DUMFRIES, with a population of around 37,500, is the largest town in Dumfries and Galloway and is south west Scotland’s main shopping and administrative centre. The town lies approximately 75 miles south of Glasgow and 34 miles northwest of Carlisle, occupying a strategic location at the intersection of the A75, A76 and A701 trunk roads. The A709 provides the shortest link to the A74 (M) motorway at Lockerbie, which is some 12 miles distant. Dumfries attracts trade from nearby towns and villages, together with the surrounding rural hinterland. The area also draws in significant tourist trade during the spring and summer months. The property occupies a prominent position on the riverside area of Whitesands, which is one of the busiest thoroughfares in the town centre. The unit is also immediately adjacent to one of the town’s main free public car parks. Accordingly, the property is considered to be well placed to benefit from a good level of passing trade. Other nearby units are occupied by a range of local retailers.
