In addition to a church in Aberfeldy, the properties comprised three vacant development sites, a car park, a development of houses and four retail units, all in Bo’ness.

Sandy Falconer, surveyor at Shepherd, said: “We are delighted to have been able to assist the administrator by securing the sale of this property portfolio to a range of buyers within a limited timeframe.”

Eileen Blackburn, Partner and Head of Business Recovery and Insolvency at French Duncan, said: “BMR had been involved in building renovation and property development activity but, due to a recent downturn in the market, had encountered cash flow difficulties, leading to our appointment as administrators.

“We have worked closely in partnership with Shepherd, our agents on this case, to achieve the best possible result for creditors in a challenging market.”
