Retail and leisure

Culverwell provides a comprehensive retail and leisure property advisory service, backed by robust market intelligence and an unrivalled network of specialist contacts. We use our experience and relationships with retailers and restaurateurs to attract the best occupiers to our clients’ properties. We advise on creating successful and vibrant environments where retailers flourish and shoppers are given a new retail experience, from prime high streets, stand-alone retail warehouses and retail parks through to large scale shopping centres.

We also advise retailers and restaurateurs on the formation of detailed property strategies through to the acquisition and disposal of premises.

We always align ourselves with our clients to ensure that we add value to their businesses and help them grow.


Culverwell has always been recognised as being a major player in the Scottish investment market, particularly in retail and leisure property.

Our involvement with landlords and tenants in most towns and cities has allowed us to use our market knowledge to give up to date advice in prime and secondary locations.

Transactions range from investments created from new development projects in Princes Street to small shop investment portfolios throughout Scotland. Our specialist retail and leisure knowledge enables us to provide an unparalleled service.
