Follow the road for approximately 1 mile towards Old Portlethen village where The Neuk is clearly identifiable.


Since acquiring the business the current owners have expanded into the provision of food and letting accommodation. The Neuk is popular with locals, the business community, and holidaymakers due to its lively yet traditional atmosphere and its peaceful rural location, which is close to a wealth of local amenities in the bustling suburb of Portlethen, and within easy access of the City of Aberdeen. The lounge bar is ideal for small private functions for up to 40 guests and the business also attracts a wide variety of customers through its live showing of major sports events, regular themed promotional evenings including quiz and poker nights, darts events, malt and gin tastings, afternoon teas, and food offers on specific days. Drawings are in place for the conversion of current rooms to create owners accommodation as well as four further rooms, and these, as well as the business accounts can be made available to genuine enquirers. Further additional information on the business can be found on the website All fittings and fixtures are included in the sale.
