HOW TO GET THERE Travelling south from Aberdeen, leave the A90 at the turn off for Portlethen and at the roundabout at the bottom of the hill, take the third exit signposted for Portlethen. Take the second exit at the next roundabout, continue along Cookston Road and turn left into Hillside Road. Continue through the roundabout – still on Hillside Road and Philorth is the third last house on the right hand side.
GENERAL The former village of Portlethen, which now has official town status, is situated approximately 7 miles to the south of Aberdeen and is within easy commuting distance of the City and also Stonehaven in the other direction. The amenities of the town have increased as the town as expanded in size. However, there is still easy access to the countryside and to the impressive Kincardineshire coastline. Even though there has been much house building in the town, there are still a number of natural areas including the Portlethen Moss Nature Reserve. The town provides plenty of access to “retail therapy” with the shopping areas at Portlethen Retail Park, the Green, Muirend Court and Rowanbank Court, in which areas most of the large retail outlets can be found. Within the main shopping areas, there is a variety of restaurant and takeaway outlets and there are four pubs. Education is provided at several Primary Schools (the house is in the catchment area for the newly opened Hillside Primary School which is within walking distance) and Portlethen Academy. Those of a sporting nature are well catered for with Portlethen’s own “private members” golf club, tennis courts, bowling green and two parks. There is an integrated community library and community centre within Portlethen Academy. Portlethen Church is a “landmark” of the town, standing as it does on a hill overlooking the town and eastwards towards the sea. There is a Medical Centre in the town. The railway station which reopened a number of years ago, as the town expanded, is handy for commuting to Aberdeen and for trips to the City and also to Stonehaven, Montrose, Arbroath and Dundee and areas further south.
