Located just to the north east of nearby Inverurie — in the picturesque heart of Aberdeenshire — Oldmeldrum is a historic market town with real cultural significance.
You’ll find Scotia's Chapelpark development in a quiet, residential area on the edge of town, close to the much-loved Meldrum House Country Hotel & Golf Course.
Situated within comfortable walking distance of Oldmeldrum’s main Market Square and its various amenities, Chapelpark residents will appreciate the space, heritage and lifestyle of country living, while also enjoying the chic and modern comforts of their truly contemporary home.
Situated just north of the A96 — connecting Inverness and Aberdeen — the town of Oldmeldrum is very well placed for access to the north of Scotland's two major cities.
It's also a short drive from the North East 250 — an increasingly popular driving route for tourists and locals alike, spanning Aberdeenshire, the Cairngorms National Park, Moray, Speyside and more.
To live in Oldmeldrum is to live at the gateway to the iconic Scottish Highlands, and Chapelpark residents will find the adventure and stunning scenery of the Cairngorms National Park less than an hour’s drive away. This is a place where sprawling forests, rugged mountains and incredible vistas are just around the corner.
Whether you’re planning day trips with family, enjoying outdoor pursuits or providing the ‘wow’ factor for visiting guests — the opportunities to explore and appreciate the north of Scotland are there in abundance when you’re a Chapelpark resident.
Less than 10 miles to the north of Chapelpark lies Fyvie Castle — an impressive Aberdeenshire fortress, in lush grounds, that stands as a living monument to Scottish Baronial architecture and the histories, legends and folklore that surround its existence over the past 800+ years.
Around 15 miles south of Oldmeldrum, you’ll also find Castle Fraser — home to the Fraser family for over 400 years. Both of these historic Scottish landmarks contain many treasures, are surrounded by beautiful gardens and, as National Trust for Scotland sites, are open to public visitors.
Between Oldmeldrum and Ellon is the stately home and visitor attraction, Haddo House. Designed in 1732 by William Adam and luxuriously remodelled in the 1880s, it’s an elegant and opulent house that contains an impressive art collection and in recent years has played host to an array of popular events, particularly in music and the arts.
Oldmeldrum’s main Market Square is a hub for local businesses, established amenities and cosy cafes — including an award-winning butchers, a local chemist and a popular bakery/cafe — ensuring you’ll always have life’s essentials close to hand.
Nearby Inverurie is a short drive away, and there you’ll find major grocery retailers such as Marks & Spencer, Morrisons, Aldi and Lidl, along with a host of bars, cafes, shops and eateries, including the award-winning restaurant at Inverurie Garden Centre — a popular choice for locals and visitors. The close proximity between Oldmeldrum and Inverurie offers a sense of shared community and means you can enjoy the best of both towns at your leisure.
Less than 20 miles from Oldmeldrum, Aberdeen city centre’s wide range of shops, dining, entertainment and cultural attractions means Chapelpark is perfectly placed for those who want the tranquility of the Aberdeenshire countryside while still living in close proximity to a forward-thinking city with lots to offer.
The third most populated city in Scotland, Aberdeen’s reputation as both a seaport of historical importance and a hub for the North Sea energy sector is well-earned — but this only tells part of the story, and the city's ongoing evolution includes a thriving food scene, internationally-acclaimed street art and imminent plans for major city centre rejuvenation work.
