It has been brought to the market with an asking price of £1.75 million by specialist business property adviser Christie & Co. The property dates back to 1870 and has 30 bedrooms, nine of which are in the adjacent Castle Lodge building – and offers "uninterrupted” views across the Perthshire countryside and historic town of Crieff.
The site sits within about three and a half acres of gardens and woodland, while the site also has a lower ground spa, a rooftop terrace/restaurant with views of Strathearn Valley, and a pool and leisure club. There is also a residents’ cinema that can be used for small meetings of up to 12 people.
Christie & Co also said the Knock Castle business is well-regarded as a wedding venue, and is also popular for leisure and spa breaks as well as conference meetings. “The hotel offers a first-class opportunity for a discerning operator to further transform an already-popular venue to the next level,” the property advisory firm said.
The sale includes two additional two-bedroom flats – one in the main hotel building and the other on the top floor of the Castle Lodge – both of which could be used as owner's accommodation or for staff. The seller will also accept separate offers for Knock Castle and Castle Lodge, for asking prices of £1.25m and £500,000 respectively.
Brian Sheldon, regional director (Scotland) at Christie & Co, said: “This presents a great opportunity for the discerning buyer to further enhance this established business and increase income and profit.”
