THE HOTEL made famous by the 1983 movie Local Hero is to get new owners.

Sue Johnson is to become the landlady of the Pennan Inn, the only hotel in the Aberdeenshire village.

The hotel had been on the market since last April and had been closed since the summer, when mudslides swamped the area.

Sue, who runs the village B&B, will take over the six-bedroom hotel in May.

Harbourmaster Baden Gibson said the sale was vital for the village.

"The sale is just great news after everything that happened last year," he said.

"We need the inn to be open for visitors if this village is to survive."
