While they may not be as universally well known as places like Glasgow and Edinburgh, Aviemore and Badenoch offer real value for anyone looking to find a home. These quiet highland towns are picturesque, and offer the kind of scenery you've probably come to expect of places in the Highlands of Scotland.
Living in Aviemore & Badenoch
Roaming fields of green serve as the perfect foreground for mountains which soar above the ground. With more than a million visitors per year, tourism is unsurprisingly one of the most popular sectors for work. This booms in the summer months, with the colder periods of the year seeing the area turn back into a peaceful haven for villagers.
It's possible to lead a year-round outdoor lifestyle, while a close connection to the nearby city of Inverness means you're never cut off from the greater hub of activity if you're looking for a brief escape from the country. A wide range of sports and youth clubs are also available for anyone looking to socialise.
Where should you look for a house?
Despite its small size, Aviemore boasts plenty of variation when it comes to the types of houses you'll be able to find there. Semi-detached and detached houses are fairly common, while log cabins are amazingly also available for anyone really looking to immerse themselves in the Highland lifestyle.
Quaint cottages are also a common sight throughout the region. These come in a variety of sizes, from a standard two-bedroom, to much larger houses for all the family. Whether you're after a spot in the middle of town or somewhere a little more on the outskirts, you'll be able to find somewhere which matches your desires.
