Administrative / Biographical History

The company owned and leased to tenants, licensed properties throughout Scotland. By at least 1951 the company was a subsidiary of William Murray & Co Ltd , brewers of Edinburgh, and may have been from the outset of the company's birth. The company's assets were transferred to United Caledonian Breweries Ltd on 1 January 1963, and Inns and Hotels (Scotland) Ltd ceased trading, although directors reports and annual accounts were produced for a further 5 years.
