A further healthy income is generated with commission from the sales of beautiful artwork and crafts, all of which are created by over 50 local artists and artisans who use the gallery to showcase their work to the many regulars and tourists who flock to the popular and welcoming establishment. Included in the sale will be all the fixtures and fittings with purchase of the stock being negotiable. This opportunity offers the chance for a rewarding new venture and change of lifestyle for those looking to move to this most beautiful part of the world to take on a ready-made business.
The picturesque village of Blairmore is set on the shores of Loch Long and boasts a few small independent shops and a recently restored pier at which the world famous paddle steamer ‘PS Waverley’ berths. The area is perfect for hill walking, is surrounded by natural beauty and is well served with a marina, sailing, golf and bowling clubs, a post office / mini market, hotels, pub, medical centre, churches and a fantastic, award winning, primary school. A regular bus service ensures that the neighbouring villages of Strone, Kilmun and Ardentinny, as well as Dunoon, are easily accessible. In addition, there are two ferries to Gourock with rail and coach links meaning that Glasgow city centre is little more than an hour away, with Glasgow Airport, Braehead Shopping Centre and Greenock even closer.
Blairmore Gallery and Coffee Shop is located directly across from Blairmore Pier.
