The Hillshop and Bar is on the Island of Yell in the Shetland Isles. The shop is very well supported by the local community as the nearest chain retailer is a drive to the ferry, a 20 minute ferry ride and further 45 minute drive. And of course the same in reverse. Whilst the actual shop area currently takes up quite a small part of the building there is a planning application in to allow the shop area to extend through to the bar area and convert current shop into a store room and office. We are confident with a small investment to facilitate this and the introduction of addition lines such as small home and hardware products then turnover should easily increase by around 30%.

In addition we are currently in talks with the Post Office to take on a Post Office Local service and although still early stages have been advised that it is the preferred location (subject to the appropriate due diligence checks) as the local area is suffering from a loss of service. We stock almost 3000 products including locally produced bakery, meat and fish products and a small selection of products from Scoop Wholefoods which is a company that sources most of its products from small batch producers and ethical sources. We provide weekly subscription magazines and are a stockist for bottled Gas. We are licensed and sell a small selection of spirits, bottled beers and ciders.

The decision was taken to close the bar for a variety of reasons, none of which was the profitability. The bar alone for an owner operator would give a good return. Jointly with the shop, a very healthy income could be produced.

The unused bar area is currently used as a store room for the shop although there is an external store accessed through a covered walkway to the rear of the building and also a jackleg cabin with an office in one side with additional storage space on the other side. There is a car to park to the side and rear which holds approximately 25 cars. None of the bar workings have been removed yet so the bar could be reopened within a day or so with a little bit of hard work if so desired. We are happy to remain for a period to help with any training and help setting up accounts etc.

We also have other properties and businesses for sale including a seasonal combined cafe and shop. Although the sale of these businesses are not necessary to move on we are motivated sellers so willing to consider other deals someone may propose other than a sale or lease.
