Crook Inn resi site allmedia

SHEPHERD Chartered Surveyors is offering a residential development site with planning permission adjacent to the historic Crook Inn in Tweedsmuir, Biggar for sale.

Comprising part of The Crook Inn’s former grounds, with views along the Upper Tweed Valley, the 1.52 acre site is situated off the A701, 1.5 miles to the north of Tweedsmuir, a small hamlet 16 miles north of Moffat within commuting distance to Edinburgh.

Planning permission has been granted for the erection of six private detached and semi-detached houses.

Fraser Carson, surveyor at Shepherd’s Dumfries office, said: “The site lies beside The Crook Inn, one of the oldest inns in Scotland, dating back to the 17th century which closed six years ago.

“The inn, and part of the ground that was associated with it, has since been sold to the Tweedsmuir Community Company, which is looking to raise and invest £1m into refurbishing the property.

“The relatively level site currently comprises a traditional stone outbuilding and the former manager’s house, which sits directly behind The Crook Inn.

“Given its proximity to the community-owned Crook Inn and the fact that Tweedsmuir offers an excellent location for commuting, being located on the A701 Dumfries to Edinburgh Road, this opportunity is likely to appeal to a number of residential developers.”

Purchase offers are now invited for the site with vacant possession. Interested parties should contact the selling agent on 01387 264333.
