Deer Park Heights is in a great location and has the added bonus in that I absolutely love my new apartment! As someone who works in sales in the housebuilding industry, I was very impressed by the quality of the build, and the attention to detail from both Liz Sweeney the Muir Sales Advisor and Tommy the Site Manager who could not do enough for me. They made the whole process of buying and moving in, a stress free process.
We wanted to buy outwith Aberdeen as you get so much more for your money here in Laurencekirk. We’ve opted for the Newark, a very spacious four bedroom detached house which has all the features we need. We are in a commuter friendly location, so we are very pleased indeed. Muir Homes really do go the extra mile to help their buyers feel at home.
We were happy and settled in Laurencekirk but wanted a brand new house for easy maintenance. When we realised Muir Homes were building here we checked out the company’s reputation, and the design and specification of the new homes. We were impressed and jumped at the chance to buy one. We’ve chosen the Kinkell, a three bedroom detached villa with a garage, and we’re delighted with it. Muir Homes’ customer service has been fantastic and we would happily recommend the firm to others
My husband and I received fantastic customer service from Muir and we would not hesitate to recommend the company to others. We are absolutely delighted with our new home at Gamekeepers View. As we were retiring, we wanted to move to a more rural location but still in a house with enough space and features for us, and close to amenities. The Muir staff on site and in the Sales Office have been so accommodating and have ensured we have settled in well here.
We are loving our new apartment here at Deer Park in Livingston – Muir Homes made it so easy for us to move with ease and confidence, nothing was too much trouble and the customer service was exemplary. This is a great location – we feel so relaxed here and as golfers can’t wait to take advantage of the facilities such as the golf course and country club – we feel like we are on holiday but this is actually our home! Thanks Muir Homes for a superb service and a stunning new home!
We are absolutely delighted with our new home here at Silverdykes – Muir really could not do enough for us, all the staff from the Site Agent to the Sales Advisors have been fabulous and we were able to customise our property to our own requirements. We love the area – we are retired now and it offers a fantastic lifestyle and is a place where we always wanted to live and enjoyed visiting. Thank you Muir Homes for giving us our dream retirement property. We are happy to recommend the development to anyone.
While Scotland may not be huge, the variety it offers in terms of living situations is second to none. From the glowing cultural hotspots of Glasgow to the mountains of the Cairngorms and the dreamlike beaches of the North-West, the choices can be overwhelming! Below, we take a look at some things you may want to consider when deciding where to live in Scotland, with a few ideas of places that could be perfect for you. Urban vs Nature It can often be hard to choose between enjoying the benefits of urban life, and its plethora of cinemas, shops, and art galleries, and the quiet beauty of wild landscapes. While the two may at first seem incompatible, in many parts of Scotland they’re really not! Around the general Glasgow area, there are several locations where you can be on nature's doorstep, while a 25-minute drive from the city centre! One such location is Inverclyde. A mere 25-minute drive from Glasgow, it sits just above the Clyde Estuary, with Loch Lomond visible in the distance. Sunny Aberdeenshire While sunny isn’t always a word that’s associated with Scotland, you’ve just got to pick your spot. Aberdeen is often the sunniest city in Scotland, and can be an absolute delight! As a city with a large student population, it has a vibrant atmosphere, with multiple gorgeous beaches up and down the coastline. It’s also a short drive from the western side of the Cairngorms, with heaps of opportunities for adventures, and keen fishermen will have plenty to explore in the Rivers Dee and Don among others. A healthy distance from Edinburgh Edinburgh is gorgeous, but it can be quite full-on – if you want to be close but not too close, a great place to live while taking advantage of its proximity is in the coastal town of Dalgety Bay. Just across the Forth Bridge from Edinburgh, it’s just 30-minutes away on the bus and the train, giving you access to all the wonders of Edinburgh, without leaving you trapped in its midst every day. The bay itself is just gorgeous, a calm haven in the heart of Fife. The town has a deep history, lying on the ruins of an ancient village - the main remainder of that village, 12th-century church of St. Bridget’s Kirk, really is a must-see. A little more rural Sometimes we just need to get away from it all; the hustle and bustle of the city isn’t necessarily useful, especially not when you’re at a stage in life when you’re ready for something quieter. There are near endless rural gems in Scotland, one of which is Auchterarder. The town of Auchterarder provides you with all you could need, while the whole of Perthshire lays at your feet. If you’re a golf fan, the world-famous Gleneagles golf course is just a 10-minute drive away!

The savings I have enjoyed since moving here to The Green are quite remarkable as I was in an old Manse before which had very expensive oil fired central heating. I now find that my new house is extremely warm and cosy and my Direct Debits on both gas and electricity have come right down. It’s not just the energy efficient heating – the double glazing is of a superior standard and the house is very well insulated. Last winter I really reaped the benefits and I am hoping that I will be similarly comfortable this winter even if conditions are severe once again.
Having been down in England for the past 48 years we wanted to come back to Scotland where we have family. We also wanted another bungalow as we had one in England and it suited us. We did a bit of research on the internet and found the Muir Homes development at Castlefleurie, Leven – their bungalows looked ideal with good sized gardens too. We came up to see the development, met the Sales Advisor who was very friendly and helpful and decided to go for it. We love the house, it’s very well finished, and Muir have been really good helping us settle in.
We are very pleased with our Bute three bedroom detached property at Castlefleurie in Leven. We very much wanted a detached house and it fits the bill perfectly. Prior to buying, we visited the Muir Homes development at Inchture and were very impressed with the high standard of finishes displayed in their show house there. We wanted to settle in Fife and were delighted to hear that Muir Homes had a development in Leven. Having seen a Bute house first hand we knew that this was the house for us. Castlefleurie is turning out to be a great place to live.
The location is great for us here as we are both interested in and have our own small yacht which is now in Dysart harbour. We’ve always liked the idea of living by the coast, we’re less than ten minutes from the harbour along the Fife Coastal Path which is great because we like walking. We’ve settled in really well, love the layout of our new Muir home and we’re both enjoying living here.
Muir Homes were absolutely fantastic from start to finish, a great firm to deal with. I am happy to recommend them to anyone. I love this area here in Inchture and am delighted with my new Harris villa – it has everything I was looking for in a new home.
Having moved from an older property, I was really surprised at how much my direct debits have come down for gas and electricity when moving to a new Muir home here at The Green. We liked the area and were looking for a new property and The Jura ticked all the boxes when it came to a great layout which really works for us. It’s an added bonus to have this new energy efficiency built in – we have not yet had a winter in the house as we moved in in July but I am confident that we are going to see some real savings which will be fantastic. I would encourage anyone to buy new with Muir, they really are helping their buyers make significant savings at a time when it really matters.
We had been looking for a house at the other side of the Clyde initially but when we went along to Castlebank we really fell in love with the location and the lovely views. The Falkland showhome was stunning and once we knew it was for sale we knew we had to have it – it was the one – we are delighted and have had great service from Muir Homes. Our daughter was also impressed and ended up buying a house on the development too so we are all really pleased.
We were moving back to Scotland from Dubai and experienced a very efficient stress free move with Muir Homes to The Castleton development at Auchterarder. The Sales Advisors were excellent and kept us well informed of the build progress whilst we were still living abroad. After selecting our preferred plot, Muir Homes allowed us to select a different housetype, which no other builder would have allowed us to do. We really appreciated this change, as we had fallen in love with the four bedroom Skye housetype. We were also allowed to add flooring and have a Conservatory installed, all before we moved in. This all combined to make the house into our new home. Auchterarder is such a great location, we love the village life and know we are going to be very happy here. Overall we are delighted with the service that we received from Muir Homes and simply love our new home.
Everything went smoothly as Linda made everything go well. For a new home, it is a really good size. The bedrooms are big and the kitchen is massive. What we got included in the price would have been extras with other builders such as the turf in the back garden.
We have had fantastic service from Muir Homes. We reserved our new property early and the Sales Executive could not have been better. Inchture is the ideal location for us as we wanted somewhere out of town but still close enough to our places of work. We were after a detached house and are really delighted with the property we chose – the three bedroom detached Bute.
Buying or selling a property can be a daunting task, and how your experience goes depends to a large degree on the estate agent you choose. Choosing an appropriate estate agent when selling your home is important for a number of reasons; it will determine how much you’re offered, how smoothly the process goes, and how many nights you’ll spend awake worrying over the time it takes for the sale to be carried out. Below, we take a look at some important things to look for in an estate agent when selling your home. 1. Compile a list There will be several estate agents operating in your area, so gathering all their details together is a good first step. From there, you can do some simple initial research – see if you like the look of the team and if the kinds of properties they’re currently selling are similar to yours. Have they presented their properties in a good way, and do they offer the exact service you’re looking for? Through this initial search, you’ll probably have whittled down the list down to just a few agents, and have some top contenders to go through in more detail. 2. Meet them You’re going to be interacting a lot with your agent over the next months or maybe even years, so you need to know that you get along. There’s nothing like meeting someone face to face to get a good feel of whether you trust them, whether they’re friendly, whether they’re helpful. If you don’t trust them, then nothing else really matters, they’re not suitable. 3. Property valuation Get several valuations of your property, asking each agent to explain how they’ve come to the figure they have. You’ll be able to get a good idea of how professionally diligent they are through this, and how thorough they are in their estimation. Agents with more experience selling similar properties will likely be able to give a better estimate than less experienced agents, and be better equipped to market and sell your specific property type. 4. Ask them how they’ll sell it Ideally, you want an agent with a lot of prospective buyers they can contact and show your property to. A good estate agent is someone with connections, as a result of being good at their job and being a people person. See what ideas they have for photographing and styling it, and if they can show you similar properties they’ve successfully sold in the past. If they illustrate that they can sell your house, and have a good track record of getting close to the asking price, these are good signs. 5. Fees If they look like a suitable candidate, go through their fees with them, and have some other agents’ fees to compare them with. You want an agent who’s open, and isn’t trying to hide anything from you; hidden fees might not be significant in terms of the overall cost, but they’ll sow the seeds of a breakdown of trust. Paying a little more than the competition for a truly excellent agent will end up making you money in the long run! Looking to buy a new build home from the outset?
