The Earl of Aberdeen Arms in New Deer, Aberdeenshire, a popular public house with function suite and five bedroom owner’s accommodation on the above floors, has been brought to market by DM Hall, one of Scotland’s largest independent firms of chartered surveyors.

The premises, which are for sale at offers over £200,000 due to the planned retirement of the vendors, offers great potential to increase turnover through longer opening hours of business and the introduction of letting rooms and, or, food sales.

New Deer village is around 12 miles east of Turriff, 16 miles west of Peterhead and 30 miles north of Aberdeen. The Earl of Aberdeen Arms occupies a prominent roadside location at the junction of local thoroughfares Auchcreddie Road East and The Brae.

Kevin Jackson, a senior associate at DM Hall who is conducting the marketing process, said: “This is an established family business which was has been under its current ownership for the last ten years and enjoys a loyal local following.

“Income is primarily derived from wet sales with the annual barrelage in the region of 312 and there is scope to include food sales and letting rooms to increase turnover.

“This represents an outstanding opportunity for anyone considering a lifestyle change and relocation to a beautiful part of rural Aberdeenshire”, he said.
