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