Bruce & Co are delighted to offer to the market Highland Star in the tourist town of Fort William. The business currently trades well, giving the new owner a real opportunity to build on a great level of trade and further develop the trading pattern going forward. It delivers an exceptional traditional Chinese menu of choice food produced from fresh ingredients, all sourced locally. At the same time, it could very easily and at minimal expense, be adapted in any direction the new owners would care to. The location would also suit a multitude of various restaurant types should new owners wish to change it from Chinese cuisine too Indian, Italian or traditional, offering an excellent choice to the new owners, however the business is currently the only Chinese in the busy tourist town. It is very popular with locals and visitors alike to the area and the Highland Star is renowned for its quality cuisine and friendly vibrant ambience along with its popular takeaway service. The restaurant has a superb reputation on which to grow from and is complimented by a very well equipped kitchen which easily caters for up to 80 diners.

The property is located on the high street where you will find a variety of shops along with railway and bus stations, as well as the West Highland College, council offices and the Belford Hospital. There is on-street parking directly in front of the property and free parking in the nearby West End car park. Fort William provides a wide range of local amenities including supermarkets, primary and secondary school and a leisure centre/swimming pool. Fort William is central to Lochaber and is celebrated as the Outdoor Capital of the UK. The surrounding area provides many opportunities to experience and enjoy a wide range of outdoor sports, including a variety of mountain, bike and water sports. We would recommend interested parties visit this business to appreciate its condition and convenient location.
