Set against the backdrop of stunning countryside, it’s hard to believe Dubford is only a ten minute drive from Aberdeen city centre.
The development is on the periphery of Bridge of Don: a sought-after suburb and gateway from the north.
Scotstown Local Nature Reserve lies to the west. The site of special scientific interest has a diverse range of habitats and wildlife, including roe deer, fox and owls.
In Bridge of Don itself – one of Europe’s largest suburbs – there’s a wide range of shops, hotels and restaurants, as well as sports and leisure facilities. There are seven local primary schools, as well as the Bridge of Don and Oldmachar Academies.
And you don’t have to go far to experience the area’s centuries’ old heritage: the Mundurno Standing Stone – also known as the Dubford Stone – stands in an open field to the north. Measuring around seven feet tall, it’s the last remnant of an ancient circle.
And the oldest of three bridges linking Bridge of Don to Aberdeen is the 13th century Brig o’ Balgownie: a scheduled ancient monument.
Local schoolchildren named the third crossing, opened in 2016, the Diamond Bridge in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and to recognise Aberdeen’s links to the naval destroyer HMS Diamond.
Blending an idyllic rural surrounding and views to the coast, to close proximity to Aberdeen and its world-class amenities, Dubford truly is a great place to live.
The A90, the main route south to Aberdeen, is only a few minutes’ drive from Dubford, and to the west the B997 leads directly to Bridge of Don. Regular buses connect Dubford with the city centre, and the Bridge of Don Park and Ride service is just two miles away.
