A SCOTS-BORN international hotelier has launched The Wee Hotel Company to invest in special properties around Scotland.
Gordon Campbell Gray, former Hotelier of the Year and founder of Campbell Gray Hotels, is looking for suitable locations with an emphasis on authenticity and Scottish food and ingredients, hospitality and warm welcoming environments.
The Pierhouse Hotel and Seafood Restaurant at Port Appin in Argyll, which offers stunning views to the islands of Lismore and Mull, has just been announced as The Wee Hotel Company’s first purchase.
Gordon Campbell Gray said: “I’ve been lucky enough to live and work in many countries across the world but I really feel that few can rival the sheer magnificence of Scotland when it comes to scenery, food and drink, and I’m now ready to come home.
“I live in Argyll and realised one day that I always had that going back to school feeling when I was leaving to head off on more travels, so I finally said to myself – then why am I leaving?”
With an emphasis on integrity rather than excess, The Wee Hotel Company will give guests a genuine introduction to Scottish hospitality in stylish, contemporary surroundings.
Food and drink will be an integral part of the philosophy and experience with menus showcasing local produce and giving a real sense of place.
Gordon added: “For several years I’ve wanted to come home to Scotland. The Wee Hotel Company is the result of this ambition and the start of an exciting new chapter in my life.”
Further acquisitions by The Wee Hotel Company will be announced in spring 2019.
