Mr Pilling said: “We are delighted to have helped the Cairngorm Capital team and Stevenswood complete this latest transaction in support of their strategy to grow their trade counters business nationwide and we look forward to helping further as they continue to pursue further opportunities to grow their business.”

Alex Bayliss, Investment Director at Cairngorm Capital said: “We have established a strong relationship with Simon and James and the rest of the Bond Dickinson team.”
