Shaun and Jenny McKivragan have sold The Airds Hotel & Restaurant in Argyll to Benjamin Andrews. The couple have run the hotel since buying it for £1m in 2003, and are now retiring.
It’s Mr Andrews first hospitality business in Scotland, and he has revealed plans to extend the hotel’s fine dining offering, increase the accommodation on offer and create new outdoor seating.
Colliers and Christie + Co acted as as joint agents with Colliers associate director Robert Smithson saying, “I am thrilled that the Airds has been sold to someone who will continue the legacy of the McKivragans and continue to offer the high levels of quality and service the hotel is famous for which brings customers back to the area year after year. I wish Benjamin the best of luck with his operation of the hotel.”
