A GUEST house in a picturesque tourist hotspot has changed hands.
The Annfield Guest House, a traditional stone-built detached villa in the village of Callander in the Trossachs, dates back to 1875.
The business has been run by Lachlan McIntosh since 2006.
He is said to have completely renovated the property and developed the owner’s accommodation.
Property firm Bruce & Co claimed the success of the business is illustrated
by its four-star gold rating from VisitScotland.
The guest house was put on the market to allow McIntosh to retire.
New owner David Macdonald has moved to Scotland from Gloucestershire and financed the purchase by selling his own property.
He secured the freehold business interest of the property for £493,750.
Bruce & Co also recently brokered the sale of Lochview Guest House and Self Catering Apartments in Fort William.
Lochview Guest House has panoramic views over the Ardgour Hills and Loch Linnhe.
Like the Annfield Guest House, the Fort William property was sold to allow the former owners – Allan and Denise Kirk – to retire.
The freehold property was sold to Karen and Vince Dean, who relocated from Middlesex, for £417,500.
Jayne Adamson, sales manager at Bruce & Co, said: “It was a pleasure to deal with the sale of Lochview Guest House.
“I would like to wish Mr and Mrs Kirk all the best with their retirement, and would also like to wish Mr and Mrs Dean all the best with their relocation and new endeavour.”
