Buy a dream home in Scotland’s “happiest place to live”


Mactaggart & Mickel Homes are continuing their reputation for building quality homes in sought-after locations, as Troon, the location of their Braemore Wood development, is named Scotland’s happiest place to live.

A recent survey* found the seaside town to rank higher than any other place in Scotland for happy residents and quality of life.

Set within sheltered prime woodland, Braemore Wood is an excellent choice for families looking for a tranquil home. Once complete, the development will consist of 47 detached villas. All properties offer residents privacy and exclusivity, sealed with the Mactaggart & Mickel Homes standard of excellence.

There are two spectacular family house styles currently available offering the best in flexible living. The four-bedroom Orkney villa exudes style and elegance with a large kitchen/dining area that leads through double doors to the spacious lounge and patio, offering a great space to entertain friends. The first floor features four bedrooms all with ample storage, while the master bedroom has the added benefit of a walk-in dressing room.  The integrated single garage is another attractive feature of this home.

The impressive four-bedroom Lomond is thoughtfully designed to make the most of the space. The ground floor features an open-plan kitchen/sunroom providing the perfect place for the family to spend time together preparing and enjoying meals or just relaxing. On the first floor there are four generously-sized bedrooms ensuring that everyone has their own space. A family bathroom completes this floor.

It’s easy to see why Troon topped the list of happiest places to live. Its sandy beaches overlooking the Isle of Arran, fine restaurants and bars, boutique shops and superb golfing facilities make it a sought-after location with house hunters. The nearby railway station and road connections ensure that Glasgow and beyond are within easy reach.

Mactaggart & Mickel Homes offer a range of financial assistance packages to help househunters secure their dream home, such as their new Guaranteed Buyer Plan, which means the housebuilder can purchase a client’s current property at an agreed Part Exchange price if it is still unsold six weeks before the client is due to move into their new Mactaggart & Mickel home.

A sense of community also helps create happier places to live, and the Mactaggart & Mickel Homes Building Communities Fund invites good causes in Troon to apply for funding for activities or projects that benefit the local area.

The fund is open to applications from charities, community groups, sports teams and schools within a five mile radius of any live Mactaggart & Mickel Homes development across Glasgow, Ayrshire and the East.
