Highland lodge changes hands

A VICTORIAN lodge in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park has changed hands in a deal brokered by property firms Cornerstone Business Agents and Strutt & Parker.

Suidhe Lodge in Kincraig near Aviemore was sold for an undisclosed sum from an asking price of £795,000 after 23 years under the same ownership.

Dating from 1890, the property now comprises six en suite letting rooms, a dining room, a guest lounge and self-contained pub, the Suie Bar. There’s also three-bedroom owner’s accommodation on the second floor of the property; and a three-bedroom garden cottage in the grounds.

Barry McNeil of Cornerstone, who handled the sale jointly with Euan MacCrimmon of Strutt & Parker, said: “The sale represents a further increase in demand for Highland lifestyle property.

“We are pleased at the levels of interest the property and business achieved in a very quick and successful marketing campaign.”
