The Duke and Duchess of Fife have launched the first retirement show homes at a new Aberdeenshire town.
A total of 94 new one and two-bedroom apartments and cottages at Landale Court in Chapelton are due to be completed in early 2019, by Brio Retirement Living.
Landale Court is a 2000-acre site, which is being built on the Duke of Fife’s Elsick estate and his ambition is to create a community where residents can live, work and move about.
The Duke said: “It’s vitally important to me that Chapelton is a thriving, mixed community.
“There are good local amenities and a real community spirit, social get-togethers and leisure activities are organised for those who want to get out and about.”
