Historic Clyde hotel sold, plans to refurbish

Dunstan House exterior.

A historic hotel in Clyde has new owners who plan to refresh the property’s accommodation block.

The sale of Dunstan Hotel was finalised this month, with Timeless Land Investments Ltd confirmed to purchase the old pub from the previous owner Kevin Gallagher.

The building consists of two sections, one of which is the accommodation building which was sold to new owner David Ritchie.

Ritchie, who also owns Olivers Lodge and Stables and a restaurant on the same street, has plans to refresh the newly acquired property.

The former Dunstan Hotel was built in the 1860s as accommodation for miners, horsing stables and a stopping point for coaches. The current building dates from 1900 when a new building was erected.

The property went through many hands of ownership before being restored as a bed and breakfast in the 1970s. In 2006 it was revived again as a boutique hotel offering, known as the Dunstan House.
