Colliers International, the leading hotel and licensed property specialists, have sold the historic Strathardle Inn, located in the picturesque village of Kirkmichael in Perthshire.

With its origins as a 17th century drovers inn, the Strathardle Inn has played an important role in North Perthshire. The flexibility of the accommodation – eight letting bedrooms, restaurant, bar, lounge – benefits the property greatly and included with the Strathardle Inn are its own fishing rights on the River Ardle opposite. The property also provides an excellent family home for resident owners, with its three-bedroom private flat. 

The Strathardle Inn has been sold by Katherine Furmidge and Tim Hancher, who have owned and operated the business for almost eight years. They are set to return to the North of England.

The new owners, Colin and Abi Massey, have been working within the hospitality and licensed trade in Buckinghamshire. They are now returning to Colin’s roots in the Highlands, to run this traditional inn.

Alistair Letham, a director with selling agents Colliers International, commented: “The Strathardle Inn is a great business for resident proprietors. It provides an excellent home for those seeking a solid and established income base, coupled with the lifestyle and amenity that living in North Perthshire has to offer.”

The purchase price was not disclosed but Colliers International confirmed that they had been inviting offers around £425,000 for the Strathardle Inn.
