Business in ‘Macbeth’ village of Birnam up for sale
A PERTHSHIRE hotel business in the village immortalised in William Shakespeare’s Macbeth has come onto the market.
Colliers International is marketing the Birnam Hotel & Inn in Birnam – one part of the two-village community of Dunkeld and Birnam, which are separated by the River Tay but linked by the Telford Bridge. Birnam Wood and the surrounding area were referenced in the Shakespeare play.
The Birnam Hotel comprises 27 en suite letting rooms and a letting apartment, with public areas including a 45-cover restaurant, a 40-cover bar and a conference suite with a capacity of 30.
There’s also a banqueting hall, which is said to have been inspired by the grand hall at Blair Castle in Pitlochry. The hall offers a theatre-style capacity of 135 and a dining capacity of 85 covers.
It is ideal for new or experienced operators.
Adjacent to the hotel, the Birnam Inn comprises a public bar and bistro restaurant, which is said to have a capacity of 35 covers.
Alistair Letham, a director with selling agent Colliers International, said the Birnam Hotel & Inn is a “fine and imposing hotel property, which enjoys strong local, tourist and visitor support”.
“It is ideal for either first time buyers or experienced operators looking to acquire a reputable and well-established business in one of Scotland’s most popular destination locations,” he said.
Colliers International is inviting offers around £600,000 for the Birnam Hotel & Inn.
