Piper welcomes first residents at Torvean in Inverness
The first residents at Torvean, our beautiful new development in Inverness, received a traditional Highland welcome with piper John McDonald greeting them as they picked up their keys.
Alasdair and Kirsten Mackintosh have moved from Edinburgh to their forever home in Torvean and were delighted by the welcome that awaited them.
Sales manager Jacqui McPherson, said: “The day the first people move in is always an exciting and important moment for any development and the whole site team turned out to say hello!
“Torvean is in such a lovely setting with the River Ness and the Caledonian Canal close by and a backdrop of hills that we thought a traditional Highland piper would be the right way to say: ‘Welcome Home!'”
Torvean will offer 114 new homes from three bedroom terraced and semi-detached properties to four, five and six bedroomed homes, most with views over the newly completed Kings Golf Course which wraps around the development.
Alasdair and Kirsten have bought one of our new house types, the four bedroom Guimard, which offers 1,641 sq ft of space cleverly designed to incorporate work from home space, a walk-in wardrobe and separate utility.
And Alasdair was full of praise for the whole Robertson Homes home buying journey including the Highland welcome!
He said: “The whole process has been a breeze and having the whole team turn out to welcome us with a Highland piper was just such a lovely touch, it showed how much everyone cares.”
The couple are both originally from the Inverness area and with their son now just turned two, they wanted to move back to be closer to both sets of grandparents.
They sold their home in Edinburgh last year and moved into a rental property in Inverness after finding their dream home at Torvean.
Alasdair said: “We knew Robertson Homes build really good family homes that are aesthetically pleasing and very high quality with excellent specification and extra touches like the garden rooms which are just amazing.
“Location wise Torvean is perfect and we chose the Guimard as the living area is huge and as every window is floor to ceiling it is flooded with light.
“The communication right the way though has been fantastic, the six-week moving in notice is really helpful and the date was met exactly. The whole team stuck to their promises and we cannot fault them.”
The couple both found new jobs in the area, Kirsten as a teacher and Alasdair as a contracts manager for SSE, and are now looking forward to their new life in Torvean.
Alasdair said: “We feel very lucky as we know this will be such a lovely place to live and to bring up our son.”
