Plans for a major transformation of the former Letham Grange luxury golf resort in Angus could be dead in the water.

At its height, the complex just north of Arbroath boasted a luxury hotel, two 18-hole courses, curling rink and function suite. Letham Grange Hotel is boarded up and vandal-hit.

It drew players from around the world and was a top-class wedding venue.

Now there are fears the boarded up and vandal-hit mansion might never be saved.

Its Old Course gained a reputation as an formidable test of golfers.

Legendary commentator Peter Alliss filmed at Letham Grange for his Play Better Golf television series.

Taiwanese businessman Peter Liu later bought the resort – but by 2011 its doors had closed.

A costly ownership battle led to it being returned to Liu family control in a landmark 2018 ruling.

Building at risk

But the early 19th Century mansion continues to languish on Scotland’s buildings at risk register, after concerns about the state of decline were first flagged almost a decade ago.

Letham Grange golfers kept the courses running until 2019.
