Leading 18th century hotel near Loch Lomond changes hands

The Winnock Hotel, a 18th century hotel in the heart of Loch Lomond National Park, has been sold to a private investor in partnership with New World Hospitality.

Situated in the centre of Drymen, just moments from the world-famous Loch Lomond, The Winnock Hotel boasts a rich history dating back to the late 1700s and offers the perfect base for exploring the nearby lochs and highland scenery of the Trossachs.

Formerly a coaching inn, The Winnock Hotel has been lovingly restored and transformed into a multi-faceted tourist hotel hugely popular with international visitors. The property now offers 73 bedrooms, a characterful restaurant, function room and public lounge bar.

Gary Witham, Director in Christie & Co’s Scottish Hotels team, who handled the sale, comments, “It is rare for a well-invested leisure hotel of this scale, on the doorstep of some of Scotland’s most famous landmarks and with access to the central belt, to come to the market.

'The very solid business fundamentals leave the private buyer with scope to expand and adapt an already very successful model.”

Joint agent, Graeme Smith of Smith & Clough added, 'Having known the client for many years I was delighted to have been involved, alongside Gary, to sell the Winnock Hotel, on a completely confidential basis, which is regarded as one of the finest privately owned hotels in the area.

'Having bought the hotel in 1989, our client developed and built a very successful business and can now enjoy a well-earned retirement from the trade. Both Gary and I wish the new owners every success for the future.”
