Lake Hotel
The Lake of Menteith Hotel is described as offering a New England style in a tranquil setting.

HOSPITALITY business agency Drysdale & Company is helping the owner of the Lake of Menteith Hotel in the Trossachs National Park find an operator to take on the remaining ten year leasehold on the property.

The property comprises 18 guest bedrooms and two separate one-bedroom apartments, as well as a waterfront restaurant and a bar.

Occupying what’s described as a tranquil setting with picturesque views, the Stirlingshire hotel is said to have a reputation for the quality of its accommodation, and its food and drink offer.
Once the manse for the local church, the building is now presented in the style of a New England waterfront inn, and has won several hotel industry awards in the past decade.

Agent Stuart Drysdale said: “The Lake of Menteith is very well known as a destination for visitors from all over the central belt who can easily escape to its peaceful shores, appreciating what is now something of an environmental oasis in Scotland, within a national park.

“Any new operator of this hotel, which is already a well known brand in its own right, will hit the ground running, especially given the current popularity of staycations.”

Ian Fleming, who has operated the hotel with his family for the past 16 years, added: “We have enjoyed every moment there, and are proud of what we have nurtured.

“Now is the time for new operators with a similar, but fresh vision to build on the great reputation it has, and refresh the offer to the hotel’s many loyal customers, as well as those yet to discover the environmental oasis that is The Lake of Menteith and Trossachs National Park.”

Drysdale added: “We wish Ian well with his other business interests. He has done a truly sterling job with the Lake of Menteith Hotel.

“This is the latest in a steady line of prestigious deals we have handled, covering B&Bs, self-catering parks, serviced apartments, guest houses, public houses, and several hotels of this calibre.”
