The old shed will be revamped to form this 16-seater cafe at Stonehaven Harbour.

An old joinery workshop will soon be turned into the newest cafe on Stonehaven’s seafront.

Council planning bosses have approved proposals to transform an old shed next to the harbour.

The workshop, at the Backies car park, will be overhauled with an indoor seating area to serve 16 customers alongside a kitchen, serving area and accessible toilet.

Applicant Donald Junnier will also create an outdoor seating area for an additional 16 customers, while a servery hatch will be formed to pick up snacks without going inside.

New cafe will make Stonehaven Harbour more ‘viable’

The building was originally used as an equipment storage and repair unit for fishermen.

It was turned into a joinery workshop in 2014 to produce doors, windows and various furniture items.

Project agent Richard Dingwall Architects said the proposal would keep the site in “effective use” and add to the “vitality and viability” of the Stonehaven harbour area.

The cafe will join a number of popular eateries already in the area.

New Stonehaven Harbour cafe open for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

They added that the development would create part and full-time jobs.

The new café will serve a selection of soups, hot and cold sandwiches, salads, cakes and ice cream.

It is expected to be open seven days a week between 7.30am and 6pm.

Car parking for visitors will be available at the Backies car park and two cycle hoops will be installed to provide space for up to four bikes.

Stonehaven Harbour dates back to 1607 though it has been through many changes over the centuries.

It is a popular spot with tourists, with bars nearby and the town’s A-listed Tolbooth Museum to the immediate south of the site.
