Dumfriesshire village inn goes to Fife couple

Martin and Elma Lamb from Cupar in Fife have bought the Queensberry Arms hotel in the Dumfriesshire village of Kirkconnel.

The pink property, which has been established since the 18th century, occupies a prominent corner position in the main street of the village

Kirkconnel is found in a valley divided by the River Neath and the area is a magnet for hill walkers, horse riders, mountain bikers and anglers. Popular attractions just an hour's journey away include Drumlanrig Castle, Ayr, the Burns Country and Culzean Castle.

The village inn has four en-suite letting bedrooms that have benefited from a lot of contractual work in the area.

Facilities include a public bar, a snug, a games room, a residents' lounge and two dining rooms that can seat 14 and 32 guests respectively.

There is also one-bedroom accommodation for the owners.

The Glasgow office of Christie + Co was seeking offers in excess of £300,000 for the freehold.
