The affluent village of Comrie is situated within the Strathearn district of Perth and Kinross region, some 7 miles from Crieff on the road between Crieff and Lochearnhead. Surrounded by spectacular southern highland scenery, the village itself has won many awards including Britain in Bloom... The village sits on the confluence of three rivers which adds further to the picturesque setting. Comrie is very popular with tourists with its abundance of natural amenities nearby including sailing on Loch Earn, fishing, hillwalking, pony trekking etc. The village has its own nine hole picturesque golf course. For residents there is a good selection of mainly privately owned shops, numerous clubs and societies as well as a primary school.

On the edge of the village, there are 3 caravan sites which are extremely popular with holidaymakers and visitors all year round. The village enjoys a unique charm but is only located less than 30 minutes from Perth and Stirling and just over an hour’s drive to both Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Cafe Comrie is a very neatly presented business that has been skilfully run and well looked after by our clients for the last 15 years. Our clients wish to retire and have run the business as a family concern with the assistance of part time staff. A huge opportunity now exists for new owners to take on the business and push the trade and opening hours further if required. The business trades very profitably on 5 day a week opening but the extension of the opening hours especially in the summer evening as well as the weekend represents a tangible opportunity for business growth.

In Spring 2022 our clients developed a well presented ice cream parlour in the neighbouring shop premises. The ice cream parlour trades on a takeaway basis only, although there is some seating provided. The premises is equipped with an ice cream display fridge, hotdog roller, coffee machine as well as a milk shake maker. The shop is connected to the main café at the rear and had been rented out by our clients to a third party for a number of years.

Conversely, the shop premises could also revert to an investment for new owners, our client had previously rented the premises for £350pcm.

The business is offered for sale on a freehold basis.
