Brian Sheldon, Regional Director for Hospitality in Scotland at Christie & Co, comments, “We are delighted to be recognised once again by EG as the most active agent for Hotels & Leisure in Scotland. This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our market leading hospitality team. Some of our most notable deals in 2023 included the sale of the famous Seamill Hydro Hotel in Ayrshire, which was sold in an off-market deal to fast-growing RAD Group and Dalhousie Castle Hotel in Edinburgh, which was acquired by private US investors following an open-market process.

“Despite the headwinds facing the hotel sector, buyers remain keen to acquire established and profitable hotel businesses in Scotland and therefore we are working hard to secure opportunities to meet the demand. This year has kicked off to a strong start with the sale of the St Olaf Hotel in Cruden Bay and we look forward to announcing more deals in the coming months.”
