The Forsinard Hotel, located close to the RSPB Forsinard Reserve in the heart of the Flow County, has been sold, it has been confirmed.

The run-down property had been due to go under the hammer in an online auction earlier this month with a minimum opening bid set at £98,000.

However Auction House Scotland said that the former hunting lodge which dates back to 1802, had been sold before bidding could begin.

The identity of the purchaser and the amount it sold for are not being disclosed.

A spokesman for Auction House Scotland said: "We did sell prior to auction and the hotel did achieve in excess of the asking price.

"There was a lot of interest and someone wanted to make an offer before the auction and the seller was happy."

Set in two acres of land, the hotel closed some years ago. Owner and staff accommodation were included in the sale.
