Crieff is a market town in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. It lies on the A85 road between Perth and Crianlarich and also lies on the A822 between Greenloaning and Aberfeldy.
Crieff is the main town of Strathearn lying on the southern edge of the Scottish Highlands. It has been a holiday resort since Victorian times and is the second largest town in Perthshire with a population of almost 6000.
The town spills from the Knock, the wooded hill above, down to the River Earn. James Square with it's fountain marks the centre of the town. There are a number of tourist attractions such as Glenturret Distillery (Scotland's oldest) and hotels including the grand Victorian spa - the Crieff Hydro.
From a local context the property is on the northern side of West High Street between its junctions with Comrie Street and Academy Road. West High Street forms the main arterial road through Crieff and as such benefits from high levels of footfall and passing trade.
The subjects form the ground floor of a traditional end terraced two storey property of brick construction. The property benefits from a large double bayed window frontage with timber glazed entrance door.
The restaurant provides seating area incorporating a mixture of traditional table and chairs and more relaxed seating providing 45 covers. The floor is of solid wooden construction whilst the walls are plastered and painted. The front serving area provides a bar with coffee machine, refrigeration and storage unit.
The kitchen area is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, basins, extraction system and refrigeration. The floor is overlaid in a welded non slip vinyl covering.

The business has been operated by the same owner for approximately 10 years and trades as “The Lounge.” The establishment forms a popular restaurant within Crieff Town Centre.
The business is for sale due to the current owners relocation. The business is currently performing very well but we believe that there is good scope to increase turnover and profit margins.
