Former Liberal leader Lord Steel is set to turn the 16th-century tower he owns into a “boutique” hotel and events venue.
Lord Steel is set to pass Aikwood Tower, near Selkirk in the Scottish Borders, over to his son, Rory.
Built in the 1530s, the tower boasts five bedrooms and a vaulted dining room, as well as a hall which could be used for major functions.
“Ever since Aikwood Tower has been in the Steel family, it has grown a reputation amongst family and friends for being an antidote to the hubbub of modern living through its amazing hospitality and relaxing atmosphere,” said Rory Steel.
“By allowing visitors to the Scottish Borders to come and experience it for themselves, we hope many more people will come away with their own special memories.”
