Green Neuk Description
Green Neuk details
Green Neuk is set in 2 acres of woodland, which is a haven for wildlife including red squirrels and deer.
The house, which is built on an elevated position overlooking the Laich o Moray, enjoys far-reaching, spectacular views of the Moray Firth coastline and beyond.
The comfortable, energy efficient house is heated using an air source heat pump with underfloor heating and a wood burning stove ensuring the house is a warm refuge all year round. Stretching from the dramatic glens of the Cairngorms National Park in the South to the sandy beaches of the Moray Firth in the North, scattered here and there with picturesque towns and villages, and blessed with a pleasingly temperate climate, Moray is undoubtedly one of Scotlands hidden gems.
The city of Elgin is just 6 miles to the north of Green Neuk. It has a flourishing centre with a mix of small local shops and traditional high street names. Here you can find large supermarkets, 24 hour petrol stations, restaurants of all descriptions and all manner of shops and services.
Elgin is also home to Johnstons of Elgin, Scotlands second oldest family firm famous for their cashmere woollens and tweeds where as well as traditional shopping for clothing and interior design you can find coffee shops and even take a tour of the mill. Gordon and MacPhail, an independent family owned and managed firm which has been bottling Single Malt Whiskies for over 118 years, also has a flagship store in Elgin. Here you will be greeted with the aroma of home cooked local gammon, the largest selection of the finest cheeses available in North East Scotland and shelves packed with a fantastic array of high quality grocery products.
No visit to the Gordon and MacPhail store would be complete without a visit to the Whisky Room. Stocking around 1000 different single malt whiskies, the Whisky Room attracts customers from throughout the world to its crowded shelves. Browsing through the wide selection of whiskies, many of which are very old and extremely rare, you have entered the Aladdins Cave of whisky.
