Former Fishers Laundry site goes on sale

Site in Aberfeldy suited to residential development


GLASGOW, 27 July 2016A potential residential development site in the Highland Perthshire town of Aberfeldy has gone on the market.

The 1.99 acre site on Home Street is the former Fishers Laundry, which ceased operations in the area earlier this year. It is being brought to market by JLL on behalf of Fishers Services.

The site includes the former laundry buildings – consisting of the main factory, offices, garment department and warehouse – and Parkfield House, a two storey detached home which was used as office accommodation.

Nina Stobie, director, JLL, said: "Aberfeldy is a town well known across Scotland for its stunning scenery. The central location within the town centre makes it an ideal opportunity for residential development, although the site would also be suited to mixed use development (subject to obtaining necessary planning consents).

"Scenery aside, Aberfeldy also offers a wide selection of shopping, leisure, medical and community facilities while the nearby Breadalbane Academy provides nursery, primary and secondary education."

Within the Breadalbane Community Campus is the Aberfeldy Recreation Centre and Public Library. The town is also home to Birks Cinema, which underwent extensive refurbishment and reopened in 2013 as a cinema, conference and events venue.

On the south side of the River Tay, Aberfeldy also offers a range of outdoor pursuits, including walking, climbing, golf, riding, bowling and watersports.

Pitlochry, situated 13 miles to the south west, is home to the well-known Festival Theatre and also hosts the award-winning Enchanted Forest event, which attracted over 62,000 visitors last year.

Aberfeldy is just 10 miles from the A9 trunk road connecting Inverness with central Scotland, while Pitlochry's railway station is served by the Caledonian Sleeper service which runs between Inverness and London.
