Alexander Selkirk’s local inn on Fife’s East Neuk for sale

A quayside hotel favoured by the real-life Robinson Crusoe is on the market, providing a near unique opportunity for hoteliers seeking to combine a stunning location with historical character.
The Crusoe Hotel in Lower Largo enjoys a picturesque location by the sea in Fife’s East Neuk. Lower Largo is perhaps best known as the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk, on whose experiences Daniel Defoe based his classic tale of Robinson Crusoe. This theme is echoed throughout the hotel, including a ‘footprint’ in the bar.
Offered for sale through Colliers International by the same hoteliers who recently sold the Dunnikier House Hotel in Kirkcaldy, the Crusoe enjoys a clientele of holidaymakers, commercial visitors and many golfers, with over 20 courses within easy reach of the hotel.
Alistair Letham, a director in the UK hotels agency team at Colliers International, said: “With the hotel’s location on the harbour quayside, in the favoured East Neuk of Fife and close to St Andrews, the Crusoe Hotel’s availability is a wonderful, indeed possibly rare, opportunity to purchase a well-established and popular business which new owners could easily develop further by putting their own style & stamp on this very attractive establishment.”
The original stone building of the Crusoe includes 16 modern en-suite letting bedrooms, as well as two bars, a lounge and the charming Castaway restaurant.
Colliers International is inviting offers of over £900,000 for The Crusoe Hotel, 2 Main Street, Lower Largo, Fife KY86BT.
