Rare opportunity in Royal Deeside

Braemar business on market for first time in 21 years

A RARE opportunity to acquire a ‘multi-faceted’ tourism business in the heart of Royal Deeside has arisen with the sale of the Braemar Lodge Hotel for the first time in 21 years.

Located in the village of Braemar, the business comprises a hotel, a 12-berth bunkhouse and nine self-catering chalets in the grounds.

The hotel, a former Victorian shooting lodge, has seven letting bedrooms, a lounge bar, and a dining room and restaurant split over two areas.

Operators Ronnie and Fiona Moore, who have owned and developed the business since 1996, are selling up in order to retire.

Braemar Lodge Hotel is a thriving, well-balanced business in an area of enduring appeal to visitors.

Alistair Letham, a UK director at Colliers International, which is marketing the business with a price tag of offers over £1.2 million, said the hotel attracts a broad clientele – from those visiting the village for its royal connection and Highland Games, to outdoor enthusiasts drawn to the Cairngorms National Park and nearby Glenshee Ski Centre.

“Braemar Lodge Hotel and Chalets is truly a multi-faceted leisure business offering a range of accommodation to suit all requirements and budgets,” said Letham.

“It is also complemented by an attractive restaurant area and the popular Malt Lounge Bar, making it an excellent opportunity for anyone looking for a thriving, well-balanced business in an area of enduring appeal to visitors.”
