Fife country house hotel for sale after four decades of family ownership

A COUNTRY house hotel near Dunfermline is expected to attract interest from regional and national players after being put on the market with a price-tag of £3.25 million.

The long-running directors of Keavil House Hotel, which has 70 bedrooms, a health club and sits in 12 acres of landscaped gardens, are selling the property as part of plans to wind down towards retirement. The four-star hotel is owned by the family-run Queensferry Hotels, which has owned Keavil House for nearly 40 years.
