Purchaser sought for 700 acre Port of Adersier development site
Purchasers are being sought to take on a 700 acre site with mixed use development potential at the Port of Ardersier, Whiteness, near Nairn on behalf of joint administrators Blair Nimmo and Tony Friar of KPMG.

Fronting a kilometre long deep water harbour the former port includes 340 acres of developable land with planning in principle for 2,000 houses, a hotel, 500 berth marina and retail and leisure facilities as well as a separate permission for a new port or port services for energy related businesses.

Originally built to construct oil rigs for the North Sea oil and gas industry in the 1970’s the port has lain disused since closing in 2001 although the land has already been cleared and remediated.

Jason Hogg, head of development land, at JLL said: “The Port of Ardersier offers a fantastic opportunity to purchase a large scale, remediated strategic site with a live planning consent for a mixed use development. Given the growth of renewable energy in the North of Scotland and the potential for an accelerated decommissioning of the oil and gas infrastructure in the North Sea, the site offers excellent medium to long-term planning potential for a variety of uses.

“Mixed development land opportunities of this scale are very few and far between in Scotland, particularly when set against one of the most beautiful backdrops in the UK.”
