, Dumfries and Galloway

Business location


  • Price: 49500
  • Tenure: Leasehold
  • Business type: Other retail

The business is situated in the small village of Canonbie in Dumfries and Galloway, South West Scotland. The village sits on the A7 Edinburgh (85 miles north) to Carlisle (15 miles south) routing just 2 miles from the Anglo-Scottish border. The nearby towns of Langholm and Gretna are both reachable within a 15 minute drive. 

The geography of Canonbie makes it an ideal location for many outdoor pursuits, especially angling where the River Esk on which it sits is renowned for quality salmon and trout fishing. 

Although small in size, the shop manages to offer a wide range of products such as chilled, frozen, alcohol, groceries, lotto as well as the well used Post Office service. The PO income is boosted by the use of the sorting office and a ‘remote branch’ payment which takes the PO income up to around £25,000 per annum. 

It has been reluctantly placed on the market by the owner to allow him to retire and would suit a hands-on operator looking to live and work in a beautiful part of the country. 

LEASEHOLD PRICE: £49,500 plus SAV,  £7,200 rent per annum.
