Pitlochry is a popular tourist destination and is located within the council area of Perth and Kinross, on the banks of the River Tummel.
Owners Gordon and Lauren Fyfe said: “The Claymore is a fantastic business with scope for future development. This purchase is the culmination of our search for a new lifestyle business in Pitlochry. We have been focused on this area for over two years and delighted that we have now successfully acquired the business we had our hearts set on. We look forward to taking over from Di and Graeme who have been instrumental to the success of the business.”
Graeme and Di McFarlane, who are retiring after the sale, said: “We have been delighted with the efforts of Graham + Sibbald to dispose of our business. They have worked with us throughout the marketing of the business keeping us up to date with interest and negotiating an excellent deal that we are delighted with. We would strongly recommend Peter Seymour and his team to anyone wishing to sell their business.”
