Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market an opportunity to acquire

One of Scotland’s truly outstanding traditional kilt making businesses.

Kilts by Lindsay has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for over 10 years & has only now been introduced to the market as it’s our clients desire to take well-earned retirement.

The business has built up an enviable reputation not just locally but within the industry in general & boasts exports across the globe, a true testament to the calibre of business on offer.

The business offers hand crafted traditional Kilts along with offering fully tailored outfits including kilt jackets, the Argyll style, Prince Charles style, pipe band uniforms along with all accessories associated with Scotland’s national outfits.

All the materials are sourced within the UK to ensure a premium quality. The business also offers shirts, shoes, socks, sporrans, belts to finish off the bespoke outfits.

Our client has been running the business to suit his life style, but there is massive potential to increase turnover, with a robust national marketing campaign, investing in the current website  to promote & highlight the business , along with attending wedding fairs & trade fairs to also help increase orders.

Very rarely do businesses of this calibre come to the open market therefore making it an ideal bolt on to an existing operator within the industry

Early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment
