1964

A new £250,000 hotel was given the go-ahead to be built at Burnbrae in Bearsden.

Restauranteur Reo Stakis was granted permission by Dunbartonshire County Planning Authority and the Burgh Licensing Court.

However, the development had been beset with problems which created long delays in the construction of the hotel.

When it was finally built it had two storeys with 15 rooms and adjoining bathrooms on the upper floor.

Downstairs there was a vestible lounge with bar and large function suite covering 2,000 square feet, and a dinning room restaurant covering 1,300 square feet.

A cocktail bar and reception area were also on ground level.
