Dumfries is the principal shopping and administrative centre in
the Dumfries and Galloway region of southwest Scotland, and

lies approximately 75 miles south of Glasgow, 34 miles northwest
of Carlisle and is bypassed by the A75 trunk road. The town’s
retail catchment includes other nearby towns and villages,
together with the surrounding rural hinterland. The area also
draws in significant tourist trade during the spring and summer
The subject properties occupy a very prominent position on
Queensberry Street, positioned between its junctions with Three
Crowns Court and St Andrews Street. Queensberry Street forms
part of the town centre one-way system, running parallel and
situated only one street to the east of the main High Street.
The property is located directly opposite the Loreburn Street
public car park and is within close proximity of both the Burns
Square and Great King Street bus terminals. The Munches Street
taxi rank is also located within short walking distance.
Other commercial occupiers comprise a variety of local traders
including retailers, bars, restaurants, public houses and hot food
takeaways. There are however also a number of national retailers
and main clearing banks located nearby due to the subject’s close
proximity to the High Street.

unit with upper floor secondary retail / storage space and full size
ancillary basement area. There is also a smaller start-up ground
floor unit. Both units comprise part of a category B listed three

the smaller unit. Part of the upper floors above the larger unit
are also in separate ownership and are operated as a restaurant.
There is potential scope to develop the remaining vacant upper
floors into a residential dwelling(s).
