Prominently located on the main A68 Edinburgh to Newcastle road, the former coaching inn traces its origins back to the late 18th century. More recently, the hotel has been refurbished to provide stylish accommodation, including eight letting bedrooms, two bars, lounge, restaurant and function room.

Perthshire Taverns Limited, which has owned the Black Bull since 2008, is set to focus its business interest elsewhere in Scotland, which provides the buyer with an opportunity to re-establish and develop a popular business. With a full range of facilities, the Black Bull draws custom from the immediate community, leisure visitors and tourists, enjoying all that the Borders have to offer. It is within easy driving distance (45 minutes) of Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh.

Alistair Letham, director of Hotels Agency, commented: “With its attractive Georgian façade and prominent location on a busy main road thoroughfare, the Black Bull offers an excellent opportunity for a cash buyer. The business has enjoyed excellent turnover and good profitability in the past and there is no reason, under new owners, why it cannot revert to this.”
