren Fyfe, who take over from previous owners Graeme and Di McFarlane, who are now planning to retire.
Commenting on their future plans for The Claymore Hotel, Gordon and Lauren Fyfe said: “The Claymore is a fantastic business with scope for future development. This purchase is the culmination of our search for a new lifestyle business in Pitlochry. We have been focused on this area for over two years and delighted that we have now successfully acquired the business we had our hearts set on. We look forward to taking over from Di and Graeme who have been instrumental to the success of the business.”
Peter Seymour, Hotel + Leisure Director at Graham + Sibbald who handled the sale, commented: “The high value and market leading sale of the Claymore adds to the recent successes of other sales within Pitlochry and demonstrates the resilience of the market despite recent and ongoing challenges. We wish all the very best to the new owners Mr & Mrs Fyfe and look forward to seeing how they take the business forward in years to come.”
