One of Western Scotland's longest-established hostelries is sold

The Virginia creeper-fronted property lies in the centre of the village of Kilmelford near Loch Melfort and nearly mid-way between Oban and Lochgilphead.

The A816 road which winds from loch to loch and town to town on the stretch of countryside between Fort William and Campbeltown passes in front of the country-style residential inn.

Along with 12 en-suite bedrooms to sleep 18, the large property incorporates a bar connected with a 12-seat snug and a games room with pool table; the 20-seat Tartan lounge, and a vaulted lounge that could accommodate up to 60 people at a function;

A private flat is provided on the second and first floors with an open-plan lounge, galley-style kitchen, a bathroom and an open-plan family bedroom arranged for four, but which could be sub-divided.

An adjacent block provides accommodation for up to six staff along with a bathroom and lounge.

The hotel made a net turnover of £201,104 in the year to 31 January 2008.

The Glasgow office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the freehold off an asking price of £450,000.
