Boutique hotel next to St. Andrews golf course to be sold

Dunvegan Hotel

Golf fans have a chance to acquire a boutique hotel 112 yards from the Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland. Sheena and Jack Willoughby, who have owned and operated the Dunvegan Hotel since 1994, announced on the establishment’s Facebook page and Twitter that they plan to sell the intimate hotel, although no asking price was made public.

The Dunvegan is located on the corner of Pilmour and Golf Place, close to the Old Course’s 18th green. The property includes the Golfers Corner Pub and Claret Jug restaurant, and both professional and amateur golfers have been spotted on the premises. (Tiger Woods and Clint Eastwood were both mentioned as guests.)

On the hotel's Facebook page, the owners declared that it was "time to smell the roses after a terrific 23 years," and that the sale process would not be hurried. "We are in no rush, we love what we do & will be taking this one step at a time. We look forward to seeing you all on your up and coming trips throughout 2016/17...We don't envisage anything changing in the foreseeable future and it is business as usual."
