Bridge of Orchy Hotel trebles in size

The four-star Bridge of Orchy in Argyll has tripled in size in a bid to attract more
international visitors. A £1.5m investment has seen the hotel add 23 bedrooms to its
original 10 with the addition of a courtyard extension. The hotel, part of the MacDonald Hotel Group, is situated close to the West Highland Way in Argyll, at Glencoe. The Bridge of Orchy Hotel has been owned by Donald MacDonald and Sandy Orr since around 1990 and is managed by Andrew McKnight and Nadia Reis.
The extension was funded by a £1m term loan from The Bank of Scotland along with an overdraft facility. Andrew McKnight, the hotel’s MD, says, “We wanted to make sure the hotel not only maintained its standard of accommodation but actually brought facilities up a notch without changing the feel. It has been a substantial investment and a big job, but we’re really pleased with the finished result.
“The additional rooms mean we’re now able to welcome and accommodate discerning international travellers, which will make a substantial difference to the business.”
