Go woke, go broke? Britain’s first vegan hotel which offers meat-free haggis, feather-free duvets…

Britain’s ‘first vegan hotel’ has gone on the market for nearly £1million, but the owners deny it is because of a downturn in business. Saorsa 1875 is an 11-bedroom hotel in a detached Victorian villa in Pitlochry, Highland Perthshire. It is known for being the first in the UK to be 100 per cent vegan with a ‘high quality’ bar, restaurant and lounge areas that offer a selection of plant-based meals. The hotel has been running as a getaway for vegetarians and vegans, taking up a ‘unique’ position in the hospitality sector. Owner Sandra Mclaren-Stewart confirmed the hotel will stay open until a buyer is found.

Ms Mclaren-Stewart said: ‘Bookings into 2024 and even 2025 have been great. ‘It’s not a case that we’re selling up because of a downturn in business, we’re selling because we’re moving on to a new and exciting project. ‘We’ve tried to deliver something different and I think it’s been taken on really well. ‘There’s no judgment here, we always want to knock your socks off and show what we can do. ‘We hope someone will come along and do what we’re doing and embrace it. ‘It’s been a very exciting and fast-paced five years.’ Guests in the five years Ms Mclaren-Stewart has owned the hotel have included comedian Alan Carr and other celebrities. There is also a large yurt, which is ideal to use as a function space or for yoga and wellness retreats. The hotel is listed on Graham & Sibbald’s website for offers around £950,000. Alistair Letham, a hotel and leisure consultant with the firm, commented: ‘Saorsa 1875 is an exceptional hotel delightfully refurbished to a great boutique hotel standard in a wonderful trading location. ‘The current business model sets Saorsa 1875 on its own pedestal and new owners can continue and expand on what has been created with the vegan business; or very easily open out the business to a wider offering.’ According to Saorsa’s website, the hotel offers tasting menus which are ‘completely plant-based and showcase local, seasonal, and foraged produce’. The 19th-century hotel has 1.8 acres of land.
