Lockerbie hotelier buys renowned Moffat hotel

Glen Wright, owner of the Dryfesdale hotel in Lockerbie, has bought a renowned hotel in the centre of the Scottish Borders town of Moffat which he intends to upgrade to four-star standard.

Moffat House hotel sits in 1.5 acres of grounds in the country town that is midway between Glasgow and Carlisle and close to the M74.

The three-star Georgian mansion house hotel is a Grade A-listed property that was completed in 1761 by famous architect John Adam for the Earl of Hopetoun as a smaller replica of Hopetoun House in Edinburgh.

It offers 21 en-suite bedrooms to sleep 44, three with four-poster beds.

A private owners' suite at the top of the property provides three rooms and a bathroom while a one-bedroom cottage/flat on the ground floor is let out for £9,444 a year.

The Glasgow and Edinburgh offices of Colliers Robert Barry sold the freehold off an asking price of £1.1m.
