Kings Arms Asset Transfer

Ballantrae | 2020 | Commission

The Kings Arms in Ballantrae has significant opportunities for growth but has been underinvested by the owners who were keen to sell. We undertook both community consultation and in-depth business assessment to present a way forward for a re-imagined local inn.

"The work that Community Enterprise did on the feasibility study they produced, in helping us to draw up a business plan and contributing to our funding application, allowed us to make a strong bid to the Scottish Land Fund. In addition, working with them on these things helped us to become even more clear about our aims and aspirations."

"They added value - offering insights from experience from previous contracts while maintaining client confidentiality - integrated well with our existing project team and were very much a part of it. They exceeded our expectations in terms of outputs, commitment to our project, and responsiveness. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to others."

"Only time will tell whether the predictions and projections are correct but we were happy with what CE produced as were our funders."
