Kindrochit Court Housing...is the working title for the planned development in Tomrichton wood, where the farm buildings currently stand. The project was originally granted planning permission in 2014 for 11 affordable houses and flats. In 2019, a study identified the potential to build up to 15 houses, carefully positioned in the sunniest parts of the site. Braemar Community Limited have now teamed up with Rural Housing Scotland and Sam Foster Architects, who carried out the 2019 survey, to work together to make this long-spoken-about project happen.

Over the next twelve months acquisition of the site will be negotiated, funding for the housing identified and the technical designs for the project developed. Feedback from the community has established a strong desire to create a new road to access the site – minimising the need to use the existing, tight access track.

Architect Sam Foster, now working with Rural Housing Scotland, said: “We are very pleased to be able to continue working with residents and businesses in Braemar to take the findings from the feasibility study to the next stage. The site at Kindrochit Court has enormous potential for high quality, low-carbon, affordable homes to provide secure accommodation to those living and working in the area.”
