The Orange Order’s Scottish headquarters in North Lanarkshire has been sold in a cut price deal worth £125,000.

The organisation’s base near Motherwell train station had been on the market since June for offers over £140,000.

It is understood that documents have revealed that it has since been sold for £15,000 below its asking price, to a Glasgow-based property developer.

The Orange Order originally moved into the building after selling their former site in Glasgow during the pandemic for £200,000.

It had previously planned a museum and shop, however it emerged last year that the organisation had halted a £300,000 refit of the building amid claims of “a lack of cash”.

An emergency meeting of the Grand Orange Lodge of Scotland was held over the claims.

A sales brochure for the HQ near Motherwell train station described the site as carrying “great potential” and that it could be turned into a “modern bar restaurant”.
