A mansion in the Highlands of Scotland that was once used as a bolthole by Coco Chanel is to be converted into a hotel.
The Rosehall Estate in Sutherland, has been in the market for £2.5m since 2015, but a buyer has now been found, according to reports in The Scotsman.
The derelict mansion was once the meeting place of French fashion designer Coco Chanel and Hugh Grosvenor, the second Duke of Westminster. Its interiors were redesigned by the French designer in the 1920s and her handblocked wallpaper is still featured in the property.
Rosehill was owned by the Duke of Westminster when Coco Chanel was his lover between 1923 and 1929. She is reported to have decorated each room in floral and pinstriped wallpaper modelled in her flat in Paris.
The B-listed property has pre-existing planning permission to convert the house into a 20-bedroom hotel and build five guest lodges within its 550 acres.
