The subjects are prominently situated in one of the prime sections of Byres Road between Dowanside Road and Ruthven Street in close proximity to Hillhead Underground Station in the West End of the City.

Byres Road benefits from high pedestrianised footfall due to its location close to Glasgow University Campus. The surrounding area forms part of one of the most popular and affluent residential areas in Glasgow with a high proportion of young professionals and students.

Nearby traders include Oliver Bonas, Pret a Manger, Ryman, Bank of Scotland, Pizza Express and many other national and local traders. The above location and traders plans show the approximate location of the subjects and some of the surrounding occupiers.


The subjects comprise a double fronted shop contained on the ground floor of a four storey and basement stone built and slated tenement property.

The ground floor provides a main counter/servery area with fixed and moveable tables and chairs with a disabled toilet to the rear.

The basement floor is accessed via a full staircase at the rear of the shop and provides an attractive additional seating area, male and female toilets and a storage area.


The subjects are shown in the current Valuation Roll with a rating assessment of £45,250.
