The Business Drumnadrochit Post Office, Village Store, Tearoom and Garden Tearoom has been owned and operated by our clients since May 2008 when they purchased a humble Post Office and retail shop. During the time in their possession they have transformed the business to its current set up which continues to offer Post Office services but now with much more. The first addition was the tearoom which was set up in what was formerly part of the house, a very popular seating area in a beautifully presented traditional tearoom setting offering breakfasts, lunches and snacks throughout the day which can be accompanied with a wide range of coffees, teas, cakes and other sweet delights. There is also a take away option with a wide and varied menu. Our clients also added an outside ice cream shed with dedicated seating which offers Capaldis Ice Cream, alcoholic beverages, coffee, confectionery and crisps, all overlooking the village green.
The village store is licenced and has a range of groceries, stationery items, and also some gifts for tourists. Currently the Post Office operates from a counter at the rear of the property. The new owner would apply directly to POL to continue running the office, which is the only one in a ten-mile radius. For further information on this please contact the selling agent or consult the Post Office website at https://runapostoffice.co.uk/ what-were-looking-for. The new owners have a wealth of opportunities to take the business in their own direction.
This business and property is a genuine lifestyle opportunity to live and work in, without doubt, one of the most attractive villages in the UK. The proximity to Loch Ness and the surrounding mountains and countryside with breathtaking scenery together with a well-established and profitable business ensures that this is an ideal opportunity to escape city life and take on both a business that has had continued investment over the years and a home that is stunning throughout.
