MACDUFF'S oldest bakery is now open for business and busy with queues of buttery-lovers.

The Home Bakery in Macduff, which will be 100 years old next year, opened again last week after being closed in 2016.

The much-loved bakery, known for serving butteries at 1am on Saturday closed its doors after former owners Jim and Stella Duguid retired. It was previously called Duguid Bakers.

The bakery has now been taken over with an extra addition – a new café called Bake Hoose.

Manager Andrea Lovie said that the opening of the new bakery has created a buzz for the town.

She added: "We were really, really busy this week. If that is anything to go by I think it is going to very successful.

"We are sticking to very traditional bakes. One of our bakers is Polish and has made some traditional Polish recipes which people are trying. The idea for the café came from just having space to be able to have one.

"The idea behind it is so everyone can come in, even the fishermen in their oil skins."

The Home Bakery is open 6am to 7pm Monday to Friday and from 7am to 4pm on Saturdays, with it set to open from 9pm on Friday evenings from this week.
