Why Tarves is a great place to raise a family

Why Tarves is a great place to raise a family

Finding an area that is both kid-friendly and affordable is a conundrum many families face.

Somewhere with a park, local shop, family-friendly pub, schools - there's a lot of things to consider!

If you're thinking of moving to Tarves, you're heading in the right direction.

The quaint village of Tarves has a close knit community and is well equipped with various facilities from the convenience shop and post office, to hairdressers and cute cafes.

The primary school lies in the heart of the village and secondary schools in Ellon and Oldmeldrum are only a short drive away, making this a fantastic place to start and raise a family.

Within close proximity of Haddo House, Tolquhoun Castle and the Distillery Trail, there is always somewhere to visit and explore when not relaxing in the bustling pub or recently opened coffee house.


Tarves has an excellent range of properties with something to suit each individual household.
