Avison Young acted for the landlord, Carrylift UK. Avison Young’s Pete Harding commented, “There was significant interest in this high-quality unit which benefits from great access to the motorway network and a secure, dedicated yard area. So to successfully reach an agreement on the site for such an iconic Scottish brand is an outstanding result for our client.”
