Prom­i­nent fam­ily’s for­mer man­sion is among those up for sale

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - NEWS -

Ar­buth­not House and Glenugie Busi­ness Cen­tre are fi­nally ready for a new lease of life.

And both the Peter­head build­ings in the process of be­ing sold by Aberdeen­shire Coun­cil have in­ter­est­ing pasts.

The busi­ness cen­tre and the Wind­mill Street prop­erty next door was pre­vi­ously used as a com­mer­cial hub and school.

It was later con­verted to of­fices, with the for­mer school space used by the so­cial work de­part­ment. As stated in the ad­ver­tise­ment for the prop­erty, po­ten­tial uses in­clude con­ver­sion into homes, a res­tau­rant, nurs­ery or re­li­gious use.

Ar­buth­not House, on the other hand, was a clas­si­cal gran­ite man­sion built by the prom­i­nent Ar­buth­not fam­ily in 1805.

Since then, the build­ing has been through sev­eral changes and had an ex­ten­sion. Aberdeen­shire Coun­cil moved out of the build­ing in 2014.

The win­dows have since been boarded up fol­low­ing sev­eral break-ins and cases of van­dal­ism.
