GREAT NEWS for one of the OLDEST INNS in SCOTLAND ! SAVING HISTORY

Abandoned for over 10 years due to proposals to convert the historic inn into apartments, this met with much local opposition and the plans were rejected by local councilors.

It is one of many claimants to be the oldest inn in Scotland and was licensed in 1604. It has served as a coaching in, a Post Office and source of employment. In the early 20th century a halt was built on the Talla Railway to serve it. The inn attracted much passing trade from the laborers who were building the Talla Reservoir, which the railway was built to serve.

Following an appeal hearing on 18 November 2008, a decision notice was issued by the DPEA which finally dismissed the appeal. This meant that planning permission was not granted for the change of use of the historic Crook Inn to residential accommodation, giving scope for the inn to reopen once again if it could be purchased.

After a lengthy campaign by the local community to secure ownership of the Crook Inn in order to reinvigorate it, the Tweedsmuir Community Company raised the asking price of £160,000 and bought the property. The Tweedsmuir Community Company obtained a Development Grant from Big Lottery in 2014 to redesign and renovate the historic Crook Inn. The plans obtained planning permission in 2015. The rest of the land at the site was purchased in 2015 with grants from the Scottish Land Fund, SSE Clyde Border and the Infinis Glenkerie Community Funds. Grants are being sought to create a multi-faceted Crook Inn Community Hub to serve the Upper Tweed community and tourism.
