Lot 1 - Carron
These two excellent building plots are located in a delightful setting on the edge of the hamlet of Carron, right at the heart of Speyside and the 'Malt Whisky Trail'. They offer all the benefits of real country living with uninterrupted views over fields to the west, yet are not isolated. The village of Aberlour (about 4 miles) has a good range of shops including an excellent delicatessen, a post office, banks, various restaurants and pubs. It offers highly regarded primary and secondary schooling as well as a doctor's surgery, cottage hospital and an award winning dentist. Further afield, Elgin (about 19 miles) offers a wider range of facilities including a modern shopping centre, various supermarkets and a railway station with services to Inverness and Aberdeen. The property is approximately equidistant between the two airports at Aberdeen and Inverness which provide excellent links to the south and overseas.
Moray and the historic county of Banff are renowned for their sunny and dry climate, and have a beautiful and varied countryside with a coastline of rich agricultural land, prosperous fishing villages and wide, open beaches. The upland areas to the South are sparsely populated and provide dramatic scenery, some of which forms the Cairngorms National Park. The unspoilt landscape provides a wide range of leisure and sporting opportunities including fishing on the world famous River Spey, skiing at the Lecht (Tomintoul) and Cairngorm range, and walking on the nearby Speyside Way, a stunning walk which follows the route of the former Speyside railway line. The area has a number of excellent golf courses. For the sailing enthusiast, the marinas at Lossiemouth and Findhorn offer excellent facilities.
