The village of St John’s Town of Dalry is located within the Dumfries & Galloway Council area, 35 miles south of Ayr and 16 miles north of Castle Douglas.

The 2,960 sq ft property occupies a prominent roadside position at the northern end of the village and is located on the western side of Ayr Road (A713), the main traffic thoroughfare.

The A713 is a popular scenic route through the Southern Uplands and Galloway Forrest and makes up part of the Galloway Tourist Route from Gretna to Ayr.

St Johns Town of Dalry is also known for being a waypoint on the 212-mile Southern Upland Way walking trail.

The forecourt, which lies at the northern end of the site with two vehicle entrance and exit junctions onto Ayr Road, includes such facilities as customer parking, jet wash and air/screen-wash machine. There are six pumps with a 24-hour pay at the pump system.

The main property comprises a detached single storey industrial building, designed as a vehicle repair and MOT workshop with a working MOT bay. Attached to the workshop is a sales kiosk which includes a small convenience store, snack bar and managers office.

Fraser Carson, surveyor in Shepherd’s Dumfries office, said: “This opportunity provides prospective purchasers the ability to benefit from a mix of local resident, passing tourist and commercial trade enjoyed by an established business, operated by the same family since 1959.

“Profits from approximate annual fuel sales of one million litres are boosted by the convenience store and snack bar, which have proven to be a good source of additional income, and whilst the workshop is suited to continued automotive use it also provides scope for growth of the filling station business through refurbishment or redevelopment.

“Whilst only a sale of the whole will be considered, the filling station and workshop/MOT station could potentially be leased separately.”

Offers over £300,000 are invited. Interested parties should contact the sole selling or leasing agent on 01387 264333.
