Dunvegan in St Andrews goes on the market.

One of Scotland's most famous 19th Holes is available to purchase if you have a spare £3 million or so to offload!

The Dunvegan Hotel which has offered St Andrews visitors the chance to rub shoulders with the great and the good as well as just relax in the company of caddies, an international clientele and absorb a long history. It is one of those pubs that you just have to tick off the list. For me Doheny and Nesbits in Dublin is my first port of call; Sloans in Glasgow when I get off the train and Cafe Royal on Rose Street in the capital plays a similar role.

For golfers to St Andrews the Dunvegan has similar cache and attraction.

The Dunvegan, has welcomed Hollywood superstars Clint Eastwood and Sean Connery not to mention former president George HW Bush and the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong is now on the market and current owners Jack Willoughby and his wife Sheena are moving on.

“We've had the time of our lives running the hotel and have loved meeting and hosting so many golfers, golfing celebrities and our true core customers, the not so famous golfing visitors, alike. You just can’t describe the atmosphere at the height of the season, but the place just seems to have a magnetic pull of people from all four corners of the world.”

A SIGTOA member confirmed the attraction, "There are very few of our clients that will not at least ask about The Dunvegan and many if not staying will pop in for a pint after their round or some food. It is an institution in the town and many a good night has been had in there by all of us!"

Pretty certain however that whoever takes this historic venue over will not be turning it into a boutique cafe...
