Super owners house to accompany the business. Luxurious 4 bedroomed owners house over 3 levels. Located only 30 minutes from Edinburgh city centre and 20 minutes from Edinburgh Airport.

The Ship Inn is a fully detached stone built property lying under a pitched and slated roof with sizeable extensions at the rear. Public house and restaurant accommodation is on the ground floor whilst the owners’ house is located on ground, first and second floors.

The business has been in our clients’ hands for the last 14 years during which time our clients have managed to build up an exceptional trading business. In most cases, year on year, our clients have managed to increase turnover to todays impressive level.

The business trades as a high quality village pub offering excellent home cooked meals and traditional pub fayre to a large loyal customer base as well as those transient customers who come to the village, whether they be daytrippers or holidaymakers. This area of Fife has also received a boost in terms of tourist numbers due to the filming of the Outlander TV series, an American based historic drama, filmed in nearby Culross.

The Ship Inn is likely to appeal to those who are interested in food or who have a background and experience in catering.

Accommodation Details:
One of the most attractive aspects of this sale is the sizeable private owners’ accommodation which accompanies the business. It is highly unusual to find this style and quality of accommodation with a business and would certainly suit a family. The owners accommodation is accessed separately at the side of the business leading into an entrance porch accessing the main owners’ house. The owners accommodation is on ground, first and second floors with a half landing area between the ground and first floors.

Location Details:
The highly attractive and sought after village of Limekilns is situated on the northern shores of the Forth approximately 2.5 miles south of Dunfermline town centre.

The village enjoys a tranquil setting overlooking the Forth towards Bo’ness and eastwardly towards the three bridges over the Forth. Limekilns is situated just off the A985 which is the main A road linking Dunfermline with the Kincardine Bridge. The village is also easily accessible for the main motorway network and access to the M90 links the village to Edinburgh city centre in under 30 minutes and Edinburgh Airport in 20 minutes.

The village itself is very historic with settlement recorded as early as the 14th century. Indeed, Limekilns was name checked on Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Kidnapped” where David Balfour & Alan Breck were carried across the Forth in a rowing boat.

The village has a population of circa 1,500 with a well regarded primary school as well as local shops and services. The Ship Inn occupies a prominent position at the west end of the village overlooking the Forth and in an excellent position to capture passing trade, local trade as well as the abundance of tourist trade who visit the village.
