Buying in Huntly

Huntly is a small attractive town of roughly 4800 residents in the Aberdeenshire council area formerly known as Milton of Strathbogie. It is roughly 40 miles northwest of Aberdeen and about 22 miles northwest of Inverurie. The town is on the site of the now ruined Huntly Castle, with parts dating back to the 12th century. Huntly is reputable for some of the region and country’s best food and drink, including whisky, ice cream and shortbread. Deans Bakers which will be well-known to most shortbread lovers makes its home in the town.

Huntly is a compact town with a rich history one might not assume from its size. There is evidence of settlement as far back as the Neolithic period some 12000 years ago. More recently Huntly Castle now a ruin was once a lavish residence of the Earls of Huntly, who were one of the most important Catholic families in Scotland. It welcomed many visitors in its time such as Robert the Bruce and Mary of Guise amongst others.

Today, Huntly is a local services centre for agriculture and food sectors to the nearby towns and villages, but a significant number of residents also commute for work. Typically, this is to Inverurie, Aberdeen, Dyce, Keith, and even out to Turrif, Buckie, and also to Elgin. Transport links for the town are good, with the A96 running past the southern edge of the town and offering easy onward travel to Aberdeen and Inverness with the towns and villages in between. For travel by train, Huntly train station is on the Aberdeen-Inverness line and offers daily services for travellers.

In terms of amenities and things to do, Huntly has the typical array of independent shops and chains you would expect. However, worth particular mention is the Glendronanch Distillery in the town, which has been creating Scottish malts for 200 years. The Duncan Taylor specialised whisky shop is a particularly good place to find some rare and exciting whiskeys. Huntly itself is on the edge of the popular Speyside whisky trail and is a regular stop for those exploring the whiskeys of the region. Huntly is also home to Deveron Projects, an arts organisation that invites artists from all over the world to come and live and work in the town. Since 1995 it has worked with a ‘town is the venue’ methodology, connecting artists, communities and places and to date over 100 renowned artists have spent time in the town, including Roman Signer and Hamish Fulton. In terms of more sporting pursuits, many residents and indeed visitors enjoy salmon and trout fishing on the Rivers Deveron and Bogie. There’s also golf and Nordic Skiing in Clashindarroch Forest, as well as plenty of trails for walking and nature spotting, plus mountain biking. There’s a nearby falconry centre too, and a little claim to fame for it is four of their owls starred in the Harry Potter film series.

In terms of local schooling then, the local primary school is Gordon Primary and a secondary school (The Gordon Schools) beside Huntly Castle.

        Buying in Banchory

        Banchory is a small, affluent, rural burgh town of roughly 7,500 residents in Aberdeenshire that has seen considerable expansion in recent years. It is surrounded by lovely rural forest and agricultural land, about 18 miles west of Aberdeen, nearby to where the Water of Feugh river meets the River Dee. It is primarily a self-contained dormitory town for Aberdeen, but it is also a thriving tourist spot because of its local attractions not to mention it is a great base to explore the nearby Cairngorms National Park.

        Despite being a dormitory town for Aberdeen, transport links currently exist by road only. Due to the recent growth in the town, there is much discussion about expanding the available transport links, most significant is the reinstatement of trains on the Deeside Line to the old Banchory Railway Station.

        In terms of attractions and things to do, Banchory is abundantly served to locals and visitors alike. Banchory High Street has several independent businesses you would expect like newsagents, takeaways, restaurants, and pubs, as well as nearby hotels and other businesses to cater for the area’s tourist trade. Banchory Golf Club caters to the local golfers. Tourists typically use Banchory as a fantastic base to explore Royal Deeside – indeed, Banchory is known as the Gateway to Royal Deeside – the area that captivated Queen Victoria with its characteristic Scottish blend of scenic mountains, crags, rivers and moors and forest land. The Royal Deeside area offers excellent opportunities for outdoor activities such as walking, biking and wildlife watching, and many accommodation options. It is also a gateway to the Cairngorms National Park, which has in itself an abundance of things to do and see.

        Other attractions include Scolty hill; a hill topped by a tower monument acting as a memorial to General Burnett who fought alongside the Duke of Wellington in the Napoleonic Wars. Also, worth mentioning is the nearby Dark Matter Distillers, Scotland’s only rum distillery. Further still, Banchory holds an annual River Festival every June and features a weekend of varied activities for all ages. Similarly, the popular Banchory show is held annually in July with goings-on such as an agricultural show, a dog show, a craft fair, Highland games and dancing competitions, and more still.

        In terms of local schooling, the local primary schools are Banchory Primary and Hill of Banchory Primary. Banchory Academy is the local high school.

        As of April 2021, the average price for property in Banchory stood at £328,070. This is a rise of 0.49% in the last three months (since January 2021) and a rise of 5.78% since April 2020.
