Bank Lane is a wonderfully quiet lane that leads from Orchard Road to Forres High Street. As it is pedestrian at the top and one-way at the lower end of the road, there is no through-traffic. Although literally a few hundred metres from Forres High Street, the house and gardens are incredibly quiet.

Forres is a wonderful former Royal Burgh situated close to the Cairngorm Mountain Range and within 5 miles of the beautiful white-sand beaches that run from Findhorn to Burghead. Local amenities include good primary and secondary schools, supermarkets, banks, restaurants, doctor’s surgery and a variety of national and local retail outlets.
