Kingarroch Inn


On the afternoon of Sunday, 13 April 2014, a fire broke out here at the Kingarroch Inn. The fire spread quickly throughout the building and, despite the efforts of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS), much of the Inn was damaged. Thankfully, nobody was injured.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.

We would like to thank the men and women of the SFRS; they worked tirelessly not only to contain the fire but also to guarantee the safety of all those concerned. We would also like to thank Police Scotland.

We hope that the Kingarroch Inn will reopen. We face an uphill struggle but we know that with hard work any obstacle can be overcome. It won’t be easy but, in time, we will get there.

We will, of course, keep you updated in the days, weeks and months ahead. We have a lot to do. The Kingarroch Inn was more than business. It was our home. A home we loved. A home we hope to return to. Already, we’ve received offers of help, messages of condolence and support, best wishes for the future and more than a few shoulders to lean on (and cry on!) Thank you. All of you. You cannot imagine how much it means to us.

With our heartfelt gratitude and best wishes

Bryan & Michelle Coghill.
