Buying in Kintore
Kintore is a small but growing town in Aberdeenshire of roughly 4,800 residents. It is about 13 miles northwest of Aberdeen city centre and about 7 miles northwest of Aberdeen International Airport, just along the A96 road. Inverurie is just 4 miles away to the north. It is a former Royal Burgh but now serves as a popular commuter settlement. The heart of today’s Kintore is quite old-worldly, and the most notable of the buildings is the Town House. It was built on the former site of the main marketplace in 1747 and is a handsome stone building with a clock tower and curved stairs.
Many of the town’s residents do commute to work in Aberdeen today, as well as Dyce, Westhill, Inverurie, and Kemnay. Transport links for commuters are well developed by road with the A96 running along the western edge of the town. This allows for easy connections onwards to Aberdeen city centre and Aberdeen International Airport, as well as to Inverurie, Insch, Huntly and further still to Inverness. Recently in 2020 the town’s new railway station opened towards the north of the town offering more choices of transport. It is on the Aberdeen-Inverness line and delivers passengers to the city in about 20 minutes. Locally, however, agriculture is a significant sector and employer. Thainstone Agricultural Centre is one of the largest agricultural centres in Europe. There are also four business parks which house a range of businesses and companies serving the oil and gas, agriculture, food and drink, aviation, construction, transportation as well as your typical local business services.
In terms of local amenities, the town has the usual array of local shops, services and eateries, but residents almost share more amenities with Inverurie, which is just a 10-minute drive away.
Perhaps more interesting too is that the Romans were in Kintore; it is the site of the Deers Den Roman camp and is thought to relate to several invasions into Scotland before the Romans finally retreated behind the Antonine Wall and Hadrian’s Wall. Of course, much of that excitement has now gone, to be replaced by a quiet yet desirable commuter town for residents wishing to be close to Aberdeen but escape the busyness of the city.
In terms of local education today, the town is served by two primary schools, Kintore Primary School and Midmill Primary School. For secondary education, local pupils travel by bus to nearby Kemnay and attend Kemnay Academy.
At January 2023, property in Kintore stood at an average value of £227,369. Though different property types in Kintore have had different average selling prices over the last 12 months: £260,000 for detached properties, £201,750 for semi-detached, £207,000 for terraced and £86,625 for flats.
