Tenants on Aviemore’s main street are adjusting to the news that after decades their properties have a new landlord.
Although no public announcements have been made, the locally-based Upland Developments, run by David Cameron, has sold its long-held interest in the village’s shopping and business centres on Grampian Road.
Tenants have been notified that the new owners are Sheet Anchor Investments 2 Ltd., based in the West Midlands of England.
It is not known at this stage precisely how many properties are involved in the sale.
It is understood that the Aviemore and Myrtlefield shopping centres and the properties in the block including Ben Macdui's restaurants by the railway station are all part of the deal but this has not been officially confirmed.
Upland Developments did not respond to the Strathy’s request for an interview.
A source said: "Representatives of the new owners have been in and around the shops in recent weeks.
The Strathy contacted the new owner's managing agents, London and Cambridge Properties based on the Pensnett Estate at Kingswingford near Dudley.
LCP is a leading privately owned investment and property management company with more than 410 sites, 3500 tenants and 15,000,000 sq ft of property.
A spokesperson for the company said it was preparing a press statement on the deal, but the Strathy had not received it to date.
