LOCATION
Woodburnden is located a short drive away from Laurencekirk which offers a host of social, leisure and consumer facilities, including High Street retailers, Post Office, Banks, Sports Centre and Clubs, and a variety of quality Hotels. From a commuter’s viewpoint, Laurencekirk is ideally located for travelling to Aberdeen and Dundee by road and there are also direct bus and rail links, both north and south of the town.
Lathallan School at Johnshaven, only some 5 miles, is a highly regarded local private day and boarding school set in the Brotherton Castle. Alternatively excellent local education is provided by Laurencekirk Primary School and Mearns secondary school, which is a recently build modern facility.
More comprehensive facilities are available at Aberdeen and Dundee both of which provide all the recreational, entertainment, educational and cultural facilities one would expect of large cities.
