The property is situated on the south side of Montague Street close to its junction with Tower Street within Rothesay’s town centre.

The thriving island is a prime tourist destination renowned for outstanding landscapes, beautiful views and diverse activities. Bute benefits from high occupancy levels and visitors throughout the season.

An outstandingly beautiful and historic island, Bute is situated at the heart of the Firth of Clyde, off Scotland's stunning west coast. The island possesses areas of great scenic beauty and has been a popular holiday destination since Victorian times. Due to its proximity to the Gulf Stream, the island enjoys a particularly mild climate and it has become known as the "Madeira of Scotland". Rothesay is the main town on the island and has a population of approximately 5000 with an extensive range of amenities including primary and secondary schooling, shopping, a hospital, swimming pool, sports centre and three golf courses.

Regular ferries (Caledonian MacBrayne) operate from Rothesay to Wemyss Bay (35 mins) with Glasgow city centre and the international airport generally reached in about an hour from the ferry terminal. Wemyss Bay has a direct train link to the city centre. A second ferry from Rhubodach, in the north of the island, to Colintraive, allows easy access to Argyll and the West Highlands.
The Isle of Bute also offers wonderful hill and coastal walks, golfing, sea fishing and trout fishing.

Whilst it is a good idea to visit a trading business that is being marketed for sale as a customer before making a formal viewing, it is vitally important that such visits are carried out confidentially and that no approach is made to the staff, operators or customers of the business.
Many investments are being marketed confidentially and the staff and locals may not know that the property is on the market, therefore a casual approach can adversely affect the business.

Anti-Money Laundering

In order to comply with anti-money laundering legislation, the successful purchaser / tenant will be required to provide certain identification documents. The required documents will be confirmed to and requested at the relevant time.
