This is a great opportunity to purchase the Blackstairs fishmongers shop in Wick. This property is available with vacant possession and is located in the Pulteney town area of Wick, close to the harbour, and the Blackstairs. Until recently, these spacious premises successfully traded and enjoyed supplying many of the local hotels and businesses with locally sourced produce.
Due to the owner wishing to pursue other business interests, and family commitments, he has reluctantly put this well established property on to the market. The building itself lends a hand to multiple uses, and due to its close proximity to the harbour, would make an excellent retail outlet, or could be turned into a family home, subject to the necessary planning consents.
The shop has a good window frontage, with the main front shop being of good proportions, due to the local supermarkets no longer having a fish counter, this is an excellent opportunity for a driven individual. There is an office, a food preparation room, kitchen, an office, ladies and gents toilets, a hallway as well as large freezer room. The property has been well maintained by the current proprietor and has an enclosed yard, with a large concrete shed with a smoke house. There is off road parking and on street parking, making this a very attractive retail outlet.
Located within a few minutes walk to the harbour, the property is close to the Youth Club, a cafe, a chip shop and a hotel. Nearby is the local hospital, a pharmacy with further facilities being found in the town centre which is a short drive away. Wick is the second largest town in the county of Caithness and has good coach and rail links both North and South as well as the John o'Groats Airport.
