Alan Crossan from Glasgow is the new owner of the Royal George hotel in Millport, the only town on the Scottish Isle of Cumbrae.
Millport is a Victorian town that houses the smallest cathedral in Europe and Britain's narrowest house. It has good links with the Scottish mainland, being just 10 minutes from the ferry terminal to Largs.
The hotel's pier-side location commands views over the harbour and Millport Bay and the beer garden to the rear offers views over the Firth of Clyde.
Spread over three levels, it provides six en-suite bedrooms, a 30-seat dining room, a lounge bar, and a public bar that doubles as a function room that can take 120 guests standing or 80 sitting down.
Owner's accommodation across the second floor and attic consists of three rooms and a bathroom.
The Glasgow office of Christie + Co sold the freehold interest off a guide price of £375,000 on behalf of Ian Morrison and family who have leased out the hotel for the past few years.,
