A small development of just nine family homes comprising a mix of 4 & 5 bedrooms, our properties at Faircoille feature slate roofs, wet harling and striking timber cladding painted in a traditional Scottish manner. With a particular focus on the family living, eating and cooking areas, these homes are predominantly open plan and generously proportioned. Fully turfed gardens with established trees and beech hedging complete the exterior.
Faircoille is located on the edge of the small village of Finzean in the picturesque Finzean Estate, in South Deeside. Surrounded by soaring Scots pines and silver birch trees, our homes at Faircoille are arranged in an open layout around a quiet cul-de-sac, with expansive gardens and panoramic views set against the striking backdrop of Clachnaben.
A network of footpaths and trails through the surrounding woodlands connect Faircoille directly with nearby Finzean Hall, and on through the village as far as the award-winning Finzean Farm Shop and Tearoom. Finzean Church and Primary School are a 5-minute drive away, and easily accessible on foot or by bike, just a couple of miles along the trails from Faircoille.
An idyllic rural setting, Faircoille in Finzean is a prime spot for wildlife watching by day, and stargazing by night, enjoying very little light pollution. Finzean is a 10-minute drive from Banchory and Aboyne, and a 45-minute commute to Aberdeen. The A90 can be reached in just over half an hour via the scenic B974 road over the Cairn O’ Mount, giving easy access to the Angus glens, and south to the central belt.
From Aberdeen take the A93 towards Banchory. At the Dee Street traffic lights, take a left down Dee Street towards the B974. Once on the B974 follow it for about 7 miles through Strachan and onto the B976. When you reach Finzean, the Faircoille development is on the left just before you reach Finzean Hall on the right.
In the heart of the stunningly beautiful Finzean Estate this small development of 9 family homes sits within existing woodland at the edge of the village. The award winning Finzean Farm Shop is a short walk or bicycle ride away and you will feel once you have peddled up the hill that you deserve that extra slice of cake. Finzean Primary School has an excellent reputation with currently only 59 pupils from the surrounding community. Angus Farquharson has written a fascinating book on Finzean titled ‘The Fair Place’ – what an apt description.
Finzean is only 7 miles from Banchory or Aboyne and a 45 minute commute to Aberdeen.
