Suie Lodge, built in 1890, has served generations of holiday-makers, field sportsfolk and bar regulars in Kincraig and, Strutt & Parker point out, the property – formerly known at the Suie Hotel – has known only two owners in its 131 years.

Current proprietors, Mike and Wendy Welding, acquired it from the McBain family in 1997.

Over the years the Welding family has developed a part of the grounds for their own housing.

Mrs Welding told the Strathy: “We are hoping to retire to the comfort of our new house. We have no plans to leave the village.”

A spokesperson for the agents said: “Our clients used to operate the business as a fully serviced hotel, but now operate effectively as a whole house rental with the addition of the self-catering cottage in the grounds.

“They have also leased the bar on a short-term let to a local operator, although vacant possession can be obtained for new owners.”

The property – on the market for offers over £795,000 – has in its time featured on Channel 4’s smash-hit Relocation, relocation, and was much admired by Kirsty Allsopp and Phil Spencer.
