Plough a new furrow

• The pub dates from the mid-1880s.

A PUB in the Moray town of Keith is up for sale.
Established in the mid-1880s, the Plough Inn is said to benefit from “strong year-round local support” together with seasonal demand from tourists.
Said to achieve strong turnover from wet sales, the Plough Inn also benefits from a small function suite located to the rear of the pub. Able to accommodate events for up to 80 people, the function room has a separate bar (which is served by a recently-built cellar and store), a small dance floor, built-in sound system and fitted booth seating.
The sale also includes a four-bedroom flat located above the bar, which the property agent said could be used as owner’s accommodation or letting rooms, subject to consents.
Jackie MacGregor, marketing director at ASG Commercial, which is handling the sale of the pub, said: “This is a busy wee pub.
“There is an impression in the market that wet sales only pubs are a dying breed, but those who are involved in the community are thriving.”
The Plough Inn is on the market at offers in the region of £295,000 for the freehold.
