11 Fife Street is an impressive town house situated in the popular town of Banff. Located on the Moray Firth coast at the estuary of the River Deveron, Banff is one of the best-preserved townscapes in Scotland with a grand Georgian upper town in addition to the older Scotstown area. The town also boasts two harbours and spectacular scenery, whilst there are a wide range of recreational activities within the area including golfing, fishing, water sports and stunning walking trails. Banff has good day to day amenities including an array of shops, banks, hotels, restaurants, cafes, a health centre and schooling at both primary and secondary levels.
The historic city of Elgin is 35 miles away and provides a comprehensive range of shops and amenities whilst the surrounding area offers some excellent hotels, restaurants and historic local attractions. Aberdeen is located some 46 miles away, and provides all the leisure, recreational and entertainment facilities expected from the oil capital of Europe. It also provides good transport links with a mainline railway station and is host to an airport providing both domestic and international flights.
11 Fife Street is a wonderful, grade B listed town house situated in a convenient yet quiet town centre location.
