“Having lived in Banchory for over 40 years, I just couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. We never considered moving anywhere else, as the community is so lovely and the schools are fantastic - one of which is attended by my daughter. I’ve always said that we have Banchory hearts, so leaving the area just never crossed my mind.
“In terms of why we needed the move, it was a case of merging families since my partner Grant stayed in Dyce, we really needed a bigger home where everyone had their own space. I was staying in a house that was over 30 years old, and Grant was very keen to move into a new build home - we were very excited about the prospect of buying a brand new house and making it our own together.”
