About the day

The event will be led by Peter Sunderland, Plunkett business adviser and Gartmore resident, who has been heavily involved not only with the Black Bull Hub and Pub, but also in the village’s community shop, one of the oldest community shops in Scotland.

The day will include a tour of the Black Bull, which offers accommodation as well as food and drink options, a talk about the pub’s journey, a tasty light lunch, advice on making the transition from ‘concept’ to ‘trading’ and a Q&A session. Plunkett staff will be on hand.
