Laggan grows accommodation offering

A FAMILY run business in the region has expanded with the acquisition of a hotel.

Laggan has added The Murray Arms in Gatehouse of Fleet to its portfolio of accommodation.

It is undergoing a refurbishment and will reopen as a boutique hotel in March, acting as an extension of the Laggan site.

Keeping to the town’s history and culture, the hotel will feature the Robert Burns reading room; a nod to the poet who famously drafted ‘Scots Wha Hae’ at the hotel.

Duncan McConchie, owner of Laggan, said: “Providing our guests with the best experience is of utmost importance to us, so four months ago, when the opportunity to expand our offering with The Murray Arms came about, it was a project not to be missed.”

The interior has been designed by Vicki McConchie, owner of Laggan, who added: “Similarly to GG’s Yard the Murray Arm’s interiors will portray a feeling of modern Scottish undertones. With colour pallets set to compliment each other the rooms will be assembled with rich textures and earthy hues. Soft yet atmospheric lighting will carry through the building to create a warm and welcoming ambience. The historic association with Robert Burns will be remembered in elements of wall art positioned carefully within the building. Stone flags will run throughout the bottom floor to create a more traditional look that’s beautiful yet robust. Mirrored areas will fabricate an added feeling of space and light in areas which currently feel darker.”
