Buying in Inverurie
Inverurie, is a town and Royal Burgh of roughly 13,600 residents in Aberdeenshire. It lies at the confluence of the rivers Ury and Don, about 16 miles northwest of the city of Aberdeen. It is a prosperous town, with a rich history, and developed mainly as a result of the opening of the Elphinstone Canal in the 16th century linking the town to Aberdeen. In recent decades, Inverurie was known for locomotive engineering excellence, and paper milling. As these industries declined and the economics of the area changed, with the discovery of North Sea Oil in the mid-1970s, the town has evolved to become primarily an attractive commuter settlement for residents working in Aberdeen. So much so it has been dubbed at one time the fastest growing town in Britain.
Indeed, transport links to Inverurie are good with the A96 trunk road passing nearby and offering relatively fast transport into Aberdeen by car or bus. The town is served by its own railway station – Inverurie Station – which has regular services to Aberdeen in under 30 minutes travel time. There are coach services direct to Aberdeen and also a number of local services to other nearby settlements. Aberdeen International Airport is also a relatively short drive away in the town of Dyce, on the outskirts of Aberdeen.
In terms of amenities and things to do, Inverurie has an abundance of historical attractions to investigate. Ruins of the medieval Kinkell Church can be found to the south of the town and to the west is the debated site of Mons Graupius, where the Romans battled the Caledonians in 84 AD. At East Aquhorthies, two miles west of Inverurie, visitors can admire the excellent recumbent stone circle; a monument type only found in northeast Scotland. It has a large stone set on its side and flanked by two upright stones, usually on the south or southwest part of the circle.
The town also has a bustling main street, with an array of independent local shops, businesses and services, as well as some typical chains. There is a monthly Farmer’s Market too with lots of quality local produce available.
Inverurie is also a short distance from the popular range of hills, Bennachie. The hills, especially the Mither Tap, are popular with hillwalkers wishing to take in the panorama of the Aberdeenshire countryside.
Thanks to the proximity of the town to Aberdeen, residents can take advantage of the various amenities and things to do there too.
In terms of local education then, there are four primary schools and one secondary school for resident children. The primary schools are Kellands Primary, Port Elphinstone Primary, Strathburn Primary and Uryside Primary. Inverurie Academy is the local secondary school.
