Christie & Co has been instructed by joint liquidators, Ken Pattullo and Kenny Craig of Begbies Traynor, to market the former Lomond Hills Hotel in Fife.
Located at the foot of the Lomond Hills in Freuchie, the eighteenth century converted coaching inn had been trading for almost 300 years and was a popular venue for weddings and events.
The property features 24 well-appointed bedrooms, a popular restaurant and public bar which served over 52 malt whiskies and two quality real ales, along with two function suites and a leisure centre with a pool gym, sauna and spa.
The historic hotel was placed into liquidation and ceased to trade, with all 17 staff made redundant, on 6 March 2023. Challenges related to the cost-of-living-crisis and Covid-19 were cited amongst the reasons for the village hotel’s liquidation.
Gary Witham, Director in Christie & Co’s Scottish Hospitality team is leading the marketing process. He commented, “This is an exceptional opportunity to create a hotel and leisure hub in an attractive village setting.
'The substantial building offers high quality leisure and hospitality facilities and we look forward to securing a new owner, to get this historic hotel back up and running.”
Thomas McKay, partner at Begbies Traynor in Scotland, added, “We have recently launched the hotel for sale through our selling agent Christie & Co and hope the hotel will again be able to operate in the hands of new owners soon.
'The hotel is central to the local community and has been for a long time. We anticipate on their being a positive reaction from interested parties during the open marketing process.”
