Town Centre Retail Premises with Offices above with Development Potential, Subject to Obtaining Planning Consent – 1,945 sq.ft.


Dunfermline has a resident population of just over 50,000 and is the largest settlement in the Kingdom of Fife. It has a reported catchment area of 150,000 and numbers are swollen by tourists in the summer months. Dunfermline was once the capital of Scotland and historic records date back to the 11th century.

Dunfermline Abbey is the burial place for many Kings and Queens including Robert the Bruce. The town is now better known for its service industry, with firms like Nationwide, Sky and Amazon employing large numbers in the area.

Located 4 miles north of the shores of the Firth of Forth and the new Queensferry Crossing, Dunfermline is well connected to a network of roads (M90) and rail to Edinburgh (20 miles away) Stirling (28) and Perth (30).

The premises are on the south side of James Street, which runs parallel and to the north of East Port / High Street. Neighbouring property is mainly in commercial use and include the offices at East Port House and The Kingsgate Shopping Centre, which is anchored by M&S and Debenhams. The town’s bus station is also a short walk away.


This is a detached former tenement (adjoining property to the East has been demolished and there is a single story building attached to the covered pend on the West at ground floor only) with a sandstone frontage and rendered gables under a pitched and slated roof. The accommodation has been arranged into retail on ground floor and offices on the two upper floors.

The retail accommodation consists of a double frontage window to James Street, affording good natural light, open plan sales area with a laminate wood floor, suspended ceiling incorporating strip light panels and structural pillars. There is a small back office/ storage room within the unit and a WC on the back stair. The upper floors both provide a large, three windowed room to the north and a series of smaller rooms, WC and tea prep area to the south. The rooms all have good head-height, are either carpeted or laminate floored and have painted plaster walls. The building is in a reasonable condition although some renovation/repairs will be required.

Access to the upper floors can be separate to the ground floor retail space, via a pend immediately to the west of the property, which provides development potential to create flats on first and second floor, subject to all the necessary consents.
