The new plans would see the Crook Inn reopened as a pub as well as the construction of a residential development
Plans to reopen one of the oldest pubs in Scotland are set to be unveiled.
An application is being lodged with Scottish Borders Council for the scheme at the Crook Inn in Tweedsmuir, which was first licensed in 1604.
Owner James Doonan has previously tried to get permission to convert the historic property into flats.
However, he said the strength of local opposition had persuaded him to try to include reopening the famous pub as part of a set of revised plans.
Earlier this year the Scottish Government rejected a scheme to turn the historic inn into a residential development.
Prior to that local residents had formed a community company with the goal of buying and reopening the premises as a pub.
Now Mr Doonan has modified his plans for the site to accommodate the revival of the inn alongside residential properties.
He said: "I have been impressed with the energy and commitment that has been demonstrated in the recent campaign to save the Crook Inn.
"And I am keen to give the Tweedsmuir Community Company the opportunity to secure its future.
"As a local resident myself I will be pleased if we can all work together to make it happen."
