Independent hotelier Steven McLeod has expanded his portfolio of properties with the opening of three new lodges at the Kenmore luxury leisure development in Perthshire.
More than £1.8m has been invested in the conversion of the lodges, on the banks of the River Tay, which are located alongside the 40-bedroom Kenmore hotel and 10 other lodges which opened in 2012.
The new lodges each feature three double or twin bedrooms, private gardens and luxury kitchens.
Kenmore is part of the Aurora Hotel Collection which features a portfolio of hotels across central Scotland including Airth Castle Hotel, nr Stirling; Glenbervie House & The Coach House, Larbert, nr Falkirk; and Solsgirth House, by Dollar.
McLeod, founder and chief executive of the Aurora Hotel Collection, said: "We are delighted to be opening these three new lodges at Kenmore, and we are planning to add more in the future.
"Since opening the initial 10 lodges, we've been running at over 80% occupancy and we really needed these additional lodges to meet the demand from customers. It's still a very challenging environment, but there is definitely a market for what we are offering - quality accommodation and great service at an affordable price.
"Our lodges are a step up from other accommodation in the area and we've carved out a market for ourselves. Customers have all the privacy and exclusivity of their own luxury lodge, yet with all the services and amenities of a hotel right on their doorstep."
