  • Food quality of life, little crime compared to cities though it has increased in recent years. For 10,000 population, shopping very respectable with Tesco, Lidl, Aldi, Co-op, Farmfoods, Argos and Homebase all accessible on foot from town centre. Seafood capital of Scotland with several top class restaurants and a proliferation of good coffee shops, not a high wage economy with liitle or no industry or hi tech employment. Tourism is the biggest employer as fishing industry sadly declined in recent years, decent schools and friendly locals.

  • Hi, We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area. You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page. We hope this helps.
