Substantial Retail Unit/Residential Development Opportunity

101 High Street, Montrose, Angus, Scotland, DD10 8JB, United Kingdom



 Situated at the mouth of the River Esk, Montrose has a population of circa 12,000 and is an important commercial centre. Its well-developed port acts as a support centre for the North Sea industry and is a bulk container shipping base.

Montrose is well located with Aberdeen 35 miles to the north, Dundee 30 miles to the south and Forfar 17 miles to the east. The A90 is located close-by and the town is served by a main railway station. Adjacent to Montrose Basin, an internationally important wildlife reserve, the town is also close to several well regarded golf courses and provides a good selection of services and amenities to the surrounding area.

The property is located in a prime position within the town centre, on a section of the High Street which benefits from being set back slightly from the main road and which has a number of public on-street car parking spaces in front of the building. A mix of national and local traders occupy premises in the vicinity.


The subjects comprise a category B Listed mid terraced, three storey and attic building of sandstone construction under a pitched and slated roof. There are single storey extensions to the rear with attractive former garden ground extending to the east, bounded by high stone walls.

Internally the ground floor comprises a former banking hall, meeting rooms, strong room and further office/storage space to the rear with an internal stair leading to a mezzanine floor providing a staff room and toilets. A separate entrance at street level provides direct access to the upper floors where there are private offices on the first and second floors, as well as additional toilet facilities and basic storage accommodation at attic level.

Many of the original features such as cornice work, ceiling roses and fireplaces have been retained whilst some offices have underfloor and/or perimeter trunking. Heating is via a gas fired boiler and wall mounted radiators.
