Other shops and services are available at Alford, Kemnay and Banchory. Inverurie is also very convenient for amenities as well as the rail links to the north and south. There is easy access to the city of Aberdeen as well as to the Industrial and Commercial Estates at Westhill and the International airport at Dyce.

antique shop and proceed down a private track road for 1 2 mile, follow the road round and Strathmuir Steading is located at the bottom of the track.
