Newmachar church
Newmachar church

Newmachar is a village in the north-east of Scotland, 10 miles to the north-west of Aberdeen with a population of just under 2,500.

The name originates from the original parish created in 1609, from part of the parish of St Machar's Cathedral. The name refers specifically to the village, originally known as Summerhill, with the surrounding parish being correctly known as New Machar. In 1928, the name Summerhill was changed to Newmachar, which was also the name of the railway station serving the village. The railway station, on the Formartine and Buchan Railway, closed in 1965[1].

The village contains two shops, two pubs, a car garage[2], a petrol station, a baker, a chip-shop, a pharmacy and a primary school.

The local Newmachar Golf Club located just outside the village is noted for being the official golf course of Paul Lawrie at the time he won the 1999 British Open[3].

The village was also the home to former Aberdeen FC player Neil Simpson who was part of the Aberdeen team which won the 1983 Cup Winner's Cup under Sir Alex Ferguson[4].

The local football team, Newmachar Colts, has been very successful recently, with last years under-19s team winning the Aberdeen and District B League for the first time in the clubs history.

It is also the home of the fanclub of metal/thrash band [5]
