I have worked as an architectural technologist for more than 20 years and i just love property, when my mum passed away, I decided to invest in this property and create a home from home for guests that need to travel for either pleasure or work.
William purchased this House in 2017
Why William chose Banff
The story behind Josie's House is called after my mum Josephine, my mum passed away in the hospital across the road called Chalmers Hospital 3 years ago and i used some the money my mum left me in her will to buy and refurbish it, so I felt I would dedicate it to my mum.
What makes this House unique
Outside there is a large private garden, which is a sun trap, with gas BBQ and outdoor furniture to enjoy some Al Fresco dining. The property benefits from full gas central heating through a system boiler with a 300 litre water tank, which provides heating and hot water.

Around Banff / Macduff and Surrounding Area
To help you make the most of your time in Banff and on the Banffshire and Moray Firth coasts, you may find the following information useful.
Banff would make a great base for being close to all the local activities, such as golf, whisky trails, Castle’s, Festivals & Events, outdoors pursuits , Aberdeenshire & Banffhire Coast, Royal Deeside, Museums & Galleries, Excellent Food & Drink restaurants within walking distance, such as The Banff Springs Hotel, The Fife Lodge Hotel and the newly refurbished Knowes Hotel in Macduff and it is only 46 miles from the city of Aberdeen.
A tour around Banff will take in many of the architectural highlights, with fine examples of Georgian architecture, but the emphasis is not all on the past. The town’s old harbour has recently been developed as a marina, complete with a webcam which enables visitors to wave to their family and friends back home.
The town’s historic heyday include Banff Castle - its distinctive yellow façade is instantly recognisable when entering the town from the east across the salmon-rich waters of the River Deveron – and 1 High Shore, which is said to be one of the finest examples of townhouses in Scotland and we also have Duff House the grand mansion that was built in the 1700’s. It is now a permanent collection of art from the National Galleries of Scotland, during its lifetime it has been everything from a palm court hotel to a prisoner of war camp.
Many crafters and artists have established themselves in Banffshire – there is an annual arts festival held in Banff in May – and it is possible to buy a unique souvenir of a visit to the area from some of the small, independent shops in the town.
There are many fantastic walks in Banff, but the most spectacular is surely from Scotstown – dotted with traditional fishermen’s cottages – to the stunning sandy beach at Banff Links which not only offers up the opportunity to spot dolphins and porpoises, but is one of the best locations in the country for surfing.
