Plockton Inn, Plockton – SOLD

The Hotel + Leisure division of UK Property Firm Graham + Sibbald are delighted to announce that the Plockton Inn, Plockton, IV52 8TW has been SOLD.

The Plockton Inn is located in the heart of the west coast tourist honeypot of Plockton, where they filmed the world famous BBC series Hamish McBeth. The hotel has 14 bedrooms, restaurant, lounge, conservatory and a bar.

The hotel has been sold on behalf of the Gollan Family, who have now officially retired from the hotel and licensed trade business. However, Ken Gollan will be running the Crabshack next to the Hotel for this summer.

The Plockton Inn has been acquired by Roddy Watt, CEO of Highland Coast Hotels; this is their fifth acquisition in the last 18 months and it won’t be their last. Roddy Watt commented, “We are delighted to have acquired The Plockton Inn from Kenny and Mary Gollan, and Susan Trowbridge. Under their ownership, the hotel has acquired a wonderful reputation for its hospitality and we are delighted to have been handed the baton and to carry on and build on their legacy.”

“With a strong focus on the local communities around our hotels, and impacting positively on the wider environment, we look forward to creating further economic and employment-related opportunities in the area and will continue to invest in the property, the circular economy, and to operate it on a year-round basis.”

Peter Seymour, Director of Hotel + Leisure with Graham + Sibbald, commented, “We feel this is another excellent purchase by Highland Coast Hotels. They have the means and ability to take the Plockton Inn to a new level. This will be a valuable asset within their group, which should give them significant growth when they complete the additional letting rooms and restaurant space. We are delighted to get a result of this nature from a marketing campaign that commenced after Covid lockdowns yet at a level expected before the virus reached Scotland. We hope the family have a wonderful retirement.”

Plockton, which is known as the Jewel of the Highlands, made famous by its numerous appearances in film and tv, particularly the Hamish McBeth tv series on the BBC, is located a short drive north of the Kyle of Lochalsh. This seaside village overlooks Loch Carron and is a very popular anchorage for visiting yachts, especially during its fortnight sailing regatta. Plockton’s proximity to the Kyle of Lochalsh and therefore Skye, means it is a very popular tourism location with a plenty of outdoor attractions as well as visitor centres, as well as cycle routes, walking routes or fishing trips. There is even an unmanned airfield located next to the village, constructed in the 1960s. The airfield can handle light aircraft, microlights and helicopters, thereby providing easy access to the Central Belt of Scotland for private charters.
