About Us

Hospitality is at our heart

Our passion for the hospitality and events industry started over 15 years ago – running hotels, buying and selling businesses, marketing some of Scotland’s iconic locations – we’ve done it all and more.

With a drive to help hospitality businesses strive and not just survive, our development continues across Scotland and the UK. Today, we run, support and own over 2500+ rooms across Scotland and England with a pipeline continuing to grow.
