Buying in Buckie
Buckie is a town in the Moray council area of Scotland, with some 8,800 residents. It is located on the Moray coast. Indeed, its location made it a thriving fishing and shipbuilding port in times past. Today, however, Buckie is a small yet charming fishing town with a thriving harbour with great scenery and wildlife nearby. The town maintains a ‘traditional’ yet friendly feel. Its fishing port and fish markets are still a major part of the local economy, as is offshoring, with many of the residents working in these sectors. Additionally, the nearby RAF Lossiemouth base is a considerable employer in the region too. There are regular bus services to Aberdeen, Elgin and Inverness. Keith Railway station is a short distance away for when you want to travel further afield.
Buckie is quite an idyllic small town offering plenty for residents and visitors alike. In terms of amenities and things to do, Buckie offers everything you could need and more, surprisingly, for a town of its size. The usual chain stores feature, as well as a great choice of numerous quality independent shops, eateries, and pubs. The town also has several facilities including a leisure centre, two cliff-top golf courses – Buckpool Golf Club and Strathlene Golf club. Strathlene is widely recognised as one of the oldest courses in Scotland and presents a challenging 18-hole course for residents and visitors alike. There are two outdoor bowling greens too and a cricket club. However, where Buckie really shines is in the availability of outdoor pursuits. The stunning Bow Fiddle Rock can be seen near Portknockie to the northeast of Buckie and the stunning beaches with spectacular long walks along the coast and abundance of wildlife add to the appeal of the area – dolphin spotting is common, and they are seen regularly, in addition to otters and ospreys. Buckie is also the start and end of “The Speyside Way”, which is a popular walking route stretching from the shore of the Moray Firth coast, south-westwards to Aviemore on the edge of the Cairngorm Mountains. Overall, it covers an approximate distance of 65 miles.
In terms of local schooling, Buckie has four primary schools: Buckie Primary School, Millbank Primary School, St. Peter’s RC Primary School, and Portessie Primary School. Buckie High School is the local secondary which also serves as the main secondary school for the other towns and villages nearby.
