Indian entrepreneurs launch Highlands hotel collection

Indian entrepreneurs Sanjay and Rachna Narang are launching a collection of hotels in the Scottish Highlands, starting with the opening of Rokeby Manor (pictured) near Invergarry this week.

Owner of Mumbai-based hospitality company Mars Enterprise Narang has spent £3m acquiring three properties and another £9m refurbishing them to create the Black Sheep Hotel Group.

The group comprises the former Craigard Guest House, a 13-bedroom early Victorian country house relaunching as Rokeby Manor this week, the Cluanie Inn at Glenmoriston and the Whispering Pine Lodge in Spean Bridge, formerly the Letterfinlay Lodge, with the latter due to open later this summer.

The restaurant, Emily's Byre, housed in a refurbished cowshed, serves Indian food, specialising in recipes brought back by Scottish soldiers from India and adapted for locals.

The pair said: "We are delighted to be opening the first of our Black Sheep Hotels at Rokeby Manor, bringing together our considerable experience and expertise in the hospitality sector in order to provide a distinctive and authentic experience for our guests."
