SCOTTISH HOTELS ATTRACT OVERSEAS INVESTORS

Whilst some areas of the commercial property market are marking time post-Brexit, the Scottish hotels sector appears to be bucking the trend.

Respected commercial and residential agent Savills reveals that this particular market has attracted overseas investment of over £51m in the current year to date. This represents a six-fold increase on last year’s annual total of £7.8m.

A large proportion of this investment has come from US investors, who have pumped over £35 million into hotel investment in Edinburgh so far this year.

Indian investors also have shown increased interest with investment in the sector estimated at £8.3 million.
