Well presented, busy coffee shop. Popular with locals and visitors. Freehold property in heart of village of Tighnabruaich. Benefits from Class 3 and Class 10 consents. Ideal for hands on operator. Scope to develop and expand on current offering.
Five West enjoys a prominent and unique trading location on the unspoilt Argyllshire coast in the historic village of Tighnabruaich.
This, and the neighbouring village of Kames, are popular tourist and holiday villages on Argyll’s “Secret Coast”, located on the Western arm of the Kyles of Bute. The village enjoys an element of seclusion yet offers close communication links with central Scotland.
Tighnabruaich can either be accessed via a regular ferry service from Gourock (just outside Greenock) arriving at Dunoon before heading north on the B836 or a more scenic route by Loch Lomond and the Rest & Be Thankful via the A83 and A886. The village is located overlooking the stunning Kyles of Bute with Five West positioned in a central position on the main street backing on to the shorefront.
Our clients purchased the property around 10 years ago when in a near derelict condition and after a comprehensive programme of refurbishment they have created a warm, welcoming and quirky coffee shop which opened in 2020 and has already proved to be a successful and profitable business.
Five West is set up in such a way that during the day it trades as coffee shop and café offering sit in and takeaway refreshments along with a menu that includes homemade soups, meat and cheese platters, filled rolls and a wonderful selection of cakes, pastries and biscuits. During the evenings and other times during the day at quieter times of the year, the larger space can be used independently of the café area for local clubs, ‘pop-ups’, private parties, workshops or as a meeting area, with catering provided by the café. Further information can be found at www.five-west.com
The business is operated by six part time staff along with primarily one of the owners. Tighnabruaich and this part of Argyll is without doubt one of the most beautiful and popular areas of Scotland both for people looking to relocate and for visitors, the business is located in an area where it benefits from plentiful passing trade especially during the busier summer months.
Our clients have placed Five West on the market to concentrate on other business interests but we would highlight the significant scope to develop and expand on what they and their team have created here in a very short period of time. Opportunities include meeting the demand for small scale events and workshops, and building on the good existing relationships in place with local suppliers of high quality produce. There is scope to develop this further including the retail side to showcase other local produce and products.
Ideally suited for a hands on operator looking to live and work in a most desirable part of the country.
