Newtonhill is a farming village in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. It has been popular with farm workers and tradesmen for decades for its cheap housing and location, just six miles south of Aberdeen.



The village, originally called Skateraw and then Finntown, has three commercial outlets; A Tesco Metro Store, a convenience store - Morning, Noon and Night (Convenience Store) and a pharmacy. There are also two pubs in the village, Quoiters and The Newton Arms. Local events centre around the Community Centre, The Bettridge Centre.

Newtonhill Primary School serves the village and surrounding hamlets of Muchalls and Cammachmore.

  Historic features

Historically, there was a railway station in the older quarters of Newtonhill but this has now become defunct, operating as a signalling station only. Skateraw became most noticed historically for its fishing industry; the old smoke house is still visible in the lower village, though this is also not in operation.

  Transport links

Newtonhill today is accessed by the A90 road and functions primarily as a commuter town to Aberdeen and other business hubs in the Aberdeenshire area. The village is also well served by buses run by Stagecoach Group providing regular services to Aberdeen, Stonehaven and Montrose.

Newtonhill has a successful Boys Brigade chess team which has won the Scottish tournament many times and have won the British grand finals the most out of all British teams.[citation needed] There is an active community spirit in Newtonhill and many events are organised through the [2] Newtonhill and District Village Association, with wider planning issues being discussed by the Community Council.

Newtonhill is situated about one kilometre east of the ancient Causey Mounth road, which was built on high ground to make passable this only available medieval route from coastal points south to Aberdeen. This ancient passage specifically connected the Bridge of Dee via Portlethen Moss, Muchalls Castle and Stonehaven to the south.[1] The route was that taken by William Keith, 7th Earl Marischal and the Duke of Montrose when they led a Covenanter army of 9000 men in the first battle of the First Bishop's War in 1639.[2]


Newtonhill is located on the North-East coast of Scotland, approximately 9 miles south of Aberdeen and 6 miles north of Stonehaven.

Alongside the commercial enterprise of the local newspaper, The Mearns Leader, Newtonhill has a Local Community Radio Station in Mearns FM.[3] Broadcasting from nearby Stonehaven in the Townhall, Mearns FM helps to keep Newtonhill up to date with local and charity events, as well as playing a wee bit of music. Staffed completely by volunteers, Mearns FM is run as a not for profit organisation, broadcasting under a Community Radio licence, with a remit to provide local focus news events and programming. Jointly funded by local adverts and local and national grants. Mearns FM has one of the largest listening areas of any Community Radio Station owing to the Mearns' distributed population, Mearns FM was set up to try to bring these distant communities together.[4]

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
