A WELL-known local travel firm has been sold for £2million.

John Semple Travel has been based in Bishopbriggs town centre since the mid-1980s.

Last week the family business was bought over by the Minoan Group.

Director John Semple, whose father, John, the founder of the business died last month aged 81, said: “All the staff are staying on and the John Semple name will continue to operate as John Semple Travel.”

Mr Semple said it felt right to be part of what the Minoan Group is planning to do in Scotland and the UK.

Around 30 staff are employed at the Bishopbriggs-based business.
