Business offers scope for development, agent says
OPERATORS with a keen interest in whisky might be interested in a property on the malt whisky trail which has come onto the books of property firm Bruce & Co.
Located on the main street of the village of Tomintoul, the Whisky Castle and Highland Market Gift Shop are said to offer scope for further development.
The property, which is set in landscaped grounds, comprises two retail units, three-bedroom owner’s accommodation, a 111 square metre barn and external storage sheds.
Bruce & Co said there is scope to develop the business further by creating accommodation in the large first-floor space, which is currently used for storage. There is also granted planning permission to build five two-storey holiday cottages and a manager’s house.
Safa Sultan, who is handling the sale at Bruce & Co, said the business represents a “great opportunity” for new owners.
“Its admirable location benefits from repeat custom and it currently holds an esteemed reputation for selecting the very best of independent bottlings and selecting casks for Whisky Castle own brand labels,” said Sultan.
“The business currently markets well through a variety of paper advertising and its own informative website however there is still potential for growth, simple modernisation of their current advertising and expansion of the property. It’s an opportunity not to be missed!”
Bruce & Co is marketing the property at offers in the region of £435,000 for the freehold.
