The Dunvegan Hotel, one of the most iconic 19th holes in the golfing world, has been sold to Forth Bridge Capital LLP, a consortium of golfing enthusiasts from Canada and the USA.
Former owners, Jack and Sheena Willoughby, who owned and managed the business for the past 23 years, will maintain an interest in the hotel and, as partners, assist the new owners going forward.
"We are a delighted to have concluded a deal with the principals at Forth Bridge Capital. Having been owners for the past 23 years," said the couple in a statement. "It's obviously a bittersweet time for us hence we were always hoping to find buyers of a likeminded nature to ourselves to take the Dunvegan into its next era. There is no doubt we have accomplished this goal as the new owners are all golfers and are well known to us and to the Dunvegan."
A Forth Bridge executive added: "We are very happy to be involved with Jack and Sheena who have been a pleasure to deal with and we are committed to ensuring The Dunvegan remains one of golf's best experiences. We look forward to a long and exciting future for our long-standing patrons, our new friends and golfers from around the world."
