Business Description
The subjects comprise a large industrial shed, constructed with a metal frame and corrugated metal walls and roof. The property has accommodation over two principal floors. There is roller door access to the first floor at the front of the property for deliveries. There is also a metal stair at the rear of the subjects for access to the Offices and Management Suite.

The business is that of a family run Smokehouse focusing on fish. The business is run under the direct supervision of the Directors of the business. The Smokehouse produces fresh trout, salmon, mackerel, haddock, lobsters, crabs and kippers and smokes them using traditional family recipe to produce a premium product.

The business was established 40 years ago by Mr Pate when he owned the Trout Farm, and although they are no longer Fish Farmers, they have strong links with the local Fisheries and Fishermen.

The business has a strong reputation and an excellent client base, including the Balmoral Hotel, GlenApp Castle, the Signature Pub Group, Soderberg, Borthwick Castle, the Fife Arms Hotel, the Belfry and the Chester Hotel amongst others. Other wholesale clients include Farm Shops, Garden Centres and the Glasgow Conference Centre. The owners acknowledge that they could push distribution to supermarkets as this is not yet a main source of sales.
