Situation
Gourdon is situated between Montrose and Stonehaven, a mile south of Inverbervie and is one of the few natural harbours along this stretch of east facing Aberdeenshire coast. The population of the village is approximately 700 and its chief attraction for visitors is its strong sense of being a working fishing port.

During this time the business has grown considerably and is now achieving and annual net turnover in excess of £211,000 with a post office salary in excess of £10,000.
