The Guest House & Restaurant has been placed on the market due to the current proprietors impending retirement. The Guest House trades throughout the year from a good mix of accommodation and food. The quality of the Guest House & Restaurant is reflected in the awards it currently holds such as Eat Scotland Silver Awards 08/09/10/11 and is also a long standing member of the Taste of Scotland. Additional marketing is carried out through its own informative website www.theparkguesthouse.co.uk. The business is also a member of Eat Scotland and VisitScotland. It enjoys much repeat custom, particularly due to its location and the exceptional food on offer. Many of the visitors include golfers, outdoor enthusiasts, business visits and it also plays an integral role in the local community as many locals use the restaurant. Although the Guest House is trading extremely successfully, it still has potential to grow income further and also to expand the property.
