Historic inn reaches new heights

The refurbished bar area

A HISTORIC coaching inn which has been owned by the same family for the past 25 years has been revamped in a bid to ready it for the next generation.

The Stair Arms Hotel in Pathhead has undergone a phased £500,000 refurbishment since January 2017, with the Ramsay family revamping existing areas and introducing new features, like a coffee area; the owners also plan to give the outdoor area a makeover. “We wanted to put our stamp on it by keeping the character of the original 1831 coaching inn but with a modern twist,” said the family.
