Bruce & Co. are pleased to introduce to the market 'The Shop At The Pier', a popular and well supported local store situated in Gairloch. The business was started by our clients and has been under their very caring ownership for over 16 years and it has very reluctantly been offered for sale now due to their impending wish to retire. The store stocks a selection of general grocery and convenience items, cigarettes, alcohol, and household items as well as offering a post office service. The business trades successfully with a good turnover and an enviable loyal customer base. The majority of custom received is repeat business from local residents as the store is heavily relied upon and well supported by the local community. However, a large portion of revenue is derived from tourists visiting this popular area.

Gairloch is a village, civil parish and community on the shores of Loch Gairloch in Wester Ross, in the North-West Highlands of Scotland. A popular tourist destination in the summer months, Gairloch has a golf course, a museum, several hotels, a community centre, a leisure centre with sports facilities, a local radio station, beaches and nearby mountains. The Shop At The Pier occupies an enviable location overlooking the Loch on the road to the pier. The pier area has a pontoon facility enjoyed by many visiting yachts, and boat operators offer fishing and dolphin and whale spotting trips. The business is well located for the NC500 coastal route which attracts further custom and the world famous National Trust Inverewe Garden is just 7 miles away.

The business premises occupy a relatively modern purpose built property. The property is presented in excellent condition and has been extremely well maintained by the currently owners. On entrance to the shop, the customer service counter is located to the left hand side. The shop is well designed with functional shelving and display stands which create 3 shopping aisles and the post office service counter is located at the main service counter. There are staff WC facilities located on the upper floor and a substantial storage area located on this floor as well.

The business is situated in a highly visible trading position on the road towards the pier. Parking is available directly outside the property. There is also a small car park beside the building and sizeable coach/car parks are located at each end of Pier Road. Storage sheds are also located to the right hand-side of the property.

The property has mains water, drainage and electricity.
