THERE are new names above the door at a historic Perthshire inn.

John MacGregor has handed over the reins at the Bein Inn at Glenfarg to Theresa and Jim Laing, who have returned to their native Scotland after 24 years in Australia, in a ten-year lease deal.
MacGregor, who bought the hotel, bar and restaurant business with son Allan in 2007, said he plans to concentrate on other business concerns and “take life a bit easier”.
