Gargunnock is a picturesque village in Central Scotland located 7 miles west of Stirling just off the A811 routing which carries on to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. Scotland’s capital city Edinburgh is reachable within a 1 hour drive to the south-east whilst Glasgow can be reached in 45 minutes to the south-west. The location of Gargunnock is ideal for those also looking to travel north to the Scottish Highlands or west to the islands.

The village attracts visitors and tourists to the area in addition to the local inhabitants (just under one thousand) for the lovely scenery and other outdoor pursuits, the popular Blair Drummond Safari Park is also nearby. Other attractions which bring visitors to the area include Doune Castle, local distillery, Treehouses accommodation along with the various campsites.

The property is currently in a shell condition and is undergoing a complete refurbishment including new roof, flooring, internal fit out along with exterior work.

The re-opening of Gargunnock Village Store offers the chance to own and operate a business in an affluent village located in a beautiful part of Central Scotland.

The shop premises are currently undergoing a total refurbishment under the caring eye of Gargunnock Community Shop Ltd who will present the store in turnkey condition for a new operator. The shop will be laid out in traditional convenience store style. It is thought that the successful tenant will have some input in this. Space to the rear of the property could be developed to accommodate a limited number of tables and chairs for coffee and potentially some food-to go.

There is potential to offer assistance with further equipment and fixtures and fittings such as refrigeration, freezers and coffee machines subject to committee approval.

Recent reports and studies have pointed towards a significant demand for the shop to re-open having sadly close due to a fire 3 years ago. This has resulted in approximately a 14 mile round trip for shopping necessities for locals. The local residents have always fully supported the store and what is now required is an operator who can work in producing an offering to include local suppliers along with a wide and varied range of what an ‘only store in the village’ needs to provide.
