Andy Murray officially opens Cromlix House hotel

Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has officially opened his new luxury hotel, Cromlix House, in his home town of Dunblane, Perthshire.

The 15-bedroom Victorian mansion hotel, which opened on 1 April, features a Chez Roux restaurant overseen by Albert Roux, with executive head chef Darin Campbell, and is managed by Inverlochy Castle Management International.

The official opening was attended by Albert Roux and local couples Alan and Ruth Glynn, and Gavin and Kathleen Davey, who both campaign to raise money for charities close to their hearts.

Alan Glynn helps raise awareness of meningitis, which killed his 19-month-old daughter in 2011. He has raised over £90,000 for charities.

As chief executive and co-founder of Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA), Gavin Davey plans to fly a single-engine Piper Comanche plane around the world to raise over £350,000 for SCAA and the Sick Kids Foundation of Toronto.

Murray was also joined by students from Dunblane High School, who played a rally with him on the hotel's tennis court.

The tennis player bought the now-renovated hotel last year with the intention of giving something back to the community where he grew up.

Murray, pictured with his girlfriend Kim Sears, said: "It was a great way to mark the official opening of Cromlix. This is a great community and part of the reason I bought and restored the hotel was to be able to put something back into the local area, which has done so much for me and my family."
