THE recently opened Lost Guest House on Merchant Street has a rather unusual name and manager Chris Rigby has explained why.

The new guest house opened just two weeks ago after renovation work was completed.

Chris explained: “This previously was an old guest house but I got planning permission to build a conservatory extension and en-suites for all 14 rooms.”

The new Peterhead guest house isn’t the only Lost accommodation in the North-east as Chris explained: “We already have a Lost Guest House in Aberdeen and decided to open another one so after looking around Scotland and England, we decided on Peterhead because the new prison is being built, the harbour extension work and the Carbon Capture Project.

“It is a good time for Peterhead, there are lots of positive things going on.”

Chris also explained the reason behind the Lost name: “I work alongside Norman Duncan and he lives in Strathdon, nearby there is a place called Lost.

“It is quite popular as its signs get stolen quite a lot! We decided to name the guest house after it because it is a memorable name and we can say that Lost does in fact exist.”

Chris is currently working on an outdoor seating area at the guest house for the summer.
