A north-east pub made famous for its role in a hit movie has been put on the market for offers of over £400,000.
The Pennan Inn became a popular tourist attraction after it was featured in the 1983 comedy Local Hero.
Hundreds of people from around the world still flock to the village to take photographs of the pub and the iconic red telephone box outside.
The landmark is now being offered to prospective buyers with £425,000 to spare.
The bar and restaurant only re-opened to the public in 2009 after being closed for two years when its last owner emigrated to Australia.
CCL Property Ltd, which is selling the premises on the current owners’ behalf, said the business was in “excellent order” and was ready for a new landlord to stamp his or her mark on it.
The Moray-based firm added: “The Pennan Inn and iconic red phone box, have been made famous by the 1983 film Local Hero, which visitors from all over the world come to see.
“The village is a haven of tranquility and an area with some outstanding natural wildlife, including colonies of birds, dolphins, seals and even the occasional whale can be seen out at sea.”
Current owners Peter and Nikki Simpson could not be reached for a comment on Friday and calls to the inn were not being answered.
Earlier this year, Mr Simpson hit out about the phone box’s state of disrepair.
He enlisted the support of local MP Eilidh Whiteford and Pennan councillor Ross Cassie, and was successful in pressuring BT to repaint the kiosk and replace the broken door.
Last night, Mr Cassie said he would be concerned if the inn stopped training, but he was optimistic that the venue’s star quality would shine through.
“Having it operating as a hotel is what attracts visitors to Pennan and keeps them coming back,” he said.
“I was speaking to the owner last week and was aware then that he was thinking about putting it up for sale.
“We don’t know how long it will take to sell, but it definitely has the potential to attract more tourists to the area.”
