A multipurpose centre in a prime location on Skye, has come up for grabs.

Strutt and Parker is delighted to launch the Aros Centre, which is located on the southern edge of Portree, the main settlement on Skye.

The Aros Centre is a well-established business, with facilities to service the expanding tourism market and also local customers. It is recognised as a multipurpose venue, celebrating the island’s culture and heritage.

The Centre currently houses a 150-cover restaurant, a well-appointed theatre/cinema, small art gallery, retail area, café/bar (that also services the theatre/cinema) and child soft play area. In addition, there are offices and meeting/training rooms that provides good additional income. The restaurant and café bar offers panoramic views over Loch Portree.

The restaurant is open throughout the day with a large range of breakfast, lunch and dinner offerings seven days per week. The Centre attracts a high volume of local business, helping to sustain staff jobs all year round.

The business has traditionally attracted around 240,000 visitors per year.

There is an abundance of on-site car and coach parking with the property benefiting from excellent roadside prominence to the busy main road from the south. The main car park is on the same level as the access points to the building making it user friendly, and particularly suitable for those with mobility challenges. There is a daily bus service around Portree, which calls at the centre on an hourly basis.

Available as a separate lot is a 3 ½ acre potential development site, which is currently zoned for hotel and office use with an access in principal already agreed from the main trunk road. This is one of the few areas for development in and around Portree.

Senior associate director within the SaP Inverness office, Euan MacCrimmon, said: “The sale of Aros provides a fantastic opportunity for a purchaser to capitalise on the tourism industry on the Isle of Skye, which goes from strength to strength.

The current owners developed the site originally in the 1990’s and have developed it into on the Isle of Skye’s main tourist attractions attracting a large amount of visitors each year. The development opportunities on the adjacent 3 ½ acre site further provide opportunities to invest in the tourism and hospitality industries on the Island”
