Christie & Co instructed to market historic Lochside hotel in Argyll

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has been instructed to sell The Creggans Inn, an award-winning hotel located in the village of Strachur, Argyll and Bute.


The historic hotel has recently been refurbished to a very high standard, all while maintaining the property’s unique and historic character. The ground floor features a cosy bar and restaurant area, a function room, and a spacious lounge area. The second floor presents another lounge exclusively for residents, and 14 en-suite bedrooms which are individually styled and offer breath-taking views.

Sitting in a prime Lochside location in the village, The Creggans Inn boasts stunning views over Loch Fyne, which attracts visitors year round. Being just over an hour away from Glasgow, and two hours from Edinburgh, the hotel is also well positioned to capture those travelling across Scotland.

The hotel was once owned by Sir Fitzroy Maclean and Lady Veronica Maclean, who purchased Strachur Estate, including the hotel, in 1957. Sir Fitzroy was thought to have been an inspiration for the James Bond 007 character due to his close friendship with Ian Fleming.

For the last 16 years, the hotel has been owned and run by Archie and Gill MacLellan who have invested significantly to fully refurbish the historic property and build its reputation as a great place for food, drink, and warm hospitality.  The pair are now selling to focus on other business ventures.

Simon Watson, Business Agent – Hospitality at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale, comments, “The Creggans Inn would make a great purchase for a family, husband-and-wife team, or chef owner-operator. It may also appeal to a variety of first-time buyers or those seeking a lifestyle change.”

The Creggans Inn is on the market at offers of £974,500, for the freehold going concern.
