Discover Tigh Mor Hotel's History

Ever wondered what was here before Tigh Mor became Tigh Mor?

Well, Nikki McMurray remembers the area before hand, having grown up in the Brig o' Turk just a short distance from Tigh Mor's front door. Mrs McMurray's parents owned The Old Manse, a little B&B just down the road and saw what was once named the Trossachs Hotel evolve into the Tigh Mor that you see here today.

The oldest parts of the building were constructed back in the 19th century but since then the building has been renovated, extended and redesigned. The Trossachs Hotel was brought from the owner John McGoven in 1992 and Mrs McMurray recalls there were two regular guests to The Old Manse at this time who happened to be part of the construction team working on the project.

The two guests stayed for about a year while the building was completely gutted. The east wing was rebuilt and the west wing gained a five-storey extension and attic wing. Tigh Mor reopened in 1993, fresh and grand and ready for guests. Mrs McMurray recalls being one of the very first people to set foot inside as her and her family were shown around.

The building retains many of its former charms, in particular the imposing towers and the conical roofs that look so majestic on the banks of the Loch Achray. The pictures are courtesy of Mrs. McMurray who kindly got in touch to share her story.
