De Vere Plans Golf Resort for South East

According to The Scotsmand property developer Manor Kingdom Estates and luxury hotel operator De Vere have teamed up to create a five-star resort in the Scottish Borders which they say will create 300 jobs and invest up to £50m in the Rutherford Castle Hotel resort in West Linton. Planning permission is being sought from Scottish Borders Council with hopes for a response before the end of the year.

A spokesman for Manor Kingdom said southeast Scotland lacks a luxury resort hotel on a par with Cameron House, Turnberry in Ayrshire and St Andrews Bay Hotel.

He said: "Rutherford Castle offers easy access to the city of Edinburgh and the airport. It will attract international visitors to the Scottish Borders and retain them for a longer stay."
