Commercial Property

Property Description:

The subject comprises a modern 2-storey standalone office pavilion of conventional construction. The ground floor provides two self contained office units and a shared toilet and tea prep facilities. The first floor provides 5 self contained office rooms, which can be let out individually or combined to suit larger space requirements. The specification includes powder coated aluminum double glazed windows and there is perimeter trunking for IT installations. There are designated car parking spaces.

We have provided an accommodation and tenancy schedule. It is anticipated that vacant possession will be obtainable in near course and the opportunity would therefore suit owner occupiers and investors.


The property is located within the popular Beechwood Business Park on the southern outskirts of Inverness close to Beechwood UHI Campus and Raigmore Hospital. The park enjoys easy access to the main A9 trunk road and close connection to the main A96 trunk road. Neighbouring occupiers include a healthy mix of local and national companies including Fairhurst, City Fibre, Tailor Made Moves, Innes & Mackay and Saffery Champness. There is also a Premier Inn and Brewers Fayre within the business park.
