Double deal for trad pubs


TWO traditional Scottish pubs have recently changed hands in deals brokered by chartered surveyors firm DM Hall.
Located at opposite ends of the country, both properties are described as “landmarks” within their communities.
Situated on the banks of the Dornoch Firth, the Dornoch Bridge Inn changed hands for an undisclosed sum from a reduced price of offers over £135,000; the former hotel comprises a bar, function facilities and owner’s accommodation.
Further down the country, in the central lowlands, the Cross Keys in Bo’ness has also been sold on behalf of its owner by DM Hall.
Suzanne Lawrie, of the firm’s Edinburgh office, said both pubs will be given a “new lease of life”.
