Andy Murray ranked world’s third-best professional tennis player and Britain’s first (after defeating Roger Federer), recently purchased the $2.6 million Cromlix House Hotel in Stirlingshire, near Dunblane his hometown. A scenic 50 acre with woodland, garden, and lake, the hotel is currently abode to 14 bedroom suites, a chapel, reception hall, two drawing rooms, a conservatory, dining room, library, and meeting rooms. It’s this construction that would, by next spring 2014, open doors to a revamped luxurious destination!
With his plans to refurbish Cromlix and thus revolutionizing Dunblane, Murray has roped in the best in the industry. Andy has hired the experienced and hospitality specialists – Inverlochy Castle Management International (ICMI) to manage the Cromlix on his behalf. Sources reveal that the revamped luxury destination would boast of a Chez Roux restaurant. ICMI is in talks with renowned chef Albert Roux (owner of London-based Le Gavroche) regarding the same.
It seems like the Scottish tennis player is doing all he can “to give back to Dunblane,” the community he grew up in.
