Historic 18th century Glendevon drovers inn, the Tormaukin Hotel, and Blackford Hotel, located in the eponymous village which also hosts Highland Spring’s headquarter, are both being marketed by Colliers International, and set to benefit from their proximity to the venue of next year’s Ryder Cup.
Alistair Letham, a director with selling agent Colliers International, commented: “These properties offer excellent opportunities to secure a slice of the action, at an attractive price, ahead of the influx of visitors to Perthshire.”
The Tormaukin Hotel, Glendevon near Dollar, Clackmannanshire, FK14 7JY is situated in a rural location, on a cross country route through the Ochil Hills and close to the Gleneagles resort. While retaining the historic charm of an old country inn, with its exposed stone walls, open fires and beamed ceilings, the 21st century business, which has become a “must visit” inn in Central Scotland, offers excellent and modern level of accommodation, including 11 letting bedrooms, reception lounge, residents’ lounge, main restaurant and a conservatory restaurant. It is being marketed at offers over £800,000, a reduction of £50,000, and also includes a two-bedroom modern chalet, ideal for owners, and two further chalets, suitable for staff accommodation or letting purposes. The business has benefited from a continually increasing turnover since being acquired by the current owners in 2010.
Blackford Hotel, Moray Street, Blackford, Auchterarder, Perthshire, PH4 1QF is located along the A9 Stirling to Perth trunk road and only three miles from the venue for the 2014 Ryder Cup. The former coaching inn closed last month, which is reflected in the price reduction of more than a quarter. It is now on the market for offers around £200,000. The hotel features eight letting bedrooms, bar, restaurant, function facilities and private flat.
Alistair Letham concluded: “Perthshire and Clackmannanshire are prime areas for leisure businesses and both the Tormaukin Hotel and Blackford Hotel offer the opportunity to create a strong proposition for a thriving hospitality venture, serving local and visiting customers alike.”
