The Scottish Property Investment Review 2016, developed by Scottish Development International in association with MSCI, shows a strong performance for Scottish leased hotels and impressive returns for investors, with a return of 12.6% year on year in 2015.
The research shows that a strong level of capital growth, with 13.1% growth recorded for the period, helped Scottish leased hotels outperform the retail and office sectors and the majority of European hotel markets.
Strong income return, and the fact that capital values remain discounted, has made assets in Scotland a competitive investment compared to England, especially London, and most other European markets.
We have supported companies to invest over £330 million in capital expenditure to build new hotels and refurbish existing buildings in the last four years alone. These investments also introduce new business and leisure tourists to Scotland.
We can help you with:

- Identifying partners, investors, developers and operators
