Notes to editors:

Boclair House Hotel, a Grade B Listed building is fronted by landscaped garden grounds which are a local landmark and a favourite spot for wedding photographs. The building is tudor gothic in style, with a castellated tower and a series of impressive archways creating a covered walkway reminiscent of Italian cloisters.

The building was constructed in 1890, commissioned by three Buchanan sisters of Bellfield. It was called the Buchanan Retreat and provided accommodation for poorer members of the Buchanan clan in their declining year. Latterly, it became a home for elderly gentlemen until acquired by the Burgh of Bearsden and opened as the Municipal Buildings by Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon in 1962. Most recently the building was used as an office by East Dunbartonshire Council.

Manorview Hotels has seven other luxury boutique hotels across the central belt of Scotland: The Bowfield Hotel & Country Club, Howwood; The Busby Hotel, Clarkston; The Commercial, Wishaw; The Lynnhurst Hotel, Johnstone; The Redhurst Hotel, Giffnock; The Torrance Hotel, East Kilbride and the recently acquired Cornhill Castle in Biggar.
