It is with great pleasure that CCL brings to market The Harbour Bar.  A well performing business comprising a traditional village pub full of character and charm situated in the charming coastal village of Gourdon, near Montrose in Aberdeenshire.  The properties overlook the picturesque harbor and present unspoiled views of the coast line and the North Sea. Being the ‘hub’ of the village, the bar has a great local following while attracting a variety of visitors from much further afield.  It benefits from year round trade and enjoys a monopoly trade being the only public bar in the village.  It generates a sustainable turnover and produces strong profitability from predominantly wet sales with a smaller margin of food and accommodation sales.
