Office/Redevelopment Opportunity – Two Office Buildings on 1.65 Acre Site


Wick is situated close to the north east tip of mainland Scotland approximately 100 miles north of Inverness and 15 miles south of Duncansbay Head. The town thrived during the haydays of the Herring Industry and has remained centred around it’s harbour. The Beatrice Off Shore windfarm with up to 277 turbines is currently under construction with Wick chosen as the operations and maintenance base. It is expected to be commissioned and start producing this year with a 25-year life expectancy. The property is situated to the north of the town centre in an area of mixed uses including office and residential.


On entering Wick from the south on the A99 go through the town centre and after approx. 200m from the traffic lights turn right into Louisburgh Street. Follow this east until you reach Girnigoe Street and then turn left and the property is on your left.


The property comprises a site of 1.65 acres upon which stand two separate office buildings of predominantly concrete construction under a mix of flat and shallow pitched roofs. There is car parking and an area of undeveloped ground. The site would lend itself to redevelopment as a hotel or for residential development. The site extends beyond the concrete post and chain link fence on the north side of the site and includes an L shaped section of the yard area in use by the adjoining proprietor and including the gate to the access lane to Henrietta Terrace. The title also refers to a servitude right of access over this lane.
