Commercial property and relaxation are never easy bedfellows, thanks to taxes, red tape and maintenance demand.
But property firm CKD Galbraith is currently marketing “tranquility” in the form of an Aberdeenshire trout fishery.
Loch Insch Fishery is on the market at offers over £750,000 and according to CKD Galbraith, it offers “a piece of paradise”.
The fishery extends to around 31 acres, including 12 acres of loch as well as bait and rearing ponds, a large fishing lodge, two small huts and a caravan site with five pitches.
Established in 1994, the business has grown over the years to meet the high level of demand from local anglers and visitors from further afield.
It can now comfortably accommodate up to 100 anglers at any one time.
The lodge comprises a large tackle shop, kitchen, storage rooms, an office and other accommodation, which CKD Galbraith suggests may easily covert into a coffee shop.
Jordan Mackay, who is handling the sale, said: “This is an extremely exciting property which would provide new owners with the rare opportunity to live the dream lifestyle, escape the rat race and move to one of Scotland’s most stunning rural areas.
“The opportunity to live and work surrounded by greenery, woodland and lochs is ideal and the already well-established fishery business has the potential to be expanded upon and developed further.”
