After a short period of marketing, the Bein Inn, Glenfarg, Perthshire, has been leased to Gary and Claire MacLeod.
The country inn, on the outskirts of the village in a popular tourist area, will be the couple’s first independent business venture, but they already have experience in the hotel trade as a chef and front of house management.
The Bein Inn is a well-established business, providing 12 letting bedrooms all ensuite, along with accommodation for its owners. Proud of its traditional origins, The Bein Inn has retained much of its original character. It has two bars, with original stone walls and a host of original features, a bright and inviting restaurant area, a comfortable lounge, and an impressive outdoor terrace.
Agents Graham + Sibbald assisted with leasing the property and successfully worked with the owners, the MacGregor family, and the McLeods to ‘achieve a harmonious deal’.
Alistair Letham, a consultant in the firm’s hotel + leisure division, commented: “We were delighted with the market reaction to this opportunity and to be able to provide our client with a new tenant quickly, with a seamless handover and continuity of trading at the Bein Inn. We look forward to observing this entrepreneurial couple build upon the strong reputation the Bein Inn already offers.”
Gary MacLeod said: “We are both delighted and honoured to have the historical Bein Inn as our first venture. We look forward to working with the MacGregor family to sustain this well-established local hotel into the future.
“Our plans are to build on the strong reputation and to focus our food offering in a sustainable, locally sourced way that supports local businesses and provides a quality service to the community we serve. We would also like to thank Graham + Sibbald, particularly Alistair, for the seamless handover and communication throughout the process of obtaining the lease.”
Graham + Sibbald also thanked Kenneth Iron from Gillespie Macandrew for his ‘sterling work’ in getting the new lease prepared in only five days!
The final lease terms were not disclosed, but Graham + Sibbald had invited a rent of £30,000 per annum.
