The Scotland-based Perle Hotels has purchased the five-star Glencoe House Hotel, regarded as one of the most exclusive and luxurious hotels in the Highlands.

The hotel, which has 14 suites, sits in a commanding position overlooking the sea loch and mountains around Glencoe.

Glencoe House was built by Lord Strathcona in 1896 and offers the perfect site for those interested in exploring the stunning Highland landscape, getting a taste of walking in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland or tracing their genealogy.

Glencoe is steeped in history and perhaps best known for the bloody massacre in 1692 between the Campbell and the MacDonald clans.

The house was purchased by Roger Niemeyer in 2011 and over the past few years he and Judy Pate have restored and brought the property back to its former grandeur.

As part of the sale of Glencoe House, all existing employment contracts will be honoured and all staff will continue working for Glencoe House, which will be owned and operated by Perle Hotels, which also has a business in Oban.
