Five reasons to live in Aboyne

Five reasons to live in Aboyne

Whether you're a house hunter looking to start a family or getting ready for retirement, the historic Royal Deeside village of Aboyne has something for everyone.

Community Spirit

The village has a big community spirit and new comers are welcomed with open arms. There are lots of opportunities to socialise and you will often find the locals in one of the lovely independent cafés, restaurants or public bar which hosts live music events. 

Keeping it local

Aboyne boasts many local businesses including banks, a small but well stocked supermarket, several hairdressers and beauticians, gift shops, newsagents and wonderful butchers who pride themselves on using local produce, a travel agents, post office, shoe shop, outdoor clothing/equipment, pharmacy, and the famous Strachans of Royal Deeside where you can buy just about anything you can think of!

Down with the kids

For families, there are excellent primary and secondary schools both with brilliant reputations and very dedicated teaching and support staff. There are lots of playgroups and other activities on hand to keep your children entertained (and to try and tire them out!) including tennis courts, canoe club, water skiing club, pilates, bowling green and many more.

Countryside retreat

Situated on the edge of the Cairngorms and located only a short drive to the Glenshee and Lecht Ski Resorts, Aboyne is an outdoor enthusiasts dream! There are lots of different hill walks and mountain climbs close by, as well as other outdoor pursuits including horse riding at nearby Glen Tanar Estate, where you can take in the breath taking scenery of the Mount Keen; prestigious 18 hole Golf Course with popular Club House and set on the banks of the Aboyne Loch; and the ancient Caledonian Pine Forest.

Something for everyone

Housing choice is very varied from flats, modern developments of both small and large family homes, grand traditional granite houses, converted steadings and one off architect designed properties.
