About this property

  • The Hub

    Exciting business opportunity to develop and expand the existing hub/café located near Tomintoul at the Glenlivet Mountain Bike track in the heart of The Cairngorms National Park, in partnership with Crown Estate Scotland on their award winning Glenlivet Estate.

    Crown Estate Scotland are looking for a business partner to run the Hub and deliver a welcoming and friendly environment providing refreshments and shelter for the riders and public visiting the mountain bike centre.

    Subjects of Let

    Timber construction extending to 96.88m², the building has a 37.66m² net indoor floor space which is currently used as cafe seating area providing up to 20 covers. There is additional outdoor seating in the form of picnic tables at the front of the cafe which is very well used (24 covers). The subjects are to be let on a FRI lease.

    Within the building there is a large fitted kitchen, with the layout and units designed to complement a busy kitchen environment, allowing ample space to produce fresh food and refreshments. The building also houses; three toilets (including one accessible), storage cupboards with a wood burning stove situated in the seating area.

    The site offers c. 30 parking spaces with room for camper vans and mini buses.

    Currently the building is used as a meeting point for the mountain bike riders and somewhere for non-participants to relax. The business opportunity available is for the operation of a catering facility and could also include a complimentary bike business e.g. bike hire, retail, rider tuition etc. Other innovative ideas for business, retail or service provision are welcomed in relation to both the hub and surrounding woodland. The business opportunity could be considered as separate lots, although a single operator would be be preferable.

    We are seeking experienced and energetic partner(s) and request that a thorough business plan is submitted as part of any tender.
