Situation
The village was founded at the beginning of the 19th century as a fishing port by William Young of Inverugie. It expanded when the New Harbour was built in 1838 for the export of stone from the nearby quarries. The old part of Hopeman has a grid-iron street layout and the main part of the village is set back from the beach. There is a village green with playing fields, playground and a skate park.

The B9012 passes west to east to the south of the village with the main street, Harbour Street, running north to south from the Harbour.

This magical part of the coast is also noted for its beautiful sunsets and magnificent views across the Moray Firth to the hills of Easter Ross and beyond. Nearby at Duffus Castle and the rich countryside of the Laich of Moray, the world famous Malt Whisky and Castle trails will take you through some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland.

Business
The Station Hotel is an extremely busy business that has been run by the current proprietors for almost 5 years. Due to ill health, the business has been placed on the market. During their tenure, they have built up a well performing business and upgraded many of the fixtures and fittings, including installing a new commercial kitchen.

The business benefits from strong local trade and has a pool team and a darts team.

The hotel opening times are Monday - Thursday 11:00am - 12:30am, Friday and Saturday 11:00am - 1:30am and Sunday 12:00am - 12:30am.
