New owners are being sought for a 130-year old Aberdeenshire shop and post office. Bellabeg Shop & Post Office has been a vital part of Strathdon since 1894.

Occupying a large corner position within the village, the licensed business has been heavily relied upon by locals for provisions of all kinds.

The store has been owned and operated by current owners, Jamie and Denise Howse, for the last 11 years, and won the best Independent Spar Store in Scotland in 2022.

They have now placed the business on the market as they plan to relocate and take on a new adventure.

The store provides a wide range of mainstream groceries, beers, wines and spirits as well as pet foods and convenience items.

To the back of the property, there is a detached store and a sizeable garden, offering excellent development potential.

Under the current ownership, considerable expense has been invested into the refurbishment of the business and house with new double-glazed windows in the impressive six-bedroom owner’s accommodation which is included in the sale.

A wing of the house was previously used as a B&B and is an opportunity for potential new owners to generate additional income.

Liam Bain, Business Agent, at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale comments: “Bellabeg house and shop offer a great opportunity to take on the local business, providing a key service to the community while also being able to enjoy the outstanding 6-bed home and grounds.

“This could be a real lifestyle change for the right buyer to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.”

Bellabeg Shop is on the market at £599,500 for the freehold going concern.
