Former Restaurant and Bar with Four Flats – Generous Site - Potential for Alternative Use


Kirkintilloch is the principal town in East Dumbartonshire and is situated just 10 miles north of Glasgow on the southern edge of the Kelvin Valley. The town has a wide range of amenities including supermarkets, high street shopping, library, museum, marina and a range of cafes and independent traders. Kirkintilloch has an interesting canal history and is known as ‘The Canal Capital of Scotland’ with the Forth and Clyde canal passing through it. Sailing, fishing and cycling are all popular within the area and the Campsie Fells rising to the north provide for striking views and walking opportunities. The town is well served by a regular bus service and train services to Glasgow and Edinburgh from nearby Lenzie Station. Centrally situated, the property is near to the A803 Glasgow Road which forms part of the town’s bypass and is located on the corner of Peel Brae which provides direct access to the historic Peel Park Conservation Area. There are two public car parks near to the property.


The main part of the property comprises a two storey and attic block of rendered brick and stone construction under a pitched slate roof incorporating dormers to the front and rear. The ground floor is a former restaurant which extends to a large open plan area with stripped timber floor and painted and plastered walls.

The space incorporates a bar area, office, storage and male, female and disabled toilets. To the rear of this main space a small flight of steps leads to a large kitchen with storage areas off. The main part of the building is interlinked with the space immediately to the west, which is the former bar area, thus allowing for flexible use of the overall available space. This area comprises a single storey unit of similar construction under a pitched profile metal clad roof.

Internally, the accommodation here comprises an open plan split level space with bar/ server area and storage. This open plan area has recently been altered to incorporate windows to the front of the building which provides for a light and airy space. Stairs to the rear of this main space provide access to a useful area of south facing garden ground which backs onto Peel Brae and was most recently used as a beer garden.

Access to the first floor level is from the rear of the building where there are two flats each extending to:

  • LIVING ROOM 4.1 x 2.9 (13’3” x 9’8”),
  • No.1 BEDROOM 4.1 x 2.8 (13’5” x 9’11”),
  • No.2 BEDROOM 2.4m x 2.2m (8’0” x 7’11”),
  • KITCHEN 2.9m x 1.4m (9’7” x 4’5”)
  • and BATHROOM.

Access is also provided to the second floor where there are two flats each extending to:

  • LIVING ROOM 3.9m x 3.8m (13’11” x 12’5”),
  • BEDROOM 3.1m x 3m (10’11” x 10’),
  • KITCHEN 4.1m x 1.7m (13’3” x 5’7”)
  • and BATHROOM.

The flats have equipped kitchens and some furniture remaining from recent rentals, they also benefit from gas central heating and double glazing. The flats are Council Tax Band B.

This is a well placed and easily accessible unit which we understand has had a variety of uses over the years and provides an opportunity for continued restaurant, café and bar use with flat rental or perhaps the splitting of the unit and/or further development of the single storey unit to provide a building in keeping with the surrounding character of the street, subject to obtaining necessary consents.
