Knock Castle Hotel & Spa in Crieff, Perthshire, has come to market through Christie & Co with an asking price of £1.75m.
Knock Castle Hotel & Spa dates back to 1870 and is well-known as the grand former home of Scottish shipping magnate, Lady MacBrayne.
The hotel offers bedrooms, nine of which are situated in the adjacent ‘Castle Lodge’ building. The site sits within approximately three and a half acres of mature gardens and woodland in a stately, baronial sandstone structure which has obvious nods to a ‘castle’ with its conical towers, stepped chimney and carved entrance lintel reached by stone lion flanked stairs.
The site also has a lower ground spa, a rooftop terrace/restaurant which offers panoramic views of the beautiful Strathearn Valley, and a self-contained pool and leisure club. Two function suites are available to suit small meetings, weddings or grand gala dinners, and the residents' cinema can also be used for small meetings of up to 12 people.
The sale comes complete with two additional two-bedroom flats – one in the main hotel building and the other on the top floor of the Castle Lodge – both of which could be utilised as owner's accommodation or for staff use.
Set in the idyllic hills of the Strathearn Valley and within one hour's drive of Scotland's major cities, Knock Castle Hotel & Spa offers uninterrupted views across the beautiful Perthshire countryside and the historic town of Crieff.
The business is well recognised as a reputable wedding venue and is also popular for leisure and spa breaks as well as conference meetings. The hotel offers a first-class opportunity for a discerning operator to further transform an already popular venue to the next level.
Brian Sheldon, Regional Director (Scotland), who is handling the sale, comments, “This presents a great opportunity for the discerning buyer to further enhance this established business and increase income and profit.”
The seller will also accept offers for Knock Castle and Castle Lodge individually, for asking prices of £1.25m and £500k respectively.
