Unique opportunity to buy a popular pub in the Fife town made famous by the small screen
The popular Red Lion inn in Culross, where parts of the TV series Outlander were filmed, has been put on the market, presenting an opportunity for someone to cash in on the surge in visitor numbers, which Fife Council says have increased by as much as 12%.
The two-storey coaching inn, which overlooks the River Forth and is close to the start of the Fife Coastal Trail, is being represented by commercial property specialist Christie & Co and is available, as a freehold, for an asking price of £1.2 million.
It has three main bar areas at ground floor level with a total seating capacity of 70+, alongside a large paved area with fixed seating for a further 80 customers.
The property also comes with a spacious owners’ apartment with a private entrance, which includes a kitchen-diner, utility room, lounge, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and ancillary storage areas. It has a double garage and a large, private surfaced car park with space available for around 25 cars.
The business currently trades seven days a week, with food served from 12 noon until 9pm every day.
Stuart Drysdale, who is handling the sale on behalf of Christie & Co’s Edinburgh office, said: “This successful pub and restaurant business is up for sale due to the current owners planning to retire and spend more time sailing on their yacht in the summer and skiing in the winter.
“The sale presents an excellent opportunity to take on a busy public house with strong food sales and little immediate local competition within a charming village made famous by the silver screen.”
The Fife town has also been used for the setting of several other Box Office hits including the 2000 children’s film, The Little Vampire.
