A well established family friendly good class country tavern nestling in a lovely setting in the heart of Central Scotland amidst the Ochil Hills.
THE PROPERTY
The Sheriffmuir Inn can trace its origins to the mid-1800’s and is set in grounds of approximately 6.94 acres. The property is well furnished and equipped to a very high standard. It is substantially built of white painted stone walls with pitched slate roofs.

PUBLIC AREAS
The pub and restaurant is surrounded by glorious countryside close to the Sheriffmuir Battlefield [1715]. The comfortable bar doubles up as a waiting area for guests who have booked a table in the adjoining restaurant. Flagstone floors, hand-carved bar top and contemporary ironwork fittings contrast with softer furnishings, mostly finished in Hunting MacRae tartan – as just along the road is the MacRae Memorial, commemorating the local clan that was all but wiped out in 1715 at the Battle of Sheriffmuir. It was a tactically inconclusive engagement and a rare “draw” in British battlefield history.
The main entrance to the Inn is protected by a porch, and leads into the main lounge bar area, most attractively appointed with an open high vaulted ceiling, a gallery, exposed stonework and many fine features appropriate to a quality rural tavern. Steps lead down to a small lounge area with comfortable arm chairs and fireplace etc. and opening into the dining/restaurant area with seating for up to 60.

LETTING BEDROOMS
There are four letting bedrooms on the first floor that sleep 8. The bedrooms are well appointed with high quality furnishings and have lovely views across open countryside. There are full en-suite bathrooms.
Alternatively, these first floor rooms can be used to provide comfortable owner’s accommodation.

SERVICE AREAS
A particularly attractive and important feature is the very well equipped kitchens. Spacious and easily worked, and include wash-up area, cooking/preparation area, walk-in chill, dry goods store, staff room, laundry, beer store.

OUTSIDE
Arranged at the front side and the rear is an extensive tarmacadam car park. Enclosed children’s adventure play area. A level area close to the Inn is set out and serviced for marquees. Grass paddocks. 6.94 acres in all.

SERVICES
Mains electricity, private water and drainage. Biomass heating system supplemented by Propane gas. An old stable block has been converted to house the biomass installation. A Fischer PX50 and a PX25 wood pellet boiler have been installed in series to provide 75kWth output to meet the heating and hot water requirements of the Inn, its kitchens and for its guests 2000 litres of thermal storage have been installed to provide instant heat to meet peak loads. A 5.6 tonne wood pellet hopper as been installed within the outbuilding which receives blown deliveries.
The purchaser of the Sheriffmuir Inn will enter into an Energy Supply Contract (ESCo) with the Scot Heating Company (SHC) for the supply of heat at an agreed pence per kWh basis which provides the Inn with an approximate 28% reduction in fuel costs when compared with LPG fuel.
