Former Bank Premises with Potential for Alternative Use


Lybster is a small village approximately 13 miles south of Wick on the north east coast. Originally an important port for the herring fishing industry Lybster is a quieter village now, but the attractive stone buildings and wide main street remain. It provides an excellent base for enjoying all that Caithness has to offer. The village has a range of local amenities with wider facilities available in Wick. Inverness is approximately 90 miles south.


Travelling north on the A99 to Wick turn right into the village at the Portland Arms Hotel. The property is approx. 500m down this road on your left, opposite the Lybster Community Centre.


The property comprises part of the ground floor of a traditional stone built property with a pitched slated roof above. Windows are traditional single glazed sash & casement style. Internally the property has a suspended timber floor and retains some original cornicing and picture rail features. Daikin air conditioning units serve the office areas and lights are predominantly fluorescent strip units. Formerly used a bank branch the internal accommodation is accessed through a timber front door leading to a vestibule with doors to an open plan area to the left and an office to the right. The open plan area has a small toilet cubicle, a built in safe and also a corridor leading to a large cupboard, staff/kitchen area and the separate office. The property has private garden ground to the front and side which is mainly laid to grass with some areas of shrubs.

Well placed within the town centre with plentiful on street parking, the property could continue in commercial use or would lend itself to conversion to residential use subject to obtaining all necessary consents.
