Scotch business at heart of malt trail changes hands
A Whisky-themed cafe and gift shop at the heart of the malt whisky trail has changed hands.
The Whisky Castle and Highland Market Gift Shop in Tomintoul, Speyside, has been snapped up in a deal brokered by Bruce & Co.
Set in its own landscaped grounds, the property comprises two retail units, three-bedroom owner’s accommodation, a 60×20 foot barn and external storage sheds.
The 600 square foot Whisky Castle offers a selection of malt whisky and gifts and houses an 18-cover cafe which is said to trade throughout the year; the Highland Market Gift Shop is accessible both from the venue and the street.
The property was marketed by Bruce & Co as a business with potential for expansion due to a first floor which is currently used for storage but which could be developed to provide extra accommodation.
The site has previously been granted planning permission to build five two-storey cottages and a manager’s house.
Jayne Adamson, sales manager at Bruce & Co, said the firm is “really pleased to have come to a successful sale completion”.
“The sale went through without any issues arising, and we are pleased with the quick speed at which the sale was completed,” said Adamson.
