A north-east restaurant owner hopes the end of work on the Aberdeen city bypass will help the business’ next proprietor.
Sandy Law, who has run and owned the Lairhillock Inn in Netherley, Aberdeenshire, for more than 11 years with his family has been trying to sell the eatery for about 18 months now.
The restaurant, which is on the market with Cornerstone Business Agents is now available at a “slightly reduced” price of £800,000.
Mr Law who is 71, is looking forward to a “real” retirement following his time at The Lairhillock Inn after a long career in the fishing industry.
The businessman previously said the business had suffered due to a scheduled closure of the B979 Netherly being postponed without his knowledge.
He claimed to have lost out on as much as £12,000 of trade as a result of the delayed work on the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR).
He said: “It just seems like we have had one road closure after another for ages,” he said. “It has not helped us.”
He added completion of the AWPR this autumn “will be really helpful for whoever decided to take on the business.”
