Description Bruce and Co are delighted to introduce to the market a Cateran Cafe in Blairgowrie. Since taking over the business 3 years ago the current owners have grown and changed the style of the business but have reluctantly placed the business on to the market as they now wish to retire. This Café is perfectly situated in the heart of Blairgowrie and attracts trade from passers-by, shoppers, local businesses and residents. The business is presented to an extremely high standard and needs no further work before new owners could commence trading as the current owners have laid down the foundations for that.
Situation Blairgowrie has always been one of a pair with Rattray, on the opposite side of the River Ericht. In the early 1700s, Blairgowrie became the starting point for the military road north to Braemar, finished in 1725. This took a route up the west side of the River Ericht from Blairgowrie. At about the same time Blairgowrie was connected to Rattray by a bridge. Blairgowrie started to take advantage of its location en route to the Glenshee Ski Centre. Hotels and ski shops were not slow to provide for this new market. Other leisure developments included the Blairgowrie Golf Club to the south of the town. This had offered members an 18 hole course since 1889. Today, it has two 18 hole championship courses plus a 9 hole course.
Building Internal Cateran Cafe, is located on the main road through the heart of the town. The property occupies the ground floor of terraced premises.
