Caledonian Leisure, which operates under the Caledonian Travel and UKBreakaways brands, has purchased in partnership with investors the Claymore Hotel in Arrochar, Scotland. The 96-bedroom hotel, which has origins as a grand manor house and is idyllically positioned on the banks of Loch Long, is already one of Caledonian Travel’s most popular hotels welcoming a large percentage of repeat customers as well as new followers attracted by its Scottish hospitality and lochside location offering panoramic views.

Following the acquisition, the hotel will be rebranded as the Caledonian Claymore Hotel. The present General Manager of the hotel, Gary Watson, and his team will join the Caledonian family as part of the takeover. Gary said: “I am delighted the team at Caledonian have taken over the hotel and we can deliver an investment plan for the hotel. I have worked with the team at Caledonian for many years and have welcomed thousands of customers over this time, many who have become friends of all the staff at the Claymore Hotel.”

Graham Rogers, Managing Director at Caledonian Leisure, added: “The completion of the Claymore Hotel firmly enhances Caledonian’s position as one of the fastest growing stories in the travel sector as our brands continue to go from strength to strength. The growth of our business and the response from our customers has been exceptional, and we look forward to this continued investment to deliver more excellent and diverse leisure products to our customers.”
