A thriving Restaurant and Fishery business, the Water of Coyle Fishery and Waterfront Restaurant is well located off the A70 Ayr - Dumfries Road in Ayrshire. In a well wooded and highly scenic situation, the Fishery is close to Ayr (about 5 miles) whilst Glasgow is about 30 miles distant (a 45 minute drive via the M77 Road). There is an estimated population of over 2 million within 1 hour's drive of the Fishery. Prestwick Airport is about 10 miles away with regular flights to London and European destinations. Ayrshire has many other leisure and holiday attractions. The coast is renowned for its many golf courses including the world famous favourites at Royal Troon, Prestwick and Turnberry, all located within a 30 minutes drive. Alloway, close to Ayr, was the birthplace of Robert Burns. There are excellent outdoor and walking opportunities in the South Ayrshire hills whilst Glasgow, is an hour's drive to the north.

The property extends to a total of 22.4 acres. This includes 3.5 acres of ponds, extensive hardstanding car parking, paddocks and mature woodland.

The Waterfront Restaurant is a substantial timber building built in the last 10 years under a pitched slate roof. It is in a delightful position overlooking the Coyle Water Fishery Ponds. With up to 100 covers, light and spacious, there is an area of decking and a large fully fitted and equipped commercial kitchen with chill rooms. A popular café and restaurant with drinks license, the Waterfront is open from 10am to 4.30pm 7 days a week. There is significant scope to develop the business with evening opening.

Adjacent to the restaurant is the Fishery lodge which is a portable timber structure with kitchen and deck to front and back. A profitable Fishery business is being run from the property. Trading account details for both the Waterfront Restaurant and the Fishery are available but only to seriously interested parties who have noted interest through their solicitors.

Historically planning permission (now lapsed) was obtained for holiday chalets. There is considerable potential within the extensive grounds to further develop a diversified leisure and holiday business, subject to the necessary consents being obtained.

There is also fishing for brown trout on the Water of Coyle.

From Ayr, take the A70. Go through the village of Coylton. The Water of Coyle Fishery is on the right hand side after about 1 mile.
