Tenure: Freehold

This development opportunity is situated on the main road in the village of Munlochy on the popular Black Isle, serving a population of approximately 1000 within the village and outlying rural areas. This popular village attracts a large amount of passing trade. The present owner runs the local Post Office from within this building, and should a prospective new buyer wish to continue this they would have to apply to the Post Office for acceptance. There is no requirement for any new owner to continue to operate a Post Office from these premises. The property would indeed lend itself to office space, retail unit, coffee shop or as conversion to a residential property.

The current owners installed a fully fitted kitchen, purchased a Marcus expobar coffee machine and chiller and leased out the area as a café/coffee shop. This proved to be successful; popular with both the locals and the large amount of passing trade on their way back and forward from Inverness who stopped for carry out coffees etc. When the lessee left the owners did not actively pursue a replacement as they were putting the business to the market, however everything required to operate as a café still remains.

The owners have always operated a small trading area, previously they sold a small selection of scarves, jewellery and cosmetics, but more recently a selection of cards and stationery supplies. There is certainly potential to convert to a larger retail unit selling a range of gifts, products or services. There have been previous discussions regarding a hairdresser renting the space or an arts and crafts gallery with an internet presence. Located to the rear of the property is the toilet and a small office currently used as a sorting office.

The Village of Munlochy has one other main shop, which is a Scotmid convenience store. Munlochy Primary School is one of the feeder schools within the catchment area of the very popular Fortrose Academy. The property benefits from being next door to a free car park which has space for approximately 20 cars. Munlochy tends to be the main route from the A9 and on to other villages within the Black Isle, Avoch, Fortrose and Cromarty.

It is the desire of the owners to pursue other business interests' which places this opportunity on the market.
