Ayrshire buyer for Portpatrick guest house and coffee shop

Andrew Sinclair from Ayrshire has bought the Knowe Guest House and Tysties Coffee Shop in the Scottish fishing village of Portpatrick.

The village, which is near Stranraer in Dumfries, is a golfer's paradise surrounded by golf courses and enjoys a temperate climate thanks to the Gulf Stream.

The three-star guest house is on an elevated site overlooking the harbour with views across the North Channel to Ireland.

The main building offers six en-suite bedrooms, a side conservatory that leads into the coffee shop, and two-bedroom owners' accommodation. There is a separate one-bedroom chalet to the rear.

The new owner plans to run the guest house as a holiday letting cottage but to close the coffee shop.

The Glasgow office of Christie + Co was seeking offers in excess of £445,000 for the freehold on behalf of Mark and Karen Brown, who have bought another coffee shop in the village.
