THE ANGUS HOTEL
The Angus Hotel was situated across the road from the Avonbridge Hotel and it occupied the piece of land where flats are currently built.
The Twaddle family owned the Avonbridge Hotel and the Angus Hotel was the annex. The family sold the Avonbridge to Mr Martello in the 1980’s but kept and ran the Angus as their main business.
David Laurie worked at the Angus Hotel in the mid 1970’s when Ken Twaddle and his sister Morag ran the business. David was a part time barman and he worked there for extra cash and he told Historic Hamilton that it was a fun place to work!
The building later fell into disrepair and had to be demolished. I wonder if it would give the Avonbridge a run for it’s money if it was still there today.
