Property Information

65 miles north of Edinburgh
65 miles south of Aberdeen
Dundee Railway Station (Mainline and Scotrail)
Dundee Airport, Edinburgh Airport

Dundee is the fourth largest city in Scotland. With a population in excess of 148,000, Dundee is known for its growing technology and life science sectors in connection with the city's two universities - University of Dundee and Abertay University. The waterfront area of the city is nearing completion with the V&A museum now well established as a tourist attraction. Located only 12 miles north of St Andrews and 20 miles east of Perth, Dundee benefits from good links to various famous golf courses in Scotland. The property is situated in the prime retail pitch on the eastern side of Murraygate at the north end of the pedestrianised section of the street, close to the Wellgate Shopping Centre. Murraygate links both the Wellgate and Overgate Shopping Centres. Neighbouring occupiers include Tesco Metro, Marks and Spencer, Specsavers, WH Smith and Bank of Scotland.




Built in 1990, the property comprises purpose built modern retail units planned over three floors. There is a shared service yard to the rear accessed via St Andrew Street. Whilst the upper levels of the property are currently demised to Holland & Barrett and HMV, there is potential in the longer term to convert this space for alternative uses such as residential, subject to planning.


VAT is applicable to this lot.
