Inside the luxury hotel in Scotland that Andy Murray bought for £2million | The Sun
January 5, 2023
ANDY Murray and his wife Kim own a luxury hotel that has a strong family connection and history.
The Cromlix hotel in Kinbuck, Scotland has been owned by the tennis ace and his wife since 2013, but has been an important place for the Murray family since the early 80s.
It sits close to Andy's home town of Dunblane and he has owned it for the last ten years, after splashing out £2million on the property.
Andy and Kim had their wedding reception at the venue in 2015, like several generations of Murrays before them, while his brother Jamie was married there.
Kim explained to the Times why it is such a special place for their family.
She said: “We have owned Cromlix since 2013 but its connection to our family extends back far beyond that.

“In 1982 Andy’s grandparents, Roy and Shirley Erskine, held their silver wedding anniversary at the hotel …Golden and diamond celebrations followed, as well as blessings, birthdays and three Murray weddings — one of which was our own in 2015."
The pair are preparing to renovate the property and have closed it for the next three months, as they look to breathe new life into the 15-room venue.
Kim is personally overseeing the work and said she wants to it to be more to her and Andy's tastes than it is at the moment.
She continued: “This is very much a family affair and I am delighted to be getting involved in overseeing this makeover, selecting wallpapers, toiletries, logos and everything in between, so that Cromlix becomes more reflective of our tastes and attitudes.”
