Buying a business in Scotland

Population density in Scotland is low compared to the rest of the UK, but this works in its favour in the tourism industry. Scottish B&Bs, guest houses and other leisure businesses attract customers who travel from across the globe to experience some of the UK’s finest unspoiled scenery. The brewing industry has a global reputation for quality, and whisky tourism generates a lot of trade for Scottish pubs and hotels.

Well-targeted B2B service businesses in Scotland can earn significant sums if they match the industry profile of the local area. Edinburgh is a financial services hotspot and many manufacturing businesses are headquartered further west. Fishing and agriculture is popular in the north of Scotland, and businesses related to the oil, gas and energy sectors can be found scattered across the country. If you’re looking at buying a services business, examine the local industry and see how well-suited this business is to profit from big industry in the area.

There are hundreds of businesses for sale in Scotland, to suit every budget and ambition. Why not enquire to some of the businesses for sale above to learn more?
